In the 1960s, the Central Intelligence Agency recruited an unusual field agent: a cat. In an hour-long procedure, a veterinary surgeon transformed the furry feline into an elite spy, implanting a microphone in her ear canal and a small radio transmitter at the base of her skull, and weaving a thin wire antenna into her long gray-and-white fur. This was Operation Acoustic Kitty, a top-secret plan to turn a cat into a living, walking surveillance machine. The leaders of the project hoped that by training the feline to go sit near foreign officials, they could eavesdrop on private conversations.

Too bad it cost them 20 million dollar ( remember, this was the 80's) for it to be run over by a car during the first test when the cat was fully "finished".
Served them right.

They will do anything they can to spy on people.  Which now they have their drones to do the job.

It is appalling but also kind of humorous in some way if one could ignore their methods. The thought wander how it would look like?
Maybe like this moggy? Look how he moves a few steps and freeze every time the camera moves out of view and back. A regular James Bond. :)

Obviously most of them are not pet lovers or ever owned a cat. They have minds of their own and probably think of their humans as THEIR pets. I hate all those warmongering sots.
