Perhaps we were being a little melodramatic, but if you are out and about around London in the coming weeks do keep your eyes peeled for a giant silver glamour puss prowling around. Monopoly have organised for a colossal kitty sculpture to stalk around town as a new cat-shaped play piece is set to replace the traditional iron token later this year.
Chosen through a month-long Facebook poll, the new feline beat a robot, helicopter and a guitar to the prime position (other retired Monopoly tokens include a lantern, a purse and a rocking horse).
The roaming Monopoly piece was last seen outside Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Incidentally, the scottie dog playing piece still remains the household favourite. Surely this calls for a dog vs cat scrap…? Time for kitty to get her claws out!
