US Embassy Apologizes For Sending Out Official Email With Photo Of Cat Dressed Like Cookie Monster





The U.S. embassy in Australia apologized on Monday for a “training error” after distributing a fake meeting invitation, complete with a photo of a pajama-clad cat dressed like the Cookie Monster, the BBC reported.

The email, titled “meeting”, featured a photo of a cat holding a plate of chocolate chip cookies, beneath the title “cat pyjama-jam.”

“Sorry to disappoint those of you who were hoping to attend this ‘cat pyjama-jam’ party, but such an event falls well outside our area of expertise,” U.S. mission to Australia spokesman Gavin Sundwall told the Australian Associated Press.



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

Sundwall said “strong new management controls” would be added to prevent a repeat of the mistake.

The U.S. Embassy in New Zealand as well its Ambassador Scott Brown joked about the cat email mix-up on Twitter Sunday.
