Adorable Cats “Hired” at Pizza Hut in Japan

New Pizza Hut ad campaign in Japan shows what would happen if cats worked at a Pizza Hut

It’s so sad that this is an ad campaign because we’d totally eat at a cat pizzeria.

Taking it one step further than a cat café, Japan continues to indulge its cat obsession with the introduction of the Pizza Hut run entirely by felines. Pizza toppings at this location include tuna fish, Fancy Feast, and hairballs. Unfortunately, unlike the cat cafés, you won’t actually be able to find the Pizza Hut run by cats; it’s all part of a clever and cute ad campaign for Pizza Hut Japan. But one can dream.


The fictional pizzeria is called “Pizza Cat!” and even has its own website featuring the antics (and poor business skills) of Tencho, Hime, Dora, and Detch. The videos promoting the Pizza Hut felines feature the cats ignoring phone calls, napping through alarms, struggling to get into their adorable little Pizza Hut uniforms, and failing to figure out how to work a cash register.

The website for Pizza Cat! warns that if you don’t get your pizza in time, it’s because “the cats lost their motivation, please excuse them.” As if we could stay mad at those tiny, furry faces.
