In the 1870s, the city of Li猫ge, Belgium, attempted to employ 37 felines as mail carriers, according to the BBC. Messages were tucked into waterproof bags that the kitties would carry around their necks. However, while one cat apparently made it to its destination in under five hours, the other felines took up to a day to complete their journeys. Due to the fact that the cats weren鈥檛 particularly reliable and definitely weren鈥檛 speedy, the service didn鈥檛 last very long.
