Move over, Cesar Millan, because Christopher Watson is a cat whisperer with over 2 million followers in the two years he’s been courting kitties. Watson got the nickname from fans who thought cats had secret meetings about him because they all love him so much. And these secret kitty meetings made them the “Cat Illuminati”.
Watson lives in Tacoma, Washington, and started touring the neighborhoods around him to meet cats. And then he started sharing the videos on TikTok.
He usually goes on 2 or 3 walks a week and says he seems to meet new cats each time. And you can tell by the cats in the videos, that they’re all feeling his friendly vibe.
If a cat is friendly, he’ll see if they’re into being picked up. But he’s always courteous and pays attention to their body language.
Many fans are impressed by how all cats seem to love him, as it’s common for cats to not want to approach strangers. But Watson admits he doesn’t have a perfect record.
Watson’s natural connection with our feline friends has in turn inspired humans to help cats in need. He says many followers have let him know that they’ve adopted cats or supported cats in various ways thanks to him.
While he clearly vibes with cats naturally, he does apply thought and effort into his catwalks. Check out his video below for tips to help you on your cat-whispering adventures.
