The campaign to honor the first cat in outer space

A cat named Félicette gets ever-widening recognition as being the first cat intentionally (and probably otherwise, too) launched into outer space.

Félicette has many admirers, and has admired research into the history of the thing, and inspired artists, too.

(Thanks to Brent Freeze for bringing this to our attention.)

NOTE: The saga of Félicette should not be confused with the also delightful—but fictional—story of Esther the Cold War Kitty.
