Listen, it’s no secret I’m a crazy lady. Got four of ‘em (and counting).
I also love basketball, although, interestingly most of my cats, save Edith, a.k.a Weird Edith, do not. Something about the way my husband and I jump around and yell at the TV screen, I think).
So of course this NBA Cat Watch Twitter feed warmed my cat fur-covered heart.
The purpose: “Where trying to figure out which NBA players own cats happens.”
The feed dates back about two years and there’s also a Tumblr, which neatly categorizes cats by team.
It works mostly like this: The person behind the feed and site Tweets NBA-related peeps directly (players, coaches, owners, dancers. relatives, etc) to inquire if they’re a cat owner.
NBA Catch Watch has been working on the Sacramento Kings team lately, but so far the only participant include Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, who has two cats, a rescue cat and a “Golden Persian.” OK, those details were actually confirmed via his daughter Anjali but, whatever.
Actually Jimmer Fredette’s also played along. Well, kind of: Fredette’s wife Whitney confirmed the couple are “dog people!!!”
C’mon Kings players, play nice with the pretty kitty Twitter feed. I’m dying to know if Ben McLemore is a cat person.
