IKEA cats

There's a great new advert on TV for IKEA. Cats wander through the shop, investigating items and rolling on soft furniture, while fluffy kittens jump over beams of pink light. Every time it comes on I pause to watch; it calms me and makes me go warm inside! I'd like an hour long version to play on loop in the background to my day!

If you're a fan too, or if you don't know what I'm talking about(!) here's a link to an IKEA site that's based on the ad: IKEA CATS - you can play a 'match the cat with his favourite piece of furniture' game (and if you match them correctly you win that piece of furniture) or if you press the link at the top, called "Herding Cats", you can see a film about how they made the ad.... they put 100 cats into a real store at midnight, owners all waiting nearby, and then filmed them as they went exploring! Enjoy!

I don't watch TV so haven't seen the ad. What fun. I can see how it'd be relaxing to watch the cats roam IKEA.

Your birthday is just a few days before mine! I think I've got a decade or so on you though.

Yes, what a wonderful ad! I especially love the cat with all the light fittings :)

It makes me want a cat, and i'm allergic to them! Those little kittens are so beautiful.

I love watching them playing - but I wouldn't want to be responsible for rounding them all up after the event! They ARE cats!!!
