Pets are great companions. Anyone who has pets knows how they can simultaneously be so much fun and irritating. It doesn’t matter what animal you have; a bird, a cat, a dog, a rabbit or even a fish. When you bond with your pets, they’ve become your family.
Sometimes you can teach your pets tricks but on the other hand, they can also pull off some surprises. Some might even call their pets talented or gifted. Actress and comedian Kate McKinnon believes her cat is very gifted but not in the way you’d expect.
Speaking to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” recently, Kate shared about her experience with animals during her stay in Australia while filming. The 38-year-old stayed in Australia for a few months to film a TV show called “Joe Vs Carole”.
The conversation then lead to Ellen asking the actress about the well-being of her cat since she was not allowed to bring him to Australia with her. Kate told the talk show host how adorable and gifted her cat is. The SNL star revealed how her cat always manages to find her nipple whenever he climbs on top of her.
“His greatest talent is when he climbs on top of me, like some sort of X-Ray machine, he knows exactly where my nipple is and how to put his entire weight on my nipple only,” she said. Kate then proceeds to say that some will not agree that this is a gift but she believes it’s amazing how her cat knows exactly where to hurt her to the max.
The actress then asked Ellen if her cats do that too or if it’s just her to which the 64-year-old replied, “they all died. I lost all my cats but that’s okay”. The two stars could not help but laugh at how dark and awkward the conversation has gotten.
Ellen, teary eyed and still laughing, told the audience that they’re going to take a break to calm themselves. Watch the hilarious interview here:
During the same interview, Kate also shared with Ellen an old letter she wrote when she was 13 that she would’ve send to the comedian. In the letter, she thanked Ellen for being funny and her inspiration. She ended the letter by asking for advice about her pet iguana.
