There are certain things we know about the Lopez twins, such as their collective nerdcore obsessions with things like comic books, Disney princesses, and, of course, domesticated felines. The chances were good they’d have an unhealthy preoccupation with the latter, but we didn’t know quite to what extent until now. Turns out they’re firmly in the upper echelon of the crazy-cat-people spectrum.
The first unmistakable and silent-judgment-inducing sign is when owners un-ironically start ascribing complex human emotions and motivations to their pets’ behavior, as Robin did recently in an interview while attempting to explain why he and brother Brook, though they both currently reside in the New York metropolitan area, can’t live together. Via Kristen Fleming of The New York Post:
“Brook’s cat is very two-faced,” Robin tells The Post. “Everybody loves Brook’s cat. To everybody’s face, he’s such a nice cat. And it may sound like I’m joking, but I am dead serious. He acts like a lazy, sweet cat when everybody is looking. But when their heads turn, he’ll try to chase after [my cat] Edward. The second I lay eyes on him, he’ll act like, ‘I’m a cherub. I’m innocent.’ I’m not buying it.”
As longtime owners of multiple domesticated felines ourselves, we can certainly sympathize. We’ve seen our fair share of disconcertingly violent territorial grandstanding over the years, which subsequently led to multiple vet visits, which for anyone whose ever patronized a veterinary hospital knows, can be exorbitantly expensive especially if you are among those whose current financial means aren’t budgeted for pet insurance, which, conversely, we’re pretty sure the Lopez twins’ cats probably enjoy better and more comprehensive access to healthcare than most bipodal human beings we know. But that’s neither here nor there.
