Yes, this is a cat and its digital copy in an HP computer.
The Morris Cat is the talisman of the cat food brand 9Lives, whose photographs were printed on the boxes, as well as filmed in a television advertisement. At the end of 1985, the company released a calendar for the next year, in which the cat was sitting at the computer, lying near the game console and posing against the background of the microwave.
On March 18, the calendar was remembered on Twitter – one of the users disassembled the footage and captions from the photos of the cat. For example, that people depend on their phones, and also that new technologies are not always worth trusting.
There’s also some (unintentional?) sociopolitical commentary, and fashion snark. pic.twitter.com/d6wCpQ21Pq— Marcin Wichary 💔 (@mwichary) March 18, 2019
The full version of the calendar is available in the Web Archive, but you can’t buy the printed version – all the games are over .
