New York Lottery Shows An Adorable And Determined Bodega Cat

One of the best parts about life in NYC are the bodegas, which are often home to cats, employed partly for their friendliness and partly for their vermin killing. In this charming spot from the New York Lottery, we see a bodega cat, Cyrus, who tracks down his store’s owner at home after closing and gives him an unexpected Christmas present while he sleeps. Cyrus even takes the bus and climbs down the chimney like Santa Claus…adorable. The song is a cover of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)”, performed by Julia Stone.
