Want to date the cat?

apparently some men do. Sure, our cat is quite attractive, but she is still a cat.
We placed an ad on a personals site to see if anyone out there would want to date our cat. So far we have got TWO responses, both of which are displayed below.

Interesting Kissing Booth ad & picture. I have neither an ad nor a picture posted (yet), but I will describe myself for you a little...hopefully enough to prompt a response (in which case I can email you a picture).

So....I am 28 years old, and live in Manhattan, where I was born and raised. I am a white jewish but not religious male, 5'7'', 200 lbs, brown hair, and green eyes...athletic and pretty cute (someone told me once). :)

Anyway, for the past 4 months I've been working for an Internet startup called I really love the job, but it seems to occupy too much of time and emotional energy. Maybe that is why I lurk about a site like this and come across your ad.

Alright, I've babbled enough for the moment. I hope to hear from you!

Bye for now,

the next one is a little hard to believe
after all the attention Mahir, the "I KISS YOU!!!" guy got.
But, I swear I got this in May 1999.

I actually wrote him back...

Dear Richard,

Thank you for responding to our ad. we were so excited, but I hope you realize that the girl is a.... cat.

we have read your description to her, but she (unfortunately) did not seem too interested. she just stared at the wall. do you have a wool sweater? she likes those.

so, i'm sorry that we will not be able to make a "love connection", but i wish you luck!
