A Twitch streamer’s cat sent his broadcast into chaos after attacking the microphone, biting it, and making some truly strange noises that spun the stream on its head entirely.

Pets can be some of the best additions to a streamer’s setup. As much as your favorite streamer may be entertaining, sometimes a cute dog, cat or something entirely different can bring some heartwarming or hilarious moments to a broadcast.

In the past, we’ve seen dogs trying to be the star of the show and cats ruining shows in the most disgusting way possible, but this cat took a new direction in making himself the main attraction.

TheHarryHorrorShow is a true crime and conspiracy streamer on Twitch.

While doing a true crime stream, looking at the story of the “Nightstalker Killer,” TheHarryHorrorShow had to put the stream on hold to address his pet cat, who had taken refuge on his desk in front of the camera and was desperately trying to get the streamer’s attention.

Following being put down twice after nipping at Harry and making herself comfy on his lap, she finally jumped back up and, unable to keep Harry away from his desk, decided to take down his streaming setup instead.

She started biting at the microphone, making scratching noises and then emitting some strange, unreplicable whining noises that sufficiently expressed her dismay.

Her persistence left Harry, and all of his viewers, in hysterics, clearly resigned to the fact that this stream would have to take a little longer than expected as she refused to pass the spotlight back to her owner.

Eventually, the streamer moved the bench she was using to jump up to his desk so that she could no longer get in the way, but she looked dismayed at what he had done to her, finally leaving the room.

Although the story being told in the stream was very heavy and dark, it lightened up surprisingly quickly when the cat made her presence known and turning the entire stream on its head. Not a bad distraction.

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
