Breaking News! Cat Desperate for Internet Fame and Desire for a Picture of Himself to go Viral Declares Hunger Strike Until it Happens!
With the onset of rising household name cat stardom and popularity as a result of the Internet, Kizmet the Kitten is no longer satisfied with the paltry couple dozen likes or so each of his pictures generates on facebook and attempts to become the next Keyboard, Grumpy, or Nyan Cat by going on a hunger strike until this picture of him looking adorable next to a computer keyboard goes viral.
In what is probably the most shocking development the Zee/Zoey household has seen since the time aloof Rolz actually let his human’s pet him and pick him up without squirming (this may actually be pure speculation and wishful thinking and not confirmed fact), Kizmet has declared he will remain reclined out next to his human’s computer keyboard in an adorable pose for as long as it takes without food while waiting for his picture to go viral, or until it is time for dinner. Whichever comes first.
Kizmet is adamant and dedicated to his cause. As he puts it, “I’m just as cute as those other famous cats are and what’s the big deal with playing a keyboard or looking grumpy?” He continues, “I catch paper balls all the time and bring them back to my humans, plus I have a very endearing habit where I expose my belly, which is off the charts adorable. How much more does a cat have to do to prove they deserve to go viral?” “Not to mention, what’s up with Nyan Cat?” “He’s a flying cartoon cat with a body made out of a cherry Pop-Tart. Really? My body girth looks like an over sized loaf of rye bread, yet that doesn’t seem to catch anyone’s attention.”
As imagined, Kizmet’s boldness and desperate cry for attention has caused quite a stir with his other feline housemates who have allowed me to question them as to what they think of this developing situation:
Well, there you have it. You saw it for yourself just how much Kizmet’s plea for fame has affected the other cats. And as this ordeal has dragged on for what seems like an hour, but has actually only been eight minutes, Kizmet ends with this compelling question, “Is it time for dinner yet? I’m starting to get hungry and can’t lie here looking cute all day.”
Stay strong buddy, stay strong…
