Grand Rapids Reporter Finds Cats Aren’t Into Standups

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WZZM reporter Emma Nicolas learned a lesson while shooting a standup at an animal shelter the other day near Grand Rapids, Mich.

You can be a cat lover, but that doesn’t mean they’ll cooperate.

She was attempting to shoot a standup for a story while holding a cat and basically got slapped. Seriously.


“Breanna needed my full attention!!!! She meowed if I put her down or if I spoke. Tough one to please,” she tweeted.

That being said, Nicolas said the county shelter was in desperate need of adopters.

One person on Twitter said it was the best thing to hit the social media platform all night. Take a look for yourself.
