In this Ad Council PSA for AdoptUSKids and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, a lad tells his mother he wants a cat, despite the fact that she’s allergic to felines. Mom is left with three choices, each of which is comically depicted: prepare yourself, make the best of it, or find a loophole. The spot ends by stating that there are no such things as perfect parents, but teens in foster care will love you just the same.

One of two spots directed by Scott Vincent of Hungry Man for agency KBS, “Cat” is part of an ongoing campaign targeting prospective parents who are considering adopting from foster care but who have not yet started the process. Talent was chosen from a comedic background, and selected specifically because they were unassuming and relatable. The central idea behind the campaign is that there is no one right answer when it comes to parenting, furthering the message that, “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent.”
