The cat’s whiskers

The AGA cookers have always been a synonym of warm welcome home. Similarly there is the saying ‘a house without a cat is just a house’. Both the cat and the AGA create this cosy and intimate atmosphere where you can truly feel at ease, a place you can feel yours which pampers you with warmth and love. The gentle radiant heat of the AGA has been like a magnet for generations of cats and cat-lovers.

At the launch of the AGA City60 I had the pleasure to meet the lovely Sara Medio, Masterchef finalist 2011 and an AGA inheritor. She spoke with delight about her cast iron cooker and expressed her opinion that as a cat-owner herself she associates the feeling of home with those two – a cat and an AGA.

So, it comes as no surprise that in the 1950s cats enter the advertising imagery of the AGA cooker. And they are here to stay cuddled by and enjoying the gentle heat in the coldest of days.

Have a look at some of the images stored in our archives:


Talking about cats and associations, here is an interesting fact:

* In Ancient Rome the cat was sacred to Diana, the moon goddess. The cat was also considered a guardian of homes and a symbol of domestic goodness. *

I couldn’t agree more.¬† Meanwhile I am putting together a board on Pinterest called ‘Pets love AGA‘. Feel free to share your image.

I have also had a go myself at creating an AGA Christmas card (please, don’t judge too harsh):


I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.
Jean Cocteau  (writer, designer, playwright artist and filmmaker)

I take care of my flowers and my cats. And enjoy food. And that’s living.
Ursula Andress (actress)
