Vintage tea towel featuring Arthur the Kattomeat cat.. with assorted kittens.

Between 1966 and 1975 in the UK, a white cat named Arthur was hired by the pet-food company, Spillers.

Arthur’s particular skill was that he could scoop food out of a tin with his paw, leading to his appearance in more than 300 TV commercials for the Kattomeat brand of cat food.

His career blossomed, with his picture appearing on T-shirts, tea towels and in various advertising campaigns.

Sadly, Arthur died in February 1976, just before his 17th birthday.

One of three tea towels featuring Arthur from the early 1970s.

Unused – still feels crisp and has its original creasing, in great vintage condition.

Rare to find in unused condition after nearly fifty years.

Starched from new.

Clean and bright.

68cm x 50cm

Perfect to frame.

Great gift for a white cat owner.
