This is definitely a first. I have never seen anything like it. And it is very nice.
A furniture store, Furniture Village, in Preston, Lancashire, England has agreed to place cut out photos of named rescue cats on their furniture as seen in the pictures below to promote adoptions.
A spokesperson said that it was natural to promote the adoption of rescue cats because “customers arrive at stores looking for new and attractive items to enhance their homes and I think that these felines fall comfortably within such as description”. I like that a lot. Others should follow.
The rescue organisation working with the furniture store is Lancashire Cat Rescue founded by Christine Lomax in 1994.
“We are always happy to bring our cats to the attention of those who might offer them a good home. Though our four-legged residents might be blissfully unaware that they are making British retail history, I suspect that they would approve. I hope that people will consider them, and their other friends, for adoption.”
