In 198, the Spanish flu ravaged America. Curiously, the city of Dublin, California found an old 1918 black and white photograph showing an entire family wearing face masks, including the family cat.

Historians aren’t sure if the cat is really wearing a face mask or not, but from the picture it looks like it is. That shows how people cared for their own lives and their pet’s lives by wearing face masks. So if you’re against wearing face masks, consider letting your cat wear one.
