Kate McKinnon is one of our favorite comedians (she flipping won AN EMMY for her comedy chops this year), so it would stand to reason that the lady can be funny about anything, including the very specific pain of having a very ungrateful pet.
As she explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show this week, McKinnon’s cat Nino (or her “son” as she awesomely refers to him), is quite the ungrateful little kitty.
Not only is Nino ungrateful, he’s also most unimpressed with his mistress’ recent big win.
Cue cat owners everywhere sighing and sadly shaking their heads because they know all too well what it’s like to have your little furball be totally uninterested in your life accomplishments.
It’s possible that Nino is being particularly withholding because he is grumpy about his new eating regimen.
Fallon, as a visual aid, pulled out a pic of McKinnon holding Nino in her sweatshirt, pre-diet:
He is a big dude, to be sure, but what we’re most struck by in the pic is how clearly obsessed these two are with each other. Nino may be an ungrateful pet, but he’s clearly in love with his human. As are we, Nino, as are we.
