'Cat Banksy' targets Kentish Express office in Ashford's Park Mall

A KentOnline office has been targeted by a mysterious artist placing cat stickers across the county.

The new tag appeared on a door of the Kentish Express in Ashford - just hours after an article was published about the feline phenomenon.

Black cats have popped up across the county, often on entrance signs to villages and towns - including Sittingbourne and Fordwich.

They are also used to mark hospitals like the Kent and Canterbury and businesses such as Ramsgate's Royal Victoria Pavilion Wetherspoons.

Not confined to Kent, the miniature moggies have been spotted as far away as Rye and Bexley.

Ashford and its surrounding areas are becoming a hotbed for the unknown artist's activity, with one at the William Harvey Hospital, one near Wye and another on the Orbital Park industrial estate.

The sticker adorning the KM office in Park Mall is unique among the known sightings, in that it is larger and features green eyes.

The reason for their installation is unknown and the stickers are available on Amazon, making identification of the 'cat Banksy' even more difficult.

Most fingers pointed towards Whitstable street artist Catman, however he has denied his involvement.
