While Christmas is a time to be with friends and family, enjoy good food and drinks – and, yes, receive presents – it’s not quite so cheerful for your cat. Or so says a super squad of Internet famous felines in a new music video.
Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Nala Cat and Oskar the Blind Cat come together to help spread an important message this holiday season: It’s hard to be a cat at Christmas. The quintet mopes along while a festive song plays and explains why it’s challenging for a family pet to be around so much merriness, including human gifts and good eats, without being included.
But, as it turns out, the cats are actually upset over something far more meaningful: their feline friends who aren’t so fortunate. Produced by Friskies, the video’s conclusion promises that for every view it receives (up to 500,000), the cat food company will donate a can of wet food to a furry friend in need. So give it a click, and help cheer up this group of furballs with a heart of gold.
