Cats have taken over one of London's busy Tube stations as part of a campaign to take away the anxiety of the bombardment of advertising and to help re-home felines.

The Clapham Common station has been plastered with images of cats of all shapes and sizes by a group calling itself the Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) for the next two weeks.

While it may have appeared quickly, the logistics and permission took the group six months.

CATS had started a Kickstarter campaign, saying it wanted the cat-covered commuter corridor for a number of reasons.

"Wouldn't it be great not to worry about the holiday we can't afford, the car we don't need, or the body we don't have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel pawsitive."

It asked for £20,000 (NZ$36,000) to cover a small station, with more money meaning they could plaster a bigger one.

The group teamed up with the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and Cats Protection, with the images showing real stray cats up for adoption.
