Grab ‘Em by the —! Trump Followed a Cat Account on Twitter and the Tweets are Too Purrfect


While our future commander-in-chief is often blasted for his off-the-wall social media antics – he finally did something The Catington Post can get behind. President-Elect Donald Trump followed the popular cat-centric Twitter account @EmrgencyKittens.

Really, the jokes practically write themselves.

Trump only follows 42 accounts – so it’s no surprise that the internet took notice when Emergency Kittens became lucky 43. Then the tweets started:


And how did Emergency Kittens respond to their new follow? They tweeted this:

Unfortunately, after all the attention he received, Trump quickly unfollowed the kitten account before they had a chance to send him this direct message:

It’s not clear whether the follow was intentional (we’d like to think it was…because KITTENS!) but, sadly it was short-lived. Curious what will happen on Twitter when Trump officially takes office later this month?

Special Assistant to the president and Deputy Chief Digital Officer Kori Schulman explained:

On Twitter, the handle @POTUS will be made available to the 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017. The account will retain its more than 11 million followers, but start with no tweets on the timeline.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
