She thinks she’s people
Jonathan introduced this video of a kitten occasionally pawing at Super Smash Bros. by saying, “It’s the least newsworthy news ever newsed, but it will make people happy to watch.”
Indeed, I had just come off a last-round defeat in Smash‘s All-Star Mode and the video drastically improved my mood. That’s the power of kittens. And the backstory makes it even better:
“Her name is Mappy and we rescued her October 21st when she was just a scared five-week-old kitten playing Frogger on the road in a busy intersection. She managed to get underneath the hood of our car while we were stopped at the red light. With the help of a few passersby we managed to get her away from the engine and back home cleaned up. Nowadays she loves playing and watching us play video games. Obviously, the Nintendo Wii U is her favorite.”
What a lovely family.
