Cats Eyes were invented by a man who saw a cat walking towards him.

If it had been walking away from him he'd have invented the pencil sharpener!

His name was Smith and, I believe, he was from Yorkshire.   I saw a quite interesting documentary on TV about him many years ago.

Actually invented by Percy Shaw...   And yes, he was a Yorkshire man :)

You did it again ;) That was Studio17.

 

I never did know what the "red" above the avatars meant.

I'm red, too. I thought it meant we're dangerous!
