Suffrage Cat

A simple suffrage cat outline

Using this cat is very simple. Print out this page, color the cat, cut it out, and paste it onto something thick and durable like card stock.

The history of the cat is very fascinating indeed. When British suffragettes were protesting for their rights, the journalists of many influential papers were against them. One such journalist commented that it was ridiculous to give women the right to vote and that it would be as absurd as giving cats the same rights.

Instead of being discouraged by this attempt at slander, the suffragettes chose the cat as their mascot of sorts, and the suffrage cat was born! This way of turning around bad propaganda was characteristic of the suffragettes, and soon the suffrage cat became famous all over the world.
