Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys only wants the best for everyone ⁠— that’s why she wants to move to a farm, breaking down on stream while explaining why the change of scenery is the perfect next step after streaming.

Pokimane is one of the most wholesome streamers on Twitch, often lending a comforting shoulder to her viewers as well as other prominent broadcasters.

However, sometimes Pokimane needs a little bit of alone time to think through her own life and let it all out, she admitted during her February 5 stream.

Pokimane loves her cat Mimi dearly, to the point of breaking down on stream after explaining why she only wants the best for her.

While streaming, and “feeling emotional,” Pokimane burst into tears when the topic of cats came up. Being a cat mom, Pokimane will do anything for her pride and joy Mimi, but the thought of not doing enough scared the streamer.

That’s why she wants to move to a farm. “‘Cats are literally made for the outside’,” she said, reading a viewer’s message, before reflecting on it and making a decision for her future. “I need to live on a farm, oh my god. I just realized that’s what I want.

“I want to live on a farm where I can just have a cat and let them go and know it’ll be okay because then it’ll come back at least 99% of the time and I’ll know it’s just safe,” she added as she continued to think.

As the emotes started rolling in from her viewers, Pokimane became a bit self-aware of her emotional state. However, that didn’t stop her from wanting to change how she lives her life, even wishing she could morph into a close friend.

“I’m crying about my potential farm. Who am I, Greek? I wanna be Greek. Oh my god,” she said, tearing up in her chair.

She did shift the blame of her rather emotional outburst onto hormones, but that didn’t stop Pokimane from reiterating her usual positive attitude towards life.

“This is what being hormonal is like man. I can’t believe it. I have so many feelings for Mimi, you know, and all cats. I just want her to be happy. I just want everyone to be happy. I want to be happy too, this just stresses me out.”

Pokimane struggled to keep the tears back while explaining why she wants a farm for Mimi.

The streamer might just make such a move once her streaming career is over to take a break from the city lights and just chill with her cat. If enough of the OfflineTV crew get on board, maybe they might move the whole stream team out of town.

Either way, while her viewers got a kick out of her outburst, it just further showed how compassionate Pokimane can be. She’s one of the platform’s most wholesome streamers, and this moment is just another badge to add to the collection.


Top 5 Dr Disrespect ‘Doctober’ Halloween cosplays

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.


There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.


This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.


Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.


This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.


Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
