Mary Shelly published her novel of Victor Frankenstein's inventions gone wrong 200 years ago. Before he built a man, Dr. Frankenstein built a cat. Experiment with static electricity and batteries. See all of the demonstrations Shelly witnessed. Then construct your own cat. No need for parts to match. Bring your cat to life with basic circuits, motors, switches, lights, and purrs.
