‘CATS’ Replace London Underground Ads in Feline Takeover

A crowdfunded campaign to replace ads with pictures of cats was launched today at Clapham Common Tube station in London. The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) replaced 68 ads in the station after organisers raised £23,000 on Kickstarter.

The featured felines are stray cats from two rescue charities, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and Cats Protection. The initiative is the first project from Glimpse, a new collective which aims to use creativity for social causes.

James Turner, Founder of Glimpse, commented:

“The idea is that it creates a peaceful, hopefully quite fun and funny space that you walk through on your way to work. It makes you feel a little bit different to the cacophony of ads you normally see on your commute.”
