Best Hamilton The Hipster Cat Vines

This video features Hamilton the Hipster cat. He is from San Francisco and became popular because of the white markings on his face which resemble a perfect mustache. Hamilton has also been described as the world’s most interesting cat – but clearly this is some clever and slightly irreverent branding. How does one measure the interestingness of a cat against that of other cats? I do not see how this can be done.

Hamilton was abandoned and was put up for adoption. Jay Stowe (his present owner) paid a visit to the local shelter one day to adopt. There were only two male kittens there; one was a very playful, cuddly kitty and the other was quietly curled up in the corner of the cage. The latter was Hamilton. He is a feral cat meaning he was born and raised without contact from humans and anybody who went near him would get hissed at. However when a volunteer picked him up and put him in Stowe’s hands, the not-so-friendly cat immediately fell asleep. Game over.

Now, Hamilton is a bona fide internet super star with nearly 100,000 likes on Facebook and almost 550,000 followers on Instagram. He even got a starring role in a Friskies music video, appeared in commercials, had his own calendar line and had a web series! It sure sounds like Hamilton is “bringing home the tuna”. However, he doesn’t do any visits and P.R. meet-ups because he gets uncomfortable around crowds due to his feral nature.
