Oh My F*cking God It’s “Orange is the New Black” With Cats

Carmen’s Team Pick:

Perhaps the only experience more amazing, addictive, and strangely emotional than watching the entirety of Orange Is The New Black Season 2 in 48 hours is watching a bunch of cats reinvent the entire premise in under two minutes. I honestly think that in watching this I both expanded my ability to love and learned to appreciate the unique contributions of cats to the world (but don’t tell Eli). Plus, even better than that are how great Alex’s glasses look on everyone.

I bring you Tabby Is The New Cat – a Petflix original series following Piper Catman’s foray into residential life. Try not to relate too hard, okay?

  1. Kitten Alex in the cardboard washing machine though!

    Autostraddle, you bring me the bestest vapid fluff.

  2. I don’t know how they found a cat that looks exactly like Alex Vause but somehow they did.

  3. That’s HILARIOUS.

    My favorite part:

    “Where’s the chicken???? WE NEED TO ABSORB ITS POWER!!!”

  4. So cute and genius! I would gladly pay $7.99 in kibble to watch a full 13 episode season of this! Yay! Pussy ♥
