Do you think your cat has what it takes to be a superstar? Well then ASDA wants to hear from you.

For this year’s Christmas campaign, they’re looking for a cat that will be dubbed ‘Mr Grumbles’. Not only will they star in the advert, but merchandise (including cuddly toys!) will be available and look exactly like your pet.

Imagine getting your hands on toys that are made in the image of your little furry friend? Plus, the Instagram likes would come rolling in. I’m sold.

The ideal candidate will be able to go from “grumpy and sullen” to “jubilant and joyous” at the flick of switch, says the supermarket.


Auditions have already started, but you can still get involved by sharing a picture of your cat on social media.

Eilidh Macaskill, Vice President of Creative and Media at Asda, said: “We want to make this Christmas the most extra special Christmas yet, so we’re pulling-out all stops to ensure we bring a little magic to screens, with the help of Mr Grumbles.”

Nominations can be submitted by sending a picture to Asda on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #MrGrumbles.

Lots of people have already started sending their submissions in.
