Five years before Billy Farmer became The Leopard from Lime Street in Buster, "ordinary Cathy" fought crime as The Cat Girl in IPC's new girls' weekly Sally. The strip debuted in the first issue in 1969, and the example shown here is from Sally No.4, dated 5th July 1969.
Unlike Billy Farmer who was scratched by a radioactive leopard, Cathy's powers were derived from a non-violent source; a magical costume. When wearing the cat costume, Cathy became "agile as an acrobat, quick as a lightning flash".
Does anyone know who the writer and artist were of The Cat Girl? Let me know in the comments below if so. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy this look back at a forgotten British superhero!
