Laugh now, but I feel sorry for whomever has to decipher the poor grammar on that cat's expense reports.

There are about a billion ads with this cat:
the cat's summer vacation
the cat gets ready for a big date
the cat goes to a hot spring
the cat's introduction
the cat gets a massage
the cat goes to a traditional hotel

etc. They're pretty cute!

Thank you, Artw, for the shining beacon of lulz on an otherwise cold and yucky day.

The worst part about the accident wasn't that Mr. Yamagochi was now in the body of the CEO's cat "Miffles", but that he was still required to attend meetings and presentations.

That was the best 13 seconds in the history of advertising.

The first few seconds made me think of "Up In The Air". Imagine that, the humiliation of getting fired by a cat.

Thank you so much for this, Artw. Often, we don't really realize what we have until it's gone, and it's good to have tender moments like these to help us reflect on the importance of our loved ones. I know that I, for one, will go back to my apartment tonight, pick up my cats, and tell them, "WHO WANTS TO GO ON A LITTLE BUSINESS TRIP. WHO IS A CAT BUSINESSMAN. YOU ARE! YOU ARE KITTY BUSINESSMEN! WHO'S GONNA MAKE THE STOCK GO UP. MEEP MEEP, YOU SO HUNGRY FOR FISH"

Yeah, these are ads for Jalan, a site where you can book hotels, rental cars, domestic flights and such in Japan.

Similarly, their spokes-cat's name is Nyalan (にゃらん) -- "nya" being the Japanese equivalent of "meow".

I am not the target demographic for these ads, but I would without a doubt be the target audience for a sitcom developed around Business Cat. Production and writing quality would not matter.

Well, The Whelk, have I got a website for YOU!

"CAT PRIN -- the tailor for a cat you know -- it is -- fact which will become dearer than former if a cat has clothes on

Don't you doubt? "Although I want to dress with dress extravagant with my cat, doesn't a cat dislike having" clothes on? "

It's like poetry.

The Jalan site features some rather surreal animations featuring this cat here and here. No idea what's going on here.

Um, Mr. Cuddlepants, uh, this is Roger down in Accounts Payable, yeah, it's about your expense report, yeah, see there's a couple of charges on here we're going to need you to explain before we can reimburse you for them. First off, there is this charge for "the Scratching Post" is that like a restaurant or something?... Oh, I see, um, well, were you doing something business related there?... Um, no sir lap dances are not expensable, um, can we move on?...

Looks like it's a cellphone game. You click the button underneath one side or the other and put in your friend's phone address, and it sends them something cute. Note the QR codes from this thread on each side -- if you have a QR-enabled phone, you can just scan them from the screen.

Those Japans words are really hard to read. I can't even tell if I'm looking at a B or a C or a F or what I'm looking at. It's like another alphabet all together.

Hey The Whelk, my cat Spike would disagree. Someone took this photo of him (that originally appeared on my knitblog) and posted it to ICHC: Won't you be my naybir?

(btw that is a teddy bear sweater he is wearing...he's awfully good-natured and didn't try to tear my face off or anything).

The sad thing is, Cat Businessman actually lost his job weeks ago, and is so ashamed he's just been pretending to go to work everyday, so he doesn't upset his family.

I like at 4s when he slides over the fish-shaped card you get the same sound effect that you get in samurai films when they full out a whopping great katana

"Yeah, Mr. Cuddlepants, this is Roger down in Accounts Payable again. I see on your January time sheet you have, under job code 457TW, 18 hours for, quote: 'LAYIN IN SUNZ ASLEEPIN' and 14 hours for 'NAPPIN ON HEETERZ'. That's for the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st when you were back in the office after the Osaka trip. We need some greater detail on that. If you could please outline those specific billable tasks during those periods, it would be appreciated. Thanks so much."

my old little cat (distinct from my new little cat and my old big cat) would jump almost any height to take treats out of my hand. I would hold them above shoulder height (about 5 ft) and she would leap up and tear the by god fingers right off my hand.
