Two things that the internet always appreciates is cat videos and movie clips edited into memes. Combine the two and you have the incredible Instagram account of Owl_Kitty. Run by cad dad and talented video editor Thibault (Tibo) Charroppin in Portland, Oregon, the Instagram account of Owl Kitty, real name Lizzy, is becoming a viral hit, with some posts gaining over a one million views.

Tibo is a full time professional video editor who creates cat masterpieces in his spare time with his cat Lizzy, a green screen, and a few famous video clips. What started as hobby, turned into an internet sensation and now he has almost 500k followers on Instagram. Lizzy appears next to the likes of Tom Cruise in Risky Business, Keanu Reeves in the Matrix, and replaces Jack Nicolson in a popular scene from The Shining, adding her own flair to every scene she appears in.

Lizzy also makes an appearance in the movie Jurassic Park. In the scene where Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady, played by Chris Pratt, Lizzy takes the place of a couple hungry dinos that Owen is trying to train. A kitty food dish takes the place of whatever was being fed to the dinosaurs and the caption reads “When it’s time to feed your cats”.

It takes a special kind of cat personality to make it in these movies, not all cats can act quite like Lizzy. To get the shot that he needs, Tibo sets up his green screen and then coaxes his Lizzy to walk or move a certain way that will compliment the movie scene, always motivating her with treats. After captures what he needs on camera, he takes to his computer to edit the scene so that Lizzy is perfectly aligned into the movie scene that makes it seem as though she was in the original movie.

The best example of this when she appears in a scene from How to Train Your Dragon. In the scene Hiccup is feeding the dragon for the first time. Lizzy appears as the dragon and walks up to Hiccup who is holding a fish, she gets close and eats it right from his hand. This was clearly created by feeding Lizzy a snack in front of the green screen and filming her reaction to the snack and wanting more of it.

Needless to say these videos have gotten Owl_Kitty and Tibo enormous amounts of attention. Its clear from interviews that Tibo loves making these fun videos in his spare time and will continue to create. In an interview he said that his eventual goal is to bring more attention to the fact that Lizzy is a rescue cat and the importance of adopting from shelters. With all the attention that Lizzy is getting online, lets just hope this now found fame doesn’t go to her head.
