Cat asks mom to turn on cartoons every morning: "Her favorite show currently is 'Oswald'"

Her family did not realize how much Ella would be addicted to watching cartoons until a month later when Kalaygian turned on The Grinch to have some background noise while she did chores. 

There's a cat on TikTok who is known for her love of watching cartoons. The kitty named Ella knows exactly what she likes and dislikes and her family, who adopted her at the age of 10, were pleasantly surprised by her decisiveness.

"Ella is very sassy and demanding," revealed Ella’s mom Emily Kalaygian, who when on to explain, "That's only because she's a lady who knows what she wants and I can't fault her for that!" She added, "However, I will say she has her polite moments. Lots of mornings she waits by my door until I am awake. But that's not to say she doesn't use her voice to sing the song of her people when she needs to."

Her family did not realize how much Ella would be addicted to watching cartoons until a month later when Kalaygian turned on The Grinch to have some background noise while she did chores. 

 

That day Ella seemed to be quite intrigued by the colorful characters on the television. Little did her mom know that it was just the beginning of Ella's obsession with cartoons. "My husband and I started experimenting to see what she does/doesn't like, and once 2020 came around and we were stuck inside with her and the TV, it only grew from there," Kalaygian told The Dodo

Now it has come to the point where Ella doesn't miss a day of watching her favorite cartoons. Yes, she has preferences and a regular routine. According to Kalaygian, Ella waits outside her bedroom door every morning until she turns on the feline's daily selection. 

 

"In the morning, she usually waits by my door (or screams when she's feeling fancy), and I will pick a show to watch to see if it's something she'd enjoy. By now I can tell what she won't/will like, but some days she surprises me! Then after, she does her thing (sleep) and I do mine (work). Then usually when it's getting late, she's back up and we enjoy either another show or a movie! We used to watch lots of movies but lately have been enjoying shows as people have been giving so many recommendations to see what Ella will like!" shared Kalaygian. 

The cat mom shared Ella's story on TikTok and people became incredibly obsessed with her cartoon addiction. It's also fun for them to discover the shows Ella likes. "Her favorite show currently is 'Oswald' — we have watched the episodes on Paramount+ on a loop it feels like,” Kalaygian said. “Before 'Oswald,' she was a HUGE 'Phineas and Ferb' fan but 'Oswald' knocked them off the pedestal recently. And of course, she's known for her love of Benedict Cumberbatch, which is why she watches the 2018 Grinch and the 2018 Grinch ONLY. Sorry, Jim Carrey," shared Kalaygian.
