My simple version of the cowsay program, but with a cat. You can run using the command line pipe or the default input, just like this:

fortune | catsay # With pipe
catsay "Hello, I'm a cat!" # default cli input

You can install it directly using crates.io by running the commands below:

cargo install catsay-rs

or, install from source code by running:

git clone https://github.com/dreisss/catsay.git
cd catsay
cargo install

And verify if everything is ok by running the command:

catsay -v

    Help command to the program. Using:
