Cat aerobics?

When I was walking home I came up behind this guy and couldn’t resist taking a photo. What do those words mean?

BTW, that’s Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House in the background.

    You have to be certified to wear the tee-shirt springs to mind.

        Wacky, wild eyed cat lady is a winner. Plus D. MacPherson toilet roll exerciser.

    It means he needed some money and thought of a great way to get paid for “hearding cats”.

    Probably just a personal joke for the guy. The shirt looks like an amateur design, like it might be from one of those online do-it-yourself t-shirt design places.

      Good point! That’s not an ideal tee shirt font type or size.

    If you play with your cats until they are tired, you feel like you have been in an aerobics/cardio class, yourself!

    I love the Robie House. I wonder if it has any cats?

      Doubtful. Nobody has lived there for 90 years & it’s been renovated at a glacial pace. It has been owned by the Chicago Theological Seminary since the mid-1920s & they were quite happy on a couple of occasions to push for it being knocked down for student housing! Saner, more sensitive opinons prevailed. FLW: “It proves that you cannot trust theologians with spiritual matters”

    Cats already do aerobics! They stretch after waking up and when laying out on the floor, increase flexibility by maneuvering their bodies into impossibly small spaces, and run up and down the hall for five to fifteen minutes a night.

    It is a way to spell “Certified CAT”.

    It’s an Edward Gorey souvenir t-shirt, and makes more sense if you see the front side, which displays various kitty aerobic exercises as illustrated by the great cartoonist…
