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,

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?

Buttons would have a solid chance against groove man

I say go for it :)
That's the attitude I was looking for :yeah:
Is it a mixed species tennis competition? Is Buttons ready to play against dogs?
It doesn't specify that it can't be mixed species, but it doesn't explicitly say it either. Buttons would double bagel dogs :rolleyes: He needs to face humans for better competition.
Not sure about 2-6, 2-6. I see Buttons foot faulting all over the place.
Buttons can't foot fault, that's the thing! He has paws ;)

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

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

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

And I'll show up as your doubles partner in cat ears.

Did the cat actually do anything? :unsure:

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.
I think Buttons can hold it for a match. However, I would bring a little dish for his water and food.

Not unless they DNA test at this event. Have you checked?
No DNA testing, but you have to at least look alike to really sell it. Luckily, I have very cat-like facial features.

I reckon Buttons would beat Johnny Groove in three.
