How This Saturday Night Live Cast Member Enraged a Cat Shelter

Last season on Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon and Charlize Theron played weirdo cat rescuers. At the time, the sketch seemed like a bit of inoffensive silliness, but apparently it really pissed off at least a few cat rescuers. Last night on Late Night With Seth Meyers, McKinnon told the story about enraging the employees of a cat shelter she had visited right before that sketch aired. "You don't really care about cats," they tweeted at her in disgust. Don't worry, McKinnonites: She does. She also talked about the Orange Is the New Black–related dream she had prior to learning about her Emmy nomination and impersonated Angela Merkel responding to Germany's World Cup win. All in all, it was a lot of Kate McKinnon. We are not complaining.
