Ever wonder how Simon’s Cat came to be? Wonder no more, with this new video JUST OUT.



  1. How fun to learn the backstory of Simon’s cat! Thanks!

  2. Sasha's Mum says:

    Now we know! (And I think I will now refer to Simon’s cat as “Hugh.”)

  3. Kari Callin says:

    Great to know how this Simon’s cat fabulousness started! 😀

  4. omahgooness! It’s even MORE fun now!!

  5. Hello, his name is Simon. And he likes to do draw-rings…

  6. Sasha's Mum says:

    Oh the pictures take me, take me over
    Climb the ladder with you.

  7. Simon needs to be on the Men of CO calendar.

  8. I’d like to visit London (and Australia) just to hear people talk like that. All. Day. Long.

  9. I LOVE Simon’s Cat!!!! (Happy Dance)
    Could he make the films more quickly if I volunteered as his personal slave? I would do EVERYTHING so all Simon would have to do is make films. Who’s with me?

  10. this made me so unbelievably happy. i love simons cat. and i love that he has four cats.

  11. EqMCSquared says:

    Beat me to it.

  12. Young Simon reminds me of the kid in Love, Actually…

  13. He has four cats? That raises my opinion of him even more.

  14. me too. only people who has ever lived / had a close relationship with a cat could portray them so realistically yet so amazingly at the same time xxx

  15. Seeing this has made my day!! I appreciate Simon even more!!

  16. AWW 😀 I am so glad that Simon is able to give four kitties a loving forever home 😀

  17. lisaLASSIE says:

    Neo, I saw this on Facebook yesterday or so, and I proposed marriage to Simon. I am waiting for his acceptance.

  18. Martha in Washington says:

    So the line starts here?

  19. Martha in Washington says:

    Trying to decide which is cuter- the cats or the accent!
