New York Lotto "Bodega Cat" (2017) 1:00 (USA)

I have no idea why Cyrus the bodega cat is rewarding his owner with a scratch off lottery ticket after the owner has scolded him for being on the counter top but okay. At least it's a cute cat. Also anyone who owns a cat has already wont he lotto, albeit in a neurotic "I love you/Leave me alone," kind of way.

Nobody owns a cat. Cat have staff. You are cat staff.

I have seen this ad countless times and never get tired of it. Yes, I am a cat lover (all animals actually).....love, love, love this commercial.

What a wonderful heartwarming commercial. LOVE how he lifts his little paw to get the bus to stop. This is true entertainment!! Maybe the bodega owner can start bringing Cyrus home to curl up in front of a fire in that fireplace?

That's what I say Boondeets. Especially over the holidays!!!!!

I love love love the commercial, but why does the store owner leave his best bud in the store? Why doesn't he take him home for the holidays? Left him in the store all holiday long, tsk, tsk, tsk. Poor darling.

Because he's a Bodega cat. They keep the mice away! His job is to guard the store.

Is the cat real or animated I can’t tell ?

The cat is definitely real, but it looks like they used a little computer enhancement in a couple of shots, like when he "smiles" at the very end and possibly when he lifts his paw to hail the bus.

This is the best commercial that I have seen. Should receive a reward for being the best commercial. I have no idea how they trained that amazing cat (Cyrus) to do what he was able to do. Just saw this commercial in Fall 2022 in Canada. I realized that this was produced in 2017, no matter what it's a timeless commercial.
Thanks for producing such a great feel good commercial!
