Because George loved cats, he was accused of sexual harassment. How come?

George - H/A/M?
Sexual harassment of women? children? men?
Was he accused of one incident of sexual harassment? more than one? By a woman? by a child? by a man? By the one who thought he/she was being harassed?

Did George want to pet/pick up a cat and touch someone instead? (Reminds of an episode of the Simpsons where Homer sees a piece of candy stuck to the babysitter's backside, reaches for it and is then accused of sexual harassment.}

Hey, the Simpsons are high-class intellectual TV too! (:

Was a cat present during the incident? Were there any witnesses? Was the person who accused him a witness?
Was the harassment verbal? physical?

Is his relationship with the "victim" relevant? If so - friends? family? co-workers? strangers?
Anything else about the "victim" relevant? If so, age? profession? religion? ethnicity? physical appearance? name?

I just looked up Four Weddings, and wow, another high-class intellectual show German TV is still waiting for!

Is the woman considerably younger than George? Considerably older?
Is he her supervisor? The other way round?
Was there one witness? 2-10? more than 10?
Was George talking about cats? His cats? Is a specific word relevant?

Did it happen at work? Is their working environment relevant? If so, is it an office? Did they talk face to face? on the phone?

Was George talking about a specific cat? Cats in general? Domestic cats? Stray cats? Big cats? Keeping cats as pets? Cat food? Breeding cats?

The witness thought George was harassing a woman, right? Did the woman think so too?
Did the witness mishear a word? misunderstand a word? Did the witness eavesdrop?

Hm, neither face to face nor on the phone, right? Is George present when the witness thinks the woman is being harassed? Is the woman present? Can we call the woman Lucy and the witness Max?

Is the kind of office relevant? Open-plan office? With cubicles? an individual office? Is it the office George usually works in? Lucy? Max?

Is some kind of written communication involved? Does John leave a message for Lucy? Send her an e-mail? a fax? a letter?
If any of these, did Max read it?

Is the cat in questions Lucy's? Max's?
Is any of the following relevant about the cat: name? sex (if so, m? f?)? age? whom it belongs to? physical appearance? character traits? habits? Is the cat alive?

"What if I said no?" - I would make up new names until I find some you accept!

Has George sent the e-mail yet? Does Max read the e-mail before Lucy does? Does Max know that it's about Lucy's cat?

Had Lucy asked George a question about her cat? Whether he could take care of it when she's on holiday?

Is the cat's name the word that makes Max think Lucy is being harassed? Did Max mistake the cat's name for a harassive word? Physical appearance - size? weight? fur colour? fur pattern? facial features?

Did he call his cat a queen, or otherwise refer to her in such a way that it seemed he was talking about a prostitute (for example, the term "cathouse")?

Could this puzzle be reworked to be about dogs?

Does the cat's name, with the other word in front of it, actually make a slang term for breasts? or did it just sound like it could be one?

but what could be as wonderful as CATS?
Then you might like this (not Highdeas I mean, but the cat-personification):
http://highdeas.com/hd/Dogs_V_Cats

Does the cat's name, with the other word in front of it, actually make a slang term for breasts? noor did it just sound like it could be one? yesish, but remember, this us an email so sound is not really the issue

"No, I said 'yope' for size not for CAT's size" - But I meant the cat's size because my question was related to your "yes" to "Is the cat's physical appearance relevant?" - Sorry for the confusion.

So, is the size of something else relevant? Of Lucy's breasts?

Wait, he was writing an e-mail to her CAT?
As in "Dear Sugar [cat name]"??
Just to clarify, he put "Sugar" in front of the cat's name?
Even though it's not part of the cat's name?

Was he refering to the cat as her "Dear X"?

So, the cat's name -
Is it gender specific?

I sure hope that's a joke, because many of my cat-loving friends & I address our emails to one another's cats, just for fun. Are we really bound for the loony bin? Or should psychologically-minded types lighten up?(This puzzle is not based an a real incident, but the name of a real cat is involved.)

Do you seriously send work e-mails from your work account to each other using cat names? Because if so - yeah, that's sort of crazy and really unprofessional. Then again, standards vary from industry to industry and I did spend 4 years over in education/academia and actually..I can totally see this happening.
The cat's name is an adjective, yes?
That also has some relationship to a word for breasts?

does the word yopishly have something to do with breasts because it is an adjective which could be used to describe anything with similar qualities?

or is it a word which actually has two different meanings?

or maybe the problem was that the person who saw it had a dirty mind and that's why they leapt to conclusions because it's quite an innocent word?

did we establish that the email began "Dear blank"? could this not have been misinterpreted in a memo or a letter?

