A complaint about Links the Cat, the Office assistant

Raymond Chen

Some time ago, I shared some feedback submitted to the developer documentation team about the removal of the Office cat assistant. I turned it into a reminiscence about Earl the Cat, but let’s return to the most likely Office assistant cat: Links the Cat.

A bug was submitted about Links the Cat complaining that it was “licking itself suggestively”. I don’t know which specific animation the complaint was about, but maybe it was this one, where Links grooms its leg.

I don’t know long it took to investigate, but the bug was eventually resolved as “By Design” with the comment, “My cat does this.”

    I loved Links and Rover when I was younger. Perhaps, we’ll see a return to something like agents now that we have features like Copilot in Windows / Office.
