Dear friends, cat lovers and citizens of the world,

WE DID IT!!!

Wow. Wow. WOW! After an absolutely incredible campaign, we've had an even more incredible few days and have just REACHED OUR TARGET!!!

We're so excited we can barely sit down long enough to write this message. But of course we wanted to let you, our wonderful backers, know before anyone else.

Thanks so, so much to all of you for pledging, tweeting, emailing and posting to get us here. The last week has been a massive team effort and YOU DID THIS. We could never have got here without you. 

You're the best team of cat loving, ad-busting, tranquility creating people ever. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

We now have a big job ahead of us to design your postcards, send out the T-Shirts etc. but just as importantly... to REPLACE ADVERTS WITH CATS! 

Next week we have a meeting with the company in charge of ads on the tube, to discuss where and when the takeover will happen!

In the meantime, we want you all to give yourselves a HUGE pat on the back and spend a little time celebrating this weekend. You are part of something really special here (we hope!).

Thank you for making this possible. We can't believe we've actually made it!  

With so much love,

A (very, very excited!) team Glimpse.

      Great news. This is going to be fab, thank you to the Glimpsers :) for all your hard work.

      Pawsitively thrilled for C.A.T.S., Glimpsers who worked so hard and to all the pledgers, thank you. Can we please keep up the dodgy feline (groovy) puns? Ok maybe not.... ;)

      YAY!!! So excited to see the finished result! I may have to visit the station myself! Hope it also raises awareness of homeless cats and some will find homes xxx

      Hooray!!! This is so brilliant. It would have been a CATastrophe if this had not happened. I am so pleased to be part of the Meow Movement. High fives to us cat ladies.

      @Val Woodhouse: in a high proportion of my backed projects and offhand I'm talking about 99% of funding in the final day/hours, I've never witnessed such a massive influx in the last day let alone the last couple of hours from what was a position that looked hopeless yesterday - my experience on KS says so! BTW, check out the stats on kicktraq: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1115177097/the-citizens-advertising-takeover-service-cats/#chart-daily

      Hopefully everyone's credit card gets charged as its has been the case where payments can't be taken and the overall amount gets reduced. Still, its 7 days for people to sort it and at least 2 weeks before the Glimpse team gets the money.

      Eeeeee, well done! How you managed to find £7k in 8 hours goodness knows but I'm thrilled the cat takeover can go ahead. Just a shame I won't be able to see it in person.

      SO happy for you guys, the last few days
      must have been a roller coaster!
