If you spend any time poking down feline-related social media wormholes, you’ll know that it’s not hard to come across some very strange and curious things. There is, for instance, a hashtag about the interaction of cats and Seinfeld‘s George Costanza. There are also cats and craft beer. And even cats who have been given haircuts to look like dinosaurs.
But the other day I trumped myself when I stumbled across a bizarre Instagram account in a language that I could not fathom, which seems to star a cross-eyed kitty. Plugging the name of the account into Google Translate tells me that it might be a peek into a “house with 21 cats that we love” somewhere in Thailand.
Whatever this account may or may not be, the cross-eyed cat is brilliant. Here’s what I have been able to deduce about his story.
First up, this is clearly a fantastic cat. I have no idea what his name is, although as the Instagram account is called Nnnuchh, I think that’s a fitting moniker for him. (Insert your own phonetical pronunciation of choice.) He also claims more than ten thousand followers, so he’s clearly no slouch on the social media circuit.
If the cross-eyed king is in charge of this particular operation, then the white-and-black cat he’s pictured with here is most certainly his lieutenant. As for the retro space-age jerseys they’re wearing? No idea, but I’d like to hope it’s either a local soccer team or some sort of pro-rescue endeavor.
I like to think our feline friends are deep in the midst of a brainstorming session here.
As the leader of this particular enterprise, it’s important to take some alone time so you can really come to grips with the intricacies of your grand plan (which, at this point, I now really hope is some sort of feline-helmed space mission). A cardboard box is, of course, a classic refuge spot.
While far from the 21 felines that Google Translate’s minions promised, there is definitely a third cat involved in this ruse. They definitely look like they’re all on the same page, right?
When venturing into deep space on a well-planned intergalactic adventure, it is important to wear the right outfit. Our new overlord’s travel-themed Hawaiian shirt says all the right things.
Let us never speak of this particular space outfit again.
After that last dressing debacle, I’m starting to think the other cat dude needs to be promoted to second-in-command. After all, he’s not only provided some space food, but also managed to ensure it’s packaged in a nap-friendly format.
Yep, always knew that original lieutenant was made of lily-livered stuff. Here he is flying the coop. What cowardice!
Actually, scrap all that, we have a new captain on the scene! With his freaky blue and green eyes, this guy is clearly a powerful leader from the future. I, for once, would like to salute his stewardship. Onward!
Feel free to attempt to fathom just what in the world is going on with these cats by following this quite brilliant Instagram account.
