Cat steals the show from Twitch streamer in most hilarious way possible

One Korean Twitch streamer got more than she bargained for after letting her cat survey her streaming setup during a January broadcast.

While live streaming platforms like Twitch are often hailed for the unexpected and hilarious moments that crop up on camera, adding pets to the mix often adds to the humor tenfold.

Although many pet-related incidents have occurred in past broadcasts, Korean Twitch streamer “bintokki’s” pet cat decided to steal the limelight in a major way.

Twitch streamer “Bintokki” got more than she bargained for after letting her cat sniff around her desk.

Bintokki, best known for her “Just Chatting” broadcasts and humorous conversations with her viewers, was in the middle of one such stream when her cat jumped onto her desk.

As if stepping on her keyboard wasn’t enough, the feline stood front and center before the camera, giving it a good sniff while its face took up the entire frame.

“Sir, that’s my rig!” bintokki laughed as the cat batted at her webcam, getting so close to the lense that all viewers could see was its dark fur. “That’s my webcam! Why are you eating my webcam? Stop eating my webcam. Aiya! …I know you have seven lives, but can you stop?”

Luckily for the streamer, her pet finally moved out of the way — although her viewers didn’t seem to mind, enthusiastically agreeing when she asked if she should let her furry friend do as he pleased.

“My cat is an attention wh**e,” she joked. “He wants to be on stream. He’s like, ‘I’m on TV!’”

While this isn’t the first time a cat has stolen the show from a well-meaning Twitch streamer, it’s certainly the most direct, with bintokki’s cat demanding the spotlight by putting himself directly in view of the camera.

Other instances of pet shenanigans have been less humorous, with one streamer’s house nearly catching fire after her cat happened to turn on her infrared stove during a live broadcast.

Streamer “Chisaihato” had a more lighthearted fail in 2019, after her feline friend started cleaning its nether regions as soon as she showed him off for her fans.

Needless to say, pets can definitely make streams more interesting, thanks to their “no f**ks given” attitude and shameless stunts for attention.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
