Kit-Cat Klocks have been selling in stores across the country since the mid 1930's. The cat's zany smile has filled homes and offices alike with joy and excitement. But why is he still so popular after all of these years? "Many letters arrive each year asking us to tell Kit-Cat's story,"says Woody Young, owner of the California Clock Company.
The Kit-Cat Klock was created in a small town on the west coast during the Great Depression. While the people of this nation were struggling to survive, the Kit-Cat Klock gave them a smile and entertained them with his rolling eyes and wagging tail. Knowing this, it is easy for us to understand how he can still bring comfort to many who remember those trying times. The depression years have long past and yet Kit-Cat's popularity increases each year. Kit-Cat owners know that whether times are good or bad, Kit-Cat's smile is constant. And his reputation as a healthy cat, living as long as 25 years in some cases, precedes him wherever he goes. For these reasons having a Kit-Cat has now become a tradition in many families not only in America but around the world.
