Goal Kitty is the Internet’s New Favourite Cat
Goal Kitty aka Keys is taking the internet by storm since Imgur user Kirakittykat posted some photos with the heading “So my friends cat does this…”
The adorable images of the cat posing with her paws stretched above her head have now been viewed more than 330,000 times with a staggering 20,000 comments, many saying the waving kitty looks like she’s saving a goal.
Since the photos were posted they have inspired a collection of photoshopped images showing Keys in a variety of hilarious situations, including saving a goal on a football pitch, riding a rollercoaster and even replacing Dicaprio’s oscar. All this attention led Kirakittykat to start an Instagram account and Facebook page where she is quickly becoming a firm favourite.
Peter Mares, who lives with Keys, explained that she started doing it one morning as a sort of stretch and he grabbed his camera. When she repeated it the next morning, he rewarded her with a treat. It’s now become so routine that she does these ‘goal hands’ whenever she sees the camera.
Here are some of the hilarious photoshopped pictures of the now famous Goal Kitty:
