Dear Kitten: Older household cat's advice to new kitten
Published 10/06/2014 | 17:15
This Dear Kitten video has gone viral in recent days due to its humorous portrayal of the old, veteran cat of the household giving advice to the new, naive kitten.
It’s told from the point of view of an older cat delivering words of advice to a younger cat that, he sorrowfully notes, may be his replacement.
While it is fundamentally an advertisement for Friskies cat food, it is so well done that viewers may not notice until the sales pitch at the end of the clip.
The video begins with the older cat begrudgingly welcoming the new kitten.
“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,” the mature cat says.
Some of the old cats’ advice touches on topics such as the dangers of the “va-cuum” and the delights of the “underwear drawer”.
The older cat is narrated by Ze Frank, the Executive Vice President of BuzzFeed, whose familiar voice has graced many online videos.
Check out the viral video that is closing in on eight million views since being posted on June 5.
