Older cat offers words of wisdom to kitten
June 7, 2014
Drawing upon everything he has learned, an older cat shows a kitten the ropes.
The video beings with, "Dear Kitten, since I have hissed at you the customary 437 times, it is now my duty as the head of the household to begrudgingly welcome you," and only gets better from there. Through this unique orientation session, we learn what it takes to be a cat — how to behave, what to avoid, and how to hide from the monster known as "vacuum."
"Dear Kitten" was produced as a commercial for Friskies, demonstrating this cat's strong preference for wet food over dry. The commercial is part of the If You Feed Me campaign, in which people we encouraged to submit pictures of their cats' promises, should they be given wet cat food rather than dry. Some notable examples include "I will wear Grandma's knitted sweater," "I'll stop climbing into weird places," and "I'll promise to ignore you all the same."
