Adventures of “Darth Vader Cat” Are Pretty Much the Reason the Internet Exists


“I don’t like sand. It’s coarse. It’s rough. It gets everywhere. And it’s generally in a box filled with my own feces and urine.”

That, at least, is what I imagine li’l Anakitty said before he grew up to become Darth Vader cat, who menaces his human with a lightsaber and a scale TIE fighter.

I watched this with my cat Toby just to see what sort of feline reaction it gets. He hated the lightsaber noises, but from the moment the laser pointer came into play till the moment it was gone, he stared, transfixed. And then bolted.

“Some things are soft.” But not a cat scared by TIE lasers. He’s all flying fingernails.
