The U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Australia recently apologized after sending out a test email featuring a picture of a cat in a cookie monster costume. The email was titled “meeting” and the photo was called “cat-pijama-jam.”
The Australian Associated Press reports that the embassy sent out an apology email explaining that a new staff member committed a “training error” when they were testing out a newsletter software. “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,” said public affairs counselor Gavin Sundwall.

The embassy said that strong new management control measures would be taken in order to prevent another event like this from occurring.
The image of the cat in question belongs to Jennifer Stewart. She has an Instagram with over 67 thousand followers where she takes pictures of her cats wearing different outfits and doing different things.
A couple of hours ago, Stewart uploaded an image of her cat wearing the Cookie Monster onesie and holding up an iPad where you can see the headline of the US embassy story.
