Trivia: Felicette was the first cat to do what?

Become mayor
Go to space
Win a cat show
Travel across the world

The correct answer is Go to space

So why is this answer correct? : Felicette, a French tuxedo cat later nicknamed Astrocat, went to space for 15 minutes in 1963. Before Felicette, the United States and USSR had both sent animals to space. But since France wasn’t a major player in the space race, Felicette wasn’t memorialized the same way as Ham the chimpanzee and Laika the dog. However, nearly 60 years after her trip to space, Felicette was memorialized in the form of a bronze statue at the International Space University.
