Why Is Netflix Sending Me Cat Pictures? #StreamTeam

I get prompts periodically from Netflix suggesting what is cool to talk about that particular month.
Don’t get me wrong, they are in no way telling me what to write.
Nope, just gentle prompts about new movies and such that are premiering on Netflix.
This is the thing: they have no idea who they are dealing with.
Well, I think they do by now because it’s been a solid year but I am not one to do what I am told.
To follow the rules.
Go with the flow.
Oh yes, I am afraid of authority and all that goes along with it.
I am not NOT following the rules ON PURPOSE.
I am no James Dean.
No siree.
I un-follow the rules by accident.
Oh, you want me to write about your hemorrhoid cream in a professional yet discreet manner?
Yeah, I will talk about the time I couldn’t sit down for a month with my post-pregnancy ‘roids.
You would like me to gently tell my readers about this cool disco show for kids in the city?
Umm, I will suggest you find a bar when you get there oh and by the way, my butt sweats when I dance.
Someone like me gives PR people the night sweats.
So when Netflix sent me two pictures of cats from Instagram, I felt like they finally had a finger on the pulse that is me.
Hamilton the Hipster Cat.
A cat with an Instagram account who is hipper than I shall ever try to be and he has a “mustache”.
Oh and wears hats.
And KimchiKitty.
Another cat with a hat on……seriously what is up with cats and hats??
I have a deep dark secret- I love animals dressed up as humans.
Dogs with sweaters on in the winter make me squeal with glee.
Cats in rubber boots will make me giggle to the point of tears.
Yes, Netflix found my Achilles heel.
And they will find yours too this month if you like all things animal and dress up related.
Or just animals.
Rubber boots optional.

Like Puss in Boots or Milo and Otis.
Honestly, if you don’t like a movie like Milo and Otis, you have no soul.
I mean if a dog and a cat can go on a road trip together, why can’t my children get along in the car on the way to the Target.
Did I say that out loud?

Monkey Trouble is one of Ellie’s favorite movies about animals right now.
When it’s not Air Bud.
Oh wait, that’s mine.

Okay fine, for you refined animal type movie/television show watchers out there,  there is always Marcel the monkey from Friends!
Or Baxter from Anchorman!

“Baxter! You know I don’t speak Spanish!”
“Baxter, bark twice if you’re in Milwaukee.”
“And you ate a whole wheel of cheese? How’d you do that? Heck, I’m not even mad. That’s amazing.”


Anyhoo, go get your crazy monkey, a cat wearing a hat, dogs eating cheese freak on this month on Netflix.
Hamilton is waiting.


I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team. Meaning, for the next year, once a month I will be writing posts about how my family is using our Netflix. They provided me with a Roku and a voucher for my Netflix account.

  1. I remember watching those movies millions of years ago! I loved Homeward Bound though, Chance and Shadow and a cat named Sassy.:)


  2. The fact that you used the terms "butt sweats" and "hemorrhoids" in the same paragraph is one of the things I love most about you.


  3. Ahahahahahahaha. I love you. And I'm pretty sure after I killed it with the Neflix friendsgiving prompt (read totally went apeshit on it), they probably hate me.
