The Kickstarter campaign to replace all the tube adverts with photos of cats has raised £12,000

A few weeks ago, we shared the important news that The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) had started a Kickstarter campaign to replace to cover all the adverts in a tube station with pictures of cats. Why? Well, because they hate adverts, but love cats. Obviously. The campaign has had a mixed response so far. Fellow cat enthusiasts have so far donated more than £12,000, with one Londoner offering up a clean £2,500, which will get them an entire poster for their cat. 

But some people criticised the campaign for not doing anything to actually help cats in need. Thankfully, the folks at CATS have listened to these concerns and have since teamed up with Cats Protection and Battersea Dogs and Cats home so that the posters will feature stray cats from both charities, which people will be able to adopt.

The campaign ends at 2pm on Saturday, but needs to raise a total of £23,000 for it to go ahead. If you want to see a load of cute cats plastered all over a tube station, now's your chance to help make it happen.
