Ready for a tangent?
I've recently been reading "Wild Cards I" (a shared world anthology edited by George RR Martin). Anywhoodle, in it, in 1946 an alien virus was unleashed over New York, and it affected people in different ways (some die, some are changed in good ways, some in bad). At least one was turned into a dog (with dog senses, but human thinking ability).
No point to this tangent really, your comment just reminded me of the story and I thought I'd share that with you.
On another note, I like cat eye shaped glasses. I have a pair of blinged out 1950's style sunglasses like that. I should wear them more.
