Description

Must see! Before grumpy cat, talking cat, angry cat and cat circles, comes 'Boxing Cats', the granddaddy of all cat videos.

This is officially the oldest cat video on the internet. We're sure you'll love this old timey video from the archives.

The footage was taken in July 1894 by Edison Manufacturing Company at the Black Maria Studio, America's first movie studio. It was filmed by William Heise and is called 'Boxing Cats'.

We understand that a video of cats boxing might upset some people. Never fear, you've done some good for our feline friends just by watching the video. Every year we'll donate 10% of the proceeds from this video to the Cat Protection Society in the UK. Mrrrrooow! Somewhere, cats are thanking you.

So share this video!
