Now, this is a lovely news story. Clapham Common Tube Station in London has been overtaken by cats.

Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) ran a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds to remove all the ads in a Tube Station and replace them with pictures of cats. They were a success and now the cats are now ‘live’ in the station on all the advertising hoardings.

They’ve become a tourist attraction of sorts as people take pictures with the cats and enjoy their cuddliness. The cats will be in place for two weeks.

They plan to do this again. This is a cause we can get behind!

  1. This makes me feel better after reading about the disaster of the British Bake-Off. So nice to see cats rather than slick ads. I have a couple of posters by British artists in my California house that were on display in London tube stations in 1990. That was nice, too.

  2. I would like to see the Wimbledon tube station with an exhibit of the Wombles–photos and the music by Mike Batt.
