Lunchbox the Cat Reads Mean Tweets




Celebrity Cat Lunchbox Believes His Haters Make Him Stronger


OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – March 12th 2020 – “Don’t hate what you can’t imitate” are the words that local celebrity cat Lunchbox lives by. After becoming a Top 10 Finalist in the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts competition, internet trolls started coming for the Oklahoma Humane Society rescue cat. At a whopping 23 pounds there’s a lot of Lunchbox to love, and apparently, a lot to criticize in social media comments. Lunchbox has decided to take ownership of the negativity and prove to those who doubt him that he remains unbothered. Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” videos, Lunchbox has filmed himself reading some of the most spirited comments on his recent social media posts. In the words of Yeezy (also known as Kanye West), “Love your haters – they’re your biggest fans.”

Lunchbox is currently in the Oklahoma Humane Society Foster Program, working under medical supervision to obtain a healthy weight. Lunchbox found his way to OK Humane through the Community Cat Program; a program created to help humanely manage free-roaming or “feral” cat populations through TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release). Free-roaming cats brought in by the public are spayed or neutered, ear tipped, vaccinated for rabies, and returned to the community where they were found at no cost to the citizen. You can see Lunchbox’s left ear-tip identifying him as a community cat! Cats who display friendly behavior towards humans are evaluated and brought into the Oklahoma Humane Society’s Foster Program to be adopted. Lunchbox is one of these cats: he loves people, being pet, and the sound of adoring fans screaming his name.

Beating out over 4,000 other applicants to make it into the Top 10 Cadbury Bunny Finalists breeds jealousy, it seems. Lunchbox recognizes that only true celebrities cause this much excitement, and had this to say to his online haters: “Jealousy is a disease, get well soon!”
