Vintage tea towel featuring Arthur the Kattomeat cat..
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.
78cm x 49cm

Great gift for a white cat owner.
