Mancat Monday Not

This would normally be Mancat Monday, but we discussed a comment

"Patzys Place has left a new comment on your post "Caturday Saturday": They could be more creative. Fans could post pictures of their cats up on the billboard / big screen for everyone to enjoy! Or post pictures of cats who need homes at the local shelter. Or both cats in the shelter plus ones who have found happy homes too!"

with Dad to see iffen he had anny ideas.  He did.  He searched the Washington National's baseball website looking for  a marketing email.  Well, no luck there.  But he did find a general snail mail address.


REALLY!  He said how that was a really great idea and they should consider it and how cats were so VERY photogenic.  And he added a few pics to prove it.

Subject:  Marketing

I am a member of the cat-blogging community.  Don’t worry, this isn’t a complaint.  We enjoyed your recent promotion involving the Cat-urday t-shirts.  Cats don’t get a lot of respect and we appreciated the idea.

We understand that Cats In The Park wouldn’t really work well .  I blogged about that.  And one of my readers had a really interesting suggestion.

In return for not having Cats In The Park what about inviting  fans to send pictures of their cats to be shown randomly on the display board?  You pick a dozen or more and just show them when opportunities rise. 

Cats are very photogenic.   Not that I mean you would use mine, but just look at these 2 as examples…


I hope you will consider it.  We don’t care about credit…

-->as examples.  If you keep trying you can get most anything anywhereeventually, MOL!

  3. That would be AWESOME if you got a response!

  4. Oh, well done Patzy and TBT. I think it's a wonderful alternative to taking cats to the actual park and is likely to be a real hit with cat lovers. Fingers/paws crossed that they adopt it. Please let us know if you hear back from them.

  10. I hope very much that you get a response and I am certain you will tell us about it. This is a well written letter and will get read I feel certain. Thank you for trying. I am grateful.

  11. Great idea and kudos to Patzy for suggesting it and you for following up on it ! It would be a great way to feature kitties without the hassle and danger of bringing them to the park !
    And if the Nats do it, it will probably start a wave around MLB !

  12. We totally love that idea!!!

  13. I LOVE that idea! It would sure make games more interesting for me.

  14. ooh, better than writing your congressman!

  16. Now that would be fun! And maybe the way to get to a kitty lover's herat to bring home a kitty that needs a forever home.
    A great idea that we hope will come to fruition:)


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
