Cat Bag ControversyCat Bag Controversy
Not all cats are down with cat bags
February 21, 2007
1:30 PM -- The AP reports on animal control authorities that may literally be letting the cat out of the bag:
Animal control authorities are not amused by a fast food chain's marketing stunt encouraging customers to dress their cats in a special take out bag.
Umm, sure, that's not amusing at all.
Tampa-based Checkers Drive-in Restaurants Inc. is distributing "Rapcat" bags designed with cutaway areas for the cat's legs and tail. The cat's head sticks out the opening of the bag, which is designed to look like to [sic] a basketball jersey and gold chain worn by the hip-hop Rapcat puppet in Checkers commercials.
Cats today... always trying to copy something they see on TV.
A Hillsborough County Animal Services news release on Monday said forcing a real, unwilling cat into a "Rapcat" bag could be considered felony animal cruelty. The bag's warning — "not all cats will be down with wearing this bag. Do not harm or endanger any cat" — is not enough, the agency said.
Presumably, only the dopest of cats will be down with wearing the bag.
