"I've always been interested in acting. I've dabbled in it since I was a wee kitten. I've perfected my meows to a T. I'll just be sitting on the porch, and a stranger will pass me. This will be my moment. This is it. I will get into character of "cuddly neighbour cat" and give out my best performing act: meeeeeooowwwmrr mrrr. I've learned this specific kind of voice acting is perfect to convey exactly what I'm portraying. Strangers will approach with glee as I theatrically roll around on the ground (another tip I've learnt through method acting, and observing other stars, like Meowryl Streep).
But of course, I didn't start with strangers. I was timid once. I'd test my meows on my family, test my wardrobe changes. Clean laundry piles are my favourite. So many possibilities! I'd jump inside a container and engage in my "RAW CHICKEN, NOW!" scream-meow. Oof, love that one. I drew a lot of inspiration for that one in opera shows, combined with metal concerts. And in that moment, I AM the chicken craving character, my family just KNOWS. That's how I know I nailed it. Lights, camera, chicken!"
