All the Ads in a London Subway Station Have Been Replaced With Cats!

In a campaign to challenge advertising norms,The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) project has replaced all the ads in a London underground train station with pictures of cats! CATS is the brainchild of Glimpse, a creative collective aiming for positive social change. Glimpse chose to use cats due to their internet popularity, and held a crowdfunding campaign to pay for the posters. They raised more than $30,000 (£23,000) with a 2-week Kickstarter campaign. Glimpse founder, James Turner, said he was surprised by the huge response to the project!

The portraits are either of cats from shelters in need of a home, or those owned by people who donated £100 or more to the project.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
