Shelter cat commercial

June 18, 2012

An open letter to the gray-blue cat:

Dear gray-blue cat,

Thank you for figuring out halfway through the commercial that you shouldn’t just repeat everything the pink cat says. Better to be a first-rate version of yourself than a second-rate version of some other cat, especially in this scenario; imitation is not the best strategy for getting picked. Maybe try doing that headstand for an entire day? At the very least, the rush of blood to your brain will give you a free buzz. It’s nothing compared to catnip, I know, but it will do until pink gets that new shipment in next week.



I’m glad shelters started animating their commercials, because showing real abandoned, neglected and abused animals only makes viewers uncomfortable to the point of changing the channel. Those animals always look so sad, broken even. Better to emphasize the happy adoption than the depressing prologue if you’re looking to persuade the audience.
