I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their scanners, but I know why.

This is taking eponysterical to a new level.

(Also this is a fantastic idea.)

Next time I get a case of kitten fever, I'll just print me out a litter of kittens and place them about the house.

Once I had a cardboard cut-out of Bruce Willis and that's how I adopted the real Bruce Willis.

I'd be willing to compromise with my cat-loving partner and adopt the cut out cat.

Beardman, that reminds me of the cardboard cutout of Bob Vila I used to have in my mudroom in hopes that it would look like there was a man in the house if somebody peeked in.

Suddenly, the cardboard cutout of Ed Sheeran in my co worker's cubicle makes a lot more sense.

Underpants Monster, you need to get Bob Vila on a train track Home Alone-style.

Speaking of ersatz cats, for many years the brand Blue Q made a Flat Cat; it was a black-and-white cardboard cat standee with the eyes colorized in green, about 80% of life size. When my parents split up in the late 80s and our family cat stayed with my dad because said kitty was too old and infirm to be moved, we got one at my mom's house. We had Flat Cat for about a year there before we got a non-flat cat; our new kitty was smart enough to notice the resemblance right off and Flat Cat was the recipient of many vicious pawwhackings before we got the message and hid it away. FC is still around my house somewhere.

Flat Cat + Fat Cat = Cat Spat

Aw! This is such a good idea and I'm glad it's working so well.
