Possibly The First Ever Cat Video From 1894?
Cats videos aren’t necessarily a modern idea.
That’s what Atlas Obscura has suggested. The video, filmed by none other than Thomas Edison, shows two cats “boxing.” But don’t worry, no actual punches took place, just swipes in boxing gloves for about 30 seconds. Amongst his plethora of inventions, he was also a filmmaker. This cat boxing video is probably the least strange and least harmful of his collection.
Of all the things I can imagine cats doing in a video, boxing isn’t one of them. But Thomas Edison had other ideas (even if some of them were stolen *ahem*).
*whispers* I still prefer Nikola Tesla.
