Don’t you just have a tender spot in your heart for people who adopt cats. I mean think of the level of compassion! In this Presley sketch, written by Nick Pappas for UCB Maude Night, that compassion might have gone a bit too far.

Their characters are so ingrained in their psyches, they exhibit all those feline characteristics cat lovers are all too familiar with. They spew hairballs, must be weaned back to human food, respond well to a spotlight, and go crazy for catnap, aka an 8-ball of coke. Will this woman’s lover be able tolerate Grizabella the “Glamour Cat,” Rum Tum Tugger, and the rest of the nocturnal Jellicle cats? Find out in Presley’s Adopted Cats! Meow.
