Cats in Space - Félicette

The original Astrocat.
This is Félicette, the first cat sent into space (France), 49 years ago from this day. 

She is cat number one, for the Cats in Space Hall of Fame.

It wouldn't be right to not include her.

Her space exploits total approximately 15 minutes. Pioneering the way.

Cats in Space Hall of Fame

So lately I have been painting portraits of brave Cats who have journeyed into the final frontier.

The Cats in Space Hall of Fame will be appearing in its entirety in the "Cats in Space" zine I have been working on.

I will be posting a new Cat weekly for the next while, starting next week.

If anyone has a favourite cat from space you think deserves to be commemorated, let me know so I can include them in the Hall of Fame.
