That time the CIA tried to train cats to be spies

The idea, which was mooted in the 1960s, came about after an attempt was made to listen in on an unidentified head of state who was around some feral cats, Time reported.

It was noted that cats could move around an area without really being noticed.

The idea was to implant a small transmitter on the back of the cat’s neck while a microphone was attached by a thin cord to the animal’s ear.
