Earth-Moving Machines

In my book I wrote:

CAT logo

When I was little, I had a whole set of toy Caterpillar earth-moving machines. They’re called Cats, and I learned the names and functions of every one of them. If you want to see some, I put some photos on my website.

I absolutely, really planned to put a bunch of photos of real Caterpillar earth-moving machines on my website, but then my dad said I should write to the Caterpillar company for permission to use their official pictures. So that’s what I did. I sent a really nice (“Dear Caterpillar…) email.

Would you believe it? A lady from Caterpillar Inc. wrote back and said:


After reviewing this request, we do not wish to share our photos for the Cheese Mack series or website.

So I am going to a toy store as soon as I can, and I’m going to take my own pictures of Caterpillar toys, and then when I put MY OWN PHOTOS on MY OWN WEBSITE…too bad for them.

Big CAT meanies!

I tried to do the right thing, and I got squashed!

Has that ever happened to you? Tell me about it.

  1. My uncle makes models for CAT! He lives in Decatur. I don’t know how to spell Decatur though.
