A Twitch streamer had his June 14 broadcast rudely interrupted by an unlikely culprit – his cat.
Many streamers use Twitch to broadcast their favorite games, with hundreds of thousands of users turning to the platform every day to show the world what they’re playing.
Twitch streamer ‘itsjustj0rd’ was trying to do just that, with a playthrough of open-world adventure game Subnautica, before his cat decided to sabotage his stream.
What a naughty kitty
The streamer is seen trying to construct a Sea-Base in the game, before having to stop because of his cat Timmy’s shenanigans.
“Timmy! What are you doing?!” he asks the cat. “Why don’t you tell the people…” He is suddenly cut off by his cat, as it hilariously closes his game and the streaming client.
“Aw, cat! You’ve only gone and shut the str-” itsjustj0rd starts to say before his entire stream shuts down, leaving viewers with Twitch’s disconnected splash screen to stare at.
Cat owners will know just how demanding the little critters can be, and his cat certainly grabbed his attention in a big way.
Cats aren’t the only animals sabotaging streams
itsjustj0rdo isn’t the only streamer who’s had his stream rudely interrupted by an animal. Popular broadcaster ‘Knut’ was streaming from Northern Europe when he had his lunch pinched by a seagull.
The bird decided to be stealthy and go for the bodybuilder’s lunch after he left the shot quickly to go to the bathroom, leaving his food unattended.
Luckily, an elderly lady was around to protect the lunch, batting and swatting at the seagull to keep it at bay until the streamer returned.
His viewers watched the entire situation in hysterics, and even Knut found the funny side once he’d returned to his stream.
