Catty Christmas! Fortnum's Christmas Windows Will Have You Feline Festive

Cats take centre stage in Fortnum & Mason's Christmas windows this year, which have now been unveiled.

The feline characters are dressed in the traditional Fortnum red coats, in a nod to artist Edward Bawden's 1950s Christmas illustrations.

This time though, the cats offer an insight into life behind the scenes at the world-famous department store. The 'cat-alogue' (see what they did there?) is shown in eight festive displays, spread across the Piccadilly windows

See pipes, cogs, machinery and dials at work, operated by the cats, in a depiction of festive preparations at Fortnum. Each display tells a fictional story of the creation of products including those famous hampers, mince pies and yule logs.
