It is all over the internet. My source is the Sun newspaper. Declassified documents reveal that spy chiefs praised the pioneering work of implanting electronic hardware into domestic cats. It does not look so clever now.
The pictures are thumbnails. Click on them to see a larger version.
The cat was slit open. The chest housed the battery and the transmitter. The tail contained the antenna. The microphone was in the cat’s ear.
A former CIA agent said:
“They slit the cat open, put batteries in him, wired him up.”
“The work done on this problem over the years reflects great credit on the personnel who guided it..” (written by a senior CIA agent I suppose).
Where did they plan to deploy the spy cats? Export them to Russia or what?
The first spy cat was run over during trials. That must have put them off. I am not sure if it was remotely viable in the first place. Cats are independent as we all know.
It shows too that there was no compunction to operating on a cat and inserting all kinds of hardware. Or that is the impression I get.
P.S. I have written about this before, I have discovered. But this time I have some images.
