Wilfred is on tenterhooks waiting for the ⚽️ match tonight! He's barely touched his kibbles this morning he's that anxious! #comeonengland #worldcupfever #worldcup2018 #itscominghome . . . . #england #worldcup #footballscominghome #garethsouthgate #football #worldcuprussia #fifa #fifa18 #catsofinstagram #cats_of_instagram #thedodo #petsofinstagram #theellenshow #9gag #buzzfeed #buzzfeedanimals
Wilfred has over 72,000 followers on Instagram, but a recent video of the cat has launched him from cult hit, to viral superstardom. The original video, posted by his owner on August 7, was fairly cute and amusing, showing Wilfred having a bit of a staring contest with another kitty.
But on November 11, actor and comedian Michael Rapaport posted a dubbed-over video to both Instagram and Twitter where he appears to freak out about the “weird fucking stray cat” outside his house, which he says looks like his grandma.
Sure Rapaport had some funny moments in The War at Home but this voiceover might just be the most hilarious thing he’s ever done. Twitter certainly seems to think so at any rate.
LMAO I just watched this so many times— ✨krishelle✨ (@evolsylv) November 13, 2018
Lucy’s face tells it all. That’s Ray Ray from down the way. She gave him some of that kitty, and now he’s sprung. Young love is a weirdly, beautiful thing, no?— Tisha Cee ADOS (@TishaCee1) November 11, 2018
Although several people didn’t know that the video was edited and worried about the poor unfortunate-looking feline.
I know you’re just making fun but if the cat needs a home I’ll gladly adopt him/her.— Makeuptalent ³³º¹ (@Makeuptalent) November 13, 2018
That's a lost cat. To pretty to be a community cat. Someone lost their kitty. Hope found way back home— Gulag Inmate #4517 (@SugarCatDancer) November 13, 2018
But there’s nothing to fear. Wilfred Warrior is safe and apparently quite happy. Here he is snuggling with his owner, who obviously loves him very much.
Which just goes to show, there’s someone out there for everyone, even if you’re an extremely weird-looking cat.
