Default Social Ramifications of Signing My Cat up for a Tennis Tournament?

So there's this brother-brother doubles tournament every year at a local tennis club... Last year I played with my older bro, but now that he's in college I don't have anyone to play with. So I was thinking about signing my cat, Buttons, up as my doubles partner and then showing up with him in some specialized cat tennis attire. Would opponents find this funny or insulting? How would the tournament organizer react? Is it worth pulling off such a prank, knowing it would be a solid waste of 32 U.S. dollars?

Warm regards,

-Freaky

I think it'd be too much, bro. I mean, you can't play the match.

If you had a chimp trained to hold a racquet, now that would be funny as hell.

We could, technically, play the match. We would just succumb on Buttons' return points and service games. I, on the contrary, could hold my serve. At best it would be a 2-6 2-6 loss, which is a pretty typical scoreline if you ask me. Do you know how cute it would be to dress Buttons up in tennis attire?

Not sure about 2-6, 2-6. I see Buttons foot faulting all over the place.

It doesn't specify that it can't be mixed species, but it doesn't explicitly say it either. Buttons would double bagel dogs He needs to face humans for better competition.

Is your cat as talented as the cat that threw a pitch at a minor league baseball game recently?

Maybe I oversold the cat's talent as it seems her owner did most of the pitching

Longer youtube videos are online if you type "cat throws first pitch": into google.

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

You have to be brothers, which is why Buttons is my only option at this point.

Paw faulting than.

Plus, you would need to accommodate the tennis court with a litter box.
