I don't believe that you have the cats. You've never showed us a photo.

Are you saying that it was them who posted your photos all-over the internet?
Show me their photos. Pretty please!

So I won't see them in my lifetime :-(
Mean a*holes :-/
Can I bribe you with my raw vegan candies? (I can post them to your office - too scared to deliver them in person in the stranger's territory.)

Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land" is a really good book, if you haven't read it yet. Teaches grokking and luv (to cats and all) :-)

Something summoned me to the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition at the British Library today. It's worth seeing - it debunks the Viking propaganda about their peaceful conquer and enriching the culture of British Isles.
But on my way out something made me turn back... and I saw a big poster with a cat - there was an exhibition about cats in literature!

The Meow Factor - An Investigation of Cat Content in Today's Media

"According to Benton (2013), catvertising increases brand awareness and gives the example of the dairy company Cravendale, whose brand awareness went up by 10 per cent and sales increased by 8 per cent after an ad aired featuring cats. Among other companies using cats in advertising are Ikea (Sweney, 2015), Skittles (Cox, 2014), Walmart, Samsung, Kia (Edwards, 2011), O², Bouygues Telecom, Sainsbury's, and Novartis (Podhovnik, 2016). These examples do not include cat food and cat litter advertisements because the use of cats in those advertisements is an obvious choice."

Hmm, there's a plan!

I know the funny cat video meme is a bit overused, but here are 15 samples - generally hilarious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOyaP4Kr8R8.

A debit card that meows

"Miaowing is the perfect form of communication - it’s short, sharp but not intrusive, and alerts us to a cat’s needs immediately. Less jarring than a dog’s bark, but loud and direct enough to do the job, a miaow is the perfect sound for business owners looking to emulate a cat’s communication skills."

OMG... Imagine how I'm taking out the card from my Stella McCartney cat bag and paying for my regular filter coffee at The Black Sheep! Ba-a-a!
