[LISTEN] Meet the creative dad of Instagram sensation 'Owl Kitty'

Owl Kitty
Thanks to video editor "dad" Thibault Charroppin, Lily whose stage name is Owl Kitty, appears in popular movies and music videos.

OwlKitty is the stage name for Lizzy, a two-year-old cat that's taken the internet by a storm - by making an appearance in popular movies and TV shows thanks to her "dad" Thibault Charroppin a.k.a. Tibo.

Tibo is a video editor who uses green screen technology to seamlessly edit OwlKitty into movies scenes taken from Star Wars, The Matrix, Risky Business, John Wick,and even the upcoming Lion King - and the results are hilarious.

I am a video editor and worked on many movies and for many animation studios. A lot of the time it is freelance so that is how I ended up doing Owl Kitty videos.

Thibault Charroppin a.k.a. Tibo - Lizzy AKA 'Owl Kitty's' dad

I adopted Lizzy two years ago from a local shelter and was working from home a great deal and she was always on my lap so I had the idea to add her to movies.

It just blew up! We started doing it for our friends and family...and now we have half a million followers.

She is surprisingly malleable and will do pretty much anything for treats.

He wants to use her fame to raise awareness of choosing shelter cats.

The minute we got popular we decided to use the platform to raise awareness and giving away 20% of any profits to the VASDCA.
