In 1987, I worked as a sales representative for a Canon office products dealer. We received training on the Cat, but none of us ever got comfortable using it. Therefore, we didn''t try to sell it. Glad that some people got good use out of it.

The Canon cat was great. I just pulled mine out and it still works. I took it to Europe and had it working there too. There was a switch inside to change the voltage from 110 to 240. I wrote tons of good stories on this machine (when I had time to write for myself). The printer let me print resumes and story submissions with real letters, not dot matrix. The "leap" function was way ahead of its time...allowing you to jump to any word or letter combination in your doc. One bad thing was the disk formatting. If you weren''t careful, you could easily overwrite your disk with the few words you had on the screen. Love the cat. Still have it. In a world where the only competition was machines that let you edit and see three lines at a time, the cat was king!

Hey, I hope you will still be notified of this, but I have a Canon Cat and printer that are still in working condition. I just took them out of storage about a month ago. I was so surprised that it worked. I just posted a craigslist ad for it. (computers $ tech)

Shoot me an email if you (or anyone who reads this!) might be interested!

I have a Canon Cat, which I love. It's admittedly a dinosaur, but it's very easy to use, and very useful for some purposes. I'm wondering whether there might be a working model available somewhere, that i could buy. Mine won't last forever, and I'll be heartbroken when it gives up the ghost.
