Everything's better with cats. Take, for example, a boring square box. Now put a cat in it. See? Much better. Same goes with everything else. Which is why it comes as no surprise that they're the purrfect material for advertisement. They're beautiful and nice to look at, graceful and expressive, and they can subconsciously make you follow their every whim, which is great for sales.

These commercials are not necessarily about cats themselves. Sure, there are some obligatory cat food ads, but the list isn't only about that: sometimes they can convey a relatable, powerful, and simple-to-understand message without even moving a paw. That's the power of gracefulness that most cats have. There are also euphemisms like "fat cat" and "scaredy cat" that can be used as a snappy shortcut that anyone can connect with instantly.

So here you go, enjoy this comprehensive list of print cat ads. Fan of the ad side of the post? Bored Panda has more in these respective links: I, II, III, IV. Hate commercials, but love cats? Bored Panda has a whole cat-egory for beloved felines, so you can scroll there for days. In any case, share your thoughts in the comments below!

A number of cats like to play in water - Turkish Van, Maine Coon, Bengal, American Bobtail, Turkish Angora, and some others that I'm not thinking of at the moment.

But... is this selling something? Or just promoting a museum exhibition? Otherwise, it would be a good thing to sell to cat owners.

Imagine if we were pets for a superior being who cares about us, but only as long as we are not inconvenient to him. He would say that he loves us, but we would rarely see him or even understand his actions. Sometimes we would be punished for our natural behaviors. Whenever he neglects us, we would make excuses for him, thinking we owe him devotion for he is so much bigger and wiser and he always knows better.

I've always thought the term "fat cat" was unfair to cats. Wealthy assholes should be called something worse and more fitting...Like "trumps".
