Cookie Monster Cat Stars in Error Email That Goes Vial

United States officials in Australia have blamed a training error for a meeting invitation containing

The message also included words in Latin and an RSVP button for the "jam".

The US Embassy in Canberra has apologized for a State Department email invitation to a "cat pyjama-jam", complete with a photo of a feline dressed in Cookie Monster pyjamas.

The email, titled "meeting", featured a photo of a tabby cat wearing a blue Cookie Monster outfit and holding a plate of choc-chip biscuits, beneath the title "cat pajama-jam".

Sundway attributed the fake invite to a "training error" from a new staff member testing out the newsletter platform.

According to the AAP, U.S. Mission to Australia public affairs counsellor Gavin Sundwall issued an apology saying there was no planned pajama party.

Due to a "training error", the American embassy in Australia accidentally extended an invitation via e-mail to a cat pajama party to an unknown number of people last week, according to the Australian Associated Press.

One day you think you're invited to a wonderful party filled with cookies and cats in sleepwear, but the next day, you're out.

The spokesperson said "strong new management controls" would be implemented to prevent any repeat mistakes.

The US Embassy in New Zealand joined in on the fun on Twitter, replying, "We are actually LOLing here in NZ" with a gif of a cat frantically typing on a keyboard.

The US has been without an ambassador to Australia for two years - the longest gap since World War Two.
