The cat quickly became a local celebrity, and attracted shoppers who just wanted to see the feline up close. Twitter users would say that the workers would chase the cat out, and then the cat would just return. The cat even got his own social media hashtag – #brockleycat. Most of the pictures featured the cat hanging on the shelves of the store.
Customers love the cat, who comes from the house next door. They post sightings on Facebook pages, and are always up for getting the cat a friendly pet. The unnamed feline appears to enjoy the attention, despite his sour face. “Everyone was stopping to give him a tickle,” one shopper reported on the local FB neighborhood page.
