Mews and Nips: Cat Boosts Ebay Sales


Tim Dombrowski’s cat Mercedes gives new meaning to the term “click bait.” When he started his business selling antiques on Ebay, Mercedes turned out to be an unexpected business partner. “As I took my pictures, Mercedes started wanting more attention and sitting next to my items, so I just started using her to pose,” Dombrowski told Forbes. “Then she started to stand up, really hamming it up good, and I started getting plenty of messages.” For more about how the adorable Mercedes is helping boost sales, visit

      I’m actually surprised that more humans haven’t figured out that cats are great sales assistants, Summer!
