Matt's 'just a man'! Viewers send hilarious notes to Savannah's leaked email

The cat's out of the bag, all right!

In a segment on Thursday called "Cat's Out of the Bag," (a rather appropriate title) the anchors chatted about a recent study claiming that people who prefer dogs over cats are generally happier. But the discussion took a surprising turn when Matt let another cat out of the bag: Savannah's email address.

During the discussion, Savannah suggested Matt be prepared for the tweets he was going to receive from cat lovers on social media and alluded to his Twitter handle, @MLauer.

Matt, paused to think twice about his next move, grinned widely and upped the ante. "It's... (Savannah's email address)," he called out on-air, sharing his co-host's direct contact, though he claims he only meant to share her Twitter handle.

But don't worry! Shortly after, Savannah tweeted to let viewers know that there was actually a "silver lining" to the whole ordeal — because Matt's act led to many sweet notes from TODAY fans.

Here are a few of the great emails she received. A few lucky people even got a response from Savannah herself! (Note: As wonderful as these are, the fun is over. Savannah has a new email address!)

8. Or is Matt fooling us all?

You're my favorite news personality. I always look forward to watching you every morning. Don't be mad at Matt — he's not very tech savvy.

Your fan,

Jerry

9. Subject: 'She's so yellow'

The first words I heard this morning were my wife saying, "she's so yellow". Love your sun-yellow dress!

You and Carson are our favorites because you seem so genuine. The laugh is on Matt... You'll get lots of love mail! Here's a goofy pic of our puppy to brighten your already sunny day.
