GoalKitty Waves Her Hands in the Air Like She Just Doesn’t Care

Keys, better known as GoalKitty, has been an icon in the pet meme scene for years but has yet to be featured on Celebrity Pets. GoalKitty’s human, Peter Mares from California, noticed the tuxedo cat would occasionally stand up to stretch. After managing to catch a photo of the big stretch, he decided to give her coconut oil as a treat for doing it again. (with coconut oil being the only treat-ish thing nearby at the time)

GoalKitty soon learned to associate the treat with the camera and stretching. Then she would do it whenever her human pulled out the camera.

When the cute photos of Keys went viral, they quickly became a meme. With Keys looking like she was stopping a goal in soccer, she soon was known as “GoalKitty”.

Then tons of different memes (and sports) were being combined with GoalKitty. Such as riding a rollercoaster despite clearly being under the height requirement.

She also gave pro football a go.

And even had success as a boxer.

While she’s been successful at sports, she didn’t forget the importance of an education.

GoalKitty’s fame has also seen her appear alongside celebs such as Leonardo DiCaprio.

GoalKitty has also parodied pop culture moments, such as John Cusack in his iconic scene in the 1989 movie Say Anything.
