In what might be the most adorable mistake ever by a government worker, a staffer at the U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Australia, accidentally invited people to a “meeting” by emailing a photo of a tabby cat wearing pajamas.
The email was sent in a “training error,” U.S. Mission to Australia Public Affairs Counselor Gavin Sundwall said in a follow-up apology email.
“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,” he wrote two days after the original email went out. “It was a training error made by one of our new staff testing out our email newsletter platform.”
The original email also included an option for Latin recipients to RSVP to the fake meeting.
