the first astrokitty

Everyone knows about the first barker in orbit, Laika. But did you know about the first kitty?

1963 rocket launch with cat Félicette

Félicette was the first cat in space launched on 18 October 1963. Just over 55 years ago.

Sheesh. Can you imagine?! Every kitty I've had hated, I mean H-A-T-E-D, car travel. Can you imagine the howling inside the space capsule?!
