It's Thursday, which means another "Interviews With Cats"! Today, we CAT-ch up with George and Wheezy - these two Instagram-famous Brooklyn kitties have almost 50,000 followers! They also have active social lives - Wheezy is engaged(!) and George attends PetSmart events to mingle with other famous cats. Follow them here to keep up with their shenanigans and read on for more antics!


Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.

George: I am 5 years old. I was born in Rhode Island but have been a Brooklynite since I was teeny tiny kitten. Some of my nicknames are Georgaroo, Boo and Booboo.

Wheezy: I am 3 years old and have always been a New Yorker! My nicknames are Wheez, Wheezaroo, Mom, Mommy and Mama. I have no idea where the last three came from because I am no one’s mom. The human says it’s a term of endearment and a cultural thing.

Q: Is there a special story behind your name?

George: Well this is embarrassing. I was Georgina for the first 6 months of my life. My human thought I was a girl and then I had “The Surgery” and she found out I was a boy. She even cried about for a second because she had to change my name.

Wheezy: My given name is Louisie. Wheezy was a nickname that actually became my name. I was named after Louise aka Wheezy Jefferson from The Jeffersons, a 70's sitcom. The human thought it would be cute if my name matched George’s name (George Jefferson is also from the show The Jeffersons).

It’s true, I am a boy.

Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?

George: I would have to say it’s when I got a sister. I love Wheezy so much! And her whiskers are quite tasty.

Wheezy: I don’t show my excitement often. I try to play it cool and show my poker face, aka my "resting bitch face".

Cool as a cucumber.

Q: Tell us about your best day ever:

George: I recently went to the Petsmart #SpringIntoPetsmartparty! I got to meet a ton of famous cats and dogs from Instagram.

Wheezy: I didn’t go to that party because it would have stressed me out but I did get all the party swag! Win Win!

Reaping all the reward…. *evil laughter*

Q: What’s your favorite treat?

George: All types of cat treats, pumpkin and yogurt.

Wheezy: The same as George.

Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:

George: I sometimes like to puke on the bed. I am trying to quit that habit. Darn hairballs!

Wheezy: I like to scratch wood furniture. I’m not trying to quit that habit. It feels too damn good!

Look ma! No puke!

Look ma! No puke!

Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why? 

George: I love all the holidays because then my human gets to be home with me. I like to be her shadow. She’s always tripping over me.

Wheezy: I hate all the holidays because then the human likes to dress us up for a photo shoot. The only good thing about this is the ton of treats we get.

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?

George: A cat groomer. Have you seen what a great job I do on Wheezy?

Wheezy: A cat.

Uh, some privacy please?!?

Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?

George: Anything with catnip. Clearly I have a nip problem.

Wheezy: All the toys @chunkyfonznhitch's mom made for me. Especially the catnip engagement ring I received from Fonzie. Yes I'm engaged to him.

Wheezy: I can eat with chopsticks and am an excellent faucet drinker.

Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?

George: I like to meow at the door for no reason.

Wheezy: I'm perfect. Ok maybe mom gets annoyed when I scratch the wood furniture.

I expect treats for this too.
