Beloved West Aussie icon, Fat Cat, is hitting the road and travelling to all Coles supermarkets in the state to support a
cause close to his heart.
Little shoppers and their families from all corners of WA can now support Telethon during their regular grocery shop just by
purchasing a Fat Cat doll at their local Coles supermarket.
Coles will be stocking the dolls in all 96 supermarkets across the state from Sunday, with sales going towards much-needed
funding for sick kids in WA.
To celebrate this new adventure, Fat Cat himself has decided to share a bit about his history and reveal his real name —
Francis Aloysius Tom Cat – a fact that many Western Australians might have never heard before.
The eternal seven-year-old Fat Cat was born on the 7th of July during the early 70s, right here in Perth. He and his best
friend, Percy Penguin, began their journey to fame by starring in kids’ TV shows, ‘Earlybirds’ and ‘Fat Cat’s Funtime Show’.
He now spends his time saying goodnight to West Aussie kids at 7:30pm every evening on Channel 7.
The Fat Cat dolls will be available for $19.95, while stocks last, at all WA Coles supermarkets from October 11, with 100 per
cent of proceeds going directly to Telethon.
