Bank offers free cat with mortgage

The bank is offering customers a choice of ten cats which can be selected online dependent on which breed they would like to grace their home.

According to the TJournal website the cat will be delivered in time for their housewarming party in one of the banks fleet of cat branded vans.

However customers are advised not to get too attached to their new feline as they are only on loan for the moving in period.

Terms of the offer say the cats are only given so as they can cross the threshold of a new property- a traditional sign of good luck in Russia.

Owners also get the cat for an additional two hours to take photos of the feline in their new homes.
