    London.

    Several shots of people carrying cat boxes into a building for the Kensington Kitten and Neuter Cat Club Show.

    Inside, we see several shots of people taking their cats and kittens out of boxes. The animals are groomed and put into cages. Good shots of extremely cute kittens and cats, including Siamese, Persian and a beautiful little black and white kitten who is examined by a judge. A dark Persian cat sits in a cage with a parrot. A woman sits with her little white Persian cat as an artist draws it.

    Mrs Gwen Duke, wife of Squadron Leader Neville Duke is mentioned in old record relating to this story. She is not referred to in commentary or text.

    Cuttings and notes on file. One of the patrons of the Kensington Kitten and Neuter Cat Club was actor Ernest Thesiger.
