Today, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, mother to the future Monarch of the United Kingdom, met a cat named Bob. She looked impressed; Bob did not.

People reports that Kate attended the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob, “about a young homeless musician and his unlikely friendship with a cat,” which is “based on the internationally acclaimed book of the same name and costars Downton Abbey‘s Joanne Froggatt.” Bob starred as himself:

“He’s having a bit of a grumble now, but it’s amazing,” said James Bowen, the former heroin addict whose life—along with 11-year-old feline Bob, whom he brought to the premiere on his shoulder—inspired the film. “Standing on a red carpet about a film about a part of my life, with my little man here, and he got to star as himself in the film. It’s very surreal.”


Apparently Bob is democratically minded, because he didn’t so much a twitch an ear at the chance to meet royalty. This is a cat who just does not care.
