Bag the cat? Scratches may be least of worries

1) Buy some hamburgers, 2) Place your cat in the empty bag then upload the video to YouTube, 3) Profit??
The operators of their drive-thru restraunts are asking their patrons to wrap their cats in one of their To -Go bags that they are providing as part of a new marketing campaign.
The bags being given out are fashioned after a basketball jersey, with a No. 15, a mock gold dollar-sign necklace and slots to cut out for the legs and tail of the cat. The head would stick out of the bag's opening.
The bags come with instructions to encourage customers to submit pictures or videos VIA their cat "keeping it real" promotional Web site.
The bag also reads that not all cats will be down with wearing this bag. Do not harm or endanger any cat.
People who participate in this campaign should know that by law: forcing a cat into a paper bag could be considered "torment," meaning it could open people to a felony animal cruelty charge.
"When our Rap Cat commercials began airing last fall, they were an overnight success," said Richard Turer, senior vice president of marketing. "We received dozens of letters from our guests requesting Rap Cat merchandise. Our new Rap Cat Web site, cups and carry-out bags are all in response to Rap Cat's popularity and are intended only as a creative extension of our television campaign."