Is the cat's name slightly unusual as a name for a cat? this adjective can also be applied to humans? both male and female? would someone feel insulted to be described in this way?

did we establish that the email began "Dear blank"? yes could this not have been misinterpreted in a memo or a letter? The accuser realized that 'Dear blank' was the salutation of a letter

Is the cat's name slightly unusual as a name for a cat? yes this adjective can also be applied to humans? yes both male and female? yeswould someone feel insulted to be described in this way? irrel!!!!!!!!! (That's VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!

To clarify: the e-mail was sent to Lucy, right? Not to Max? Or to Lucy's cat? Did the salutation say "Dear [cat name]'s owner" or something like that? Or "Dear Lucy"? Did it reference the cat's name in any way?

Ok, let me rephrase... Did he begin the email "Dear [cat's name]?" "Dear [cat's name]'s owner?" Did the "Dear [blank]" include the name of the cat in any way? Did he use an email/internet abbreviation (like "u" instead of "you", "r" instead of "are" or "lol", "omg" etc.)? Or along those lines did he use "ur" to mean "your" as in the possessive but it was taken by the accuser to mean "you're" as in "you are"? The other way around?

Could this have happened if he wrote her a letter instead of emailing her? Would it have been theoretically possible but less likely (such as if abbreviations are relevant; he likely wouldn't have said "ur" in a letter but he could have)?

If Redwine's question about adding one more letter to the name is correct, did he change a single letter to a double letter? (Like Bob to Boob)? Or did he transpose two letters (I didn't see Redwine asking that)? As in Bobo to Boob/

Is the cat's name an English word that is found in the dictionary as an adjective?

Does the cat's name end in a "Y"? Was the first letter of the cat's name one of the letters that was transposed?

Is it a male cat?

Is it a cuddly cat? (Not strictly relevant, I'm sure, but I still want to know.)

Does the cat's name end in a "Y"? yesWas the first letter of the cat's name one of the letters that was transposed? noish

Is it a male cat? no but irrel

Is it a cuddly cat? (Not strictly relevant, I'm sure, but I still want to know.) It's a very cuddly cat, and this important fact is relevant to everything but no more relevant to this puzzle than to anything else.By the way, if you want to see a spectacularly cuddly cat, check out the picture on my registration page.

Was the word he accidentally typed some declension or adjectivization of (and I must admit I giggled a few times typing these out):

Boob
Tit
Knocker
Hooter
Nipple
Jug
Bosom
Melon
Can
Breast
or Mammary?

Am I on the right track? If it's none of these, are you British/Australian/Canadian and using slang I'm not familiar with? (This seems possible since I have never heard of the custom of addressing correspondence to the recipient's pet...)

Is it cheating to ask, does it start with an A? B? C? ... Z?

Your cat looks pretty cuddly but (I know all cat owners say this but in my case it's actually true) my cat is the cutest!

Are you sure the letters were transposed (e.g. xy -> xy)? yes--see above Were the letters actually substituted (e.g. gg --> tt)? no--see above

Did he address the letter "Dear Titty"? yes Was the cat's name Tiggy? no


******* SPOILER ***********
George & Lucy are co-workers & cat lovers who address each other by their cats' names--a perfectly acceptable & non-crazy thing to do in their workplace, which is informal enough to allow nicknames. Unfortunately, George once typed "Titly" by mistake on an email to Lucy & self-righteous Max saw it & accused George of sexual harassment. (The puzzle is ficticious, but I used to have a co-worker with a cat named 'Tilty" & we called each other by cat names. Once I actually mistyped 'Titly' but I caught the typo before sending the email. Even if I hadn't, it's very unlikely that there would have been fallout. The recipient would have realized it was a typo & no one else would be likely to see the email at all. Please see my new puzzle you know where.)

Follow-up question... how does "Tilty" refer to the cat's appearance?

By the way, of course a typo can cause this sort of problem even if cat names (or other nicknames) are not involved. Suppose you're sending an email to your colleague Ms. Fuchs, but. . . .
