Greenpoint Video Du Jour: Presenting The Animals Of Animal Planet
Meet Kobe and Cee Cee. Kobe is the orange and white tabby to the left, C.C. the black and white tabby to the right. They are the fabulous feline duo who keep careful watch over Greenpoint’s very own Animal Planet.* Be it by “quality testing” the occasional catnip mouse, tearing up paper towels, sleeping behind the counter or (as seen above) demonstrating the the use of Animal Planet’s products; they make sure everything is up to snuff.
They are a very affable pair. I make it a point to pick up Kobe and hug him despite the fact he has “grown out” of the “cuddling” stage. This once little guy has become a man now. Kobe has opted out of hugs and prefers to spend his winter afternoons napping. He makes this clear to his apprentice, C.C., in the following video. Albeit eventually. Enjoy!
So it goes with being a working class cat at Animal Planet. I have to confess: I rather envy Kobe.
