The Cleverest Cat in Charleston

Holy City Sinner

Published

Reading about his pet on the CNN website was not what Patrick de la Peña expected in his free time. The Charleston man who left his job last month, however, recently experienced exactly that!

De la Peña and his fianceé have been teaching Sherlock to do tricks for most of her life, but it wasn’t until recently that the world discovered the two-year old Siberian forest cat’s antics.

Thousands have started watching her perform her stunts, including spins and handshakes, leaving even dog owners impressed!

See it All at Pat and Cat

The first two videos that de la Peña uploaded on to his Pat and Cat YouTube channel each saw nearly 40 000 people admiring Sherlock in less than a month. The young couple have recently released the third episode, which reveals that Sherlock can high five with aplomb.

De la Peña has said that he is a firm believer in the fact that people grossly undervalue the connection they could create with cats in general.

He stated that they are most often viewed as a sort of accessory pet, and that this is so easy to do because they don’t need that much from their owners. He went on to say that although teaching dogs to do tricks has become part and parcel of owning one, most people believe it’s impossible to do the same with their cas. Because they are so much more aloof than dogs are, people assume the task would be impossible and don’t bother trying.

Much the same could be said of Australian sports betting, where people assume it’s impossible to pick a winner and make serious money as a result. In actuality, all you need is a good bookmaker, a little knowledge under your belt, and the patience and control to do it properly.

A New Way to Look at Cats?

De la Peña wants to change the way people think about cats, and his YouTube channel is the way he’s going to do it. It’s also a side project he’s focussing on while he’s unemployed. He created the channel after he quit his job as a Bosch engineer, and plans to attend law school in Florida shortly. He viewed the videos as an enjoyable way to fill the intervening time, and intends to keep on releasing a new one every week even though he’s headed south soon.

Billie Fountain’s in the Mix

The videos have also cultivated a collaboration between Corey Webb, aka Billie Fountain, and de la Peña, with Fountain creating the music for the videos and helping a little with the editing along the way.

There may be millions of cat videos available online these days, but de la Peña believes that his YouTube channel operates essentially like a library does, allowing people to explore the possibilities open to them when it comes to training cats.

It’s a fun, engaging way for new perceptions about our feline friends to be promoted. De la Peña says that the tricks are a great way to impress your friends and family, but also encourage a deeper bond between you and your pet.
