CAT MASSAGE UPDATE

Some people have asked us where we found "Your Cat Wants a Massage!" and one of those people just happened to be Maryjean Ballner, the loving-genius who created this masterpiece in 1998.



Maryjean contacted EIT recently to let us know that she saw our little mash-up on television... and that she is a big fan of our work! "It's hilarious!" she said. "Bang-up job"

Maryjean liked our compilation so much, she is even sending us a copy of her follow-up video, "Dog Massage", so we can make a sequel.

As you know, we don't get celebrity endorsements often, so when we do, we don't take them lightly. Especially when they come from a copyright-holder with a sense of humor and a heart of gold. We love you Maryjean!

Please visit Maryjean's site www.catmassage.com to buy the full-length version of Cat Massage (you can even get it dubbed in German) and many other wonderful products.

And for those of you living under a rock: here's the post that started this beautiful relationship.

The cat in that video looks exactly my cat. That's probably the only reason I sat through the whole thing.

Thank god. Mary Jean isn't an idiot like all the record labels/ movie companies. She knows she's more likely to sell more copies with exposure than by sending a cease and desist.

This is great! Her videos are like a vacation for the VCR, and ourselves.

It's refreshing see that she has a sense of humor, as well as being a top-notch cat masseur!

Nice lady. Can I get a massage, please?

I actually felt a little bad about laughing at the Cat Massage clips because you can tell from watching it that the lady is sweet and wonderful and genuinely loves her cat. There is absolutely no cynicism in the video at all. What a great person.

I'm so glad she was able to take the video in a good way. Props to you Mary jane!

It's great to know that she has a sense of humor and enjoyed it and wasn't like those OTHER people that make you take down videos. I like ya even more, Mary Jean!

ps. I have actually given my friends cat a massage, just because of the video. It works!
