These mustached Canadians decided to treat older shelter cats like used cars.
Because in a world where around 8 million pets enter shelters and only around 4 million get out, that's a lot of sad math.
You name it; we got it.
All makes and models of cats.
An escape attempt?
In an attempt to stop that sad math, the kind folks from the Calgary Humane Society got creative.

The fastest domestic cat running speed appears to be 29.8 mph. This salesman knows his product!

Felines at the Human Society ready to go.

Get yourself a pre-owned kitty.
They pulled out all the stops to help future cat owners realize that pre-owned cats are the way to go!

Kittens are popular. There's no way around it. They're kittens! I used to be kitten-crazy (I was a child!), but I've adopted older cats and so have my friends. They're special. They're cute. They're soulful. And instead of adorably biting your fingers until they grow up past kittenhood, older cats chill out on your couch and teach you about relaxing.

We missed the Big Sale Saturday (but let's be real, pre-owned cats are always priced to go), but the love for pre-owned cats continues. And this commercial, well ... it's timeless.
