An accidental cat picture got the U.S. Embassy in Australia to apologise

We’d never get you to say sorry for sending an adorable cat picture.

But the U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Australia has apologised on behalf of the Department of State who did just that, accidentally sending a test email featuring a photo of a cat dressed in a Cookie Monster costume.

According to the Australian Associated Press, the photo was was titled “cat pajama-jam” and was sent within an email titled “meeting,” as part of a fake meeting invitation sent by the Department of State to recipients.

It’s been described as a “training error,” and at least the U.S. Embassy saw the humour in it.

“Sorry to disappoint those of you who were hoping to attend this ‘cat pajama-jam’ party, but such an event falls well outside our area of expertise,” U.S. Mission to Australia public affairs counsellor Gavin Sundwall wrote in a subsequent email two days later.

“It was a training error made by one of our new staff testing out our email newsletter platform.” 

Perhaps they needn’t have apologised, ‘cos it’s a cute cat.

The cat appears to belong to a Melbourne woman, Jennifer Stewart, who dresses up her cats in onesies for her Instagram account that’s actually called @my_furry_babies.

Sundwall said “strong management controls” would be implemented to ensure such an incident wouldn’t happen again.

But let’s face it, don’t we all want to go to the cat pajama-jam party?
