Cat and the Gamer
by Reid McCarter
Cats ask very little of us. They need to be fed, brushed, given water
and toys to play with, and have their litter changed. In return, they
provide love and companionship, tempered only with the annoyances of
some occasional early morning meowing and ill-timed explosions of barf.
Because cats, for all their redeeming qualities, are also great at yacking
stuff up in the last place you’d want them to, a live streamer
who goes by JadedBlue will now be taking a break from playing games on
the internet. As a perfectly framed clip shows, his cat Kelsier decided
to cut short a Twitch broadcast yesterday by ralphing with such incredible
volume and direction that it broke a computer.
The video proceeds like a low-stakes horror short: JadedBlue is playing
a game, hears some disconcerting meows and asks “What’s the
matter, buddy?” After recognizing the first of several disgustingly
wet-sounding cat gags, he looks to his left, pleads “Oh, dude...dude,” and
the stream abruptly cuts off. Kelsier the cat, full of feline dignity
(and hastily eaten food), yartzed so hard it cut the video immediately.Later,
the streamer announced, with the grossest photographic evidence possible,
that he won’t “be streaming for a little bit” because
Kelsier “ended up puking directly into my computer,” likely
wrecking the motherboard, graphics card, and power.
This is the nature of the world. Cats are not stuffed animals. They are
living, breathing creatures whose affection comes with a few small caveats—like
that sometimes, in exchange for all the good they bring, they’ll
vomit straight into the top of your computer, costing you hundreds of
dollars and interfering with your video game streaming schedule.
