Bryan Furry and Roxy Mewsic: New YouTube Vid Starring Roxy (the Cat) & Behind the Scenes

01 BeautyandtheCat Make Over Roxy the CatTwo weeks ago, I bused my way up to NY to see Roxy Renee and film MOAR YouTube vids.  Given our love for Roxy–our blog mascot and muse–it was only natural that Renee and I created a video starring her.

Roxy is an all-natural beauty who goes without any adornments or enhancements most days.

My love for Roxy has been long unrequited.  I first met her several years ago (Renee adopted her in 2012).  My initial attempts at affection were rebuffed with scratches and hisses, and the best I could hope for was indifferent coolness.  In the many visits since then, I’ve kept a cautious distance, admiring her only from afar.  All the while, Renee cuddles and kisses Roxy with ease–even receiving cuddles and kisses from Roxy!  Nope, not bitter at all.

Well something changed this visit.  One morning, in my half-asleep/half-awake haze, I felt the soft padding of paws next to my head.  And then the warm and unmistakable fluff of fur on my face.

I dared not reach out for fear of being rebuffed.  Instead, I lay still, just reveling in the nearness of her while my heart silently exploded into fireworks.  Play it cool, Angela.

That afternoon, we took Roxy for a furcut in anticipation of her big YouTube debut.  Renee did the real heavy lifting: 6 flights of stairs down while carrying Roxy in the carrier.  Roxy is not exactly, um, light as a feather.  Or even light as a cat.

I was happy just to pull her through the streets and parks of NY, taking care to lift up the carrier every time a wet puddle or bumpy crack appeared.

Instantly slimming! Where can I sign up for a lion cut?

The next morning, again in my sleepy haze, I felt a firm touch.  Actually TWO firm touches on my arm that lingered for several minutes.  As if Roxy just wanted to be near me.  Near ME!  My heart exploded right there and I’m now writing from blogger heaven.

Anyway, in the video Roxy wears The Face Shop’s Real Gloss Vivid in Red Hommage (RD01), a wonderfully pigmented and long-lasting creamy, bright red gloss.  The brush applicator pops out with a press of the button on the end.

  1. Oh my God this is the cutest thing. Or is that Roxy? Not sure.

    I like to pretend that a cat’s ultimate expression of affection is the signature butt press. It made me feel better about my cats pressing their butts on me all the time.

      1. I had a weird, clingy rescue cat who used to press his butt on me all day long. It’s definitely a sign of affection.

        On a scale of one to ten, where one is Indifferent Observer and ten is Unhinged Fan with Shrine, I’d say this reads at about an eight. Well done.
