Watch Kate McKinnon's Cat Shine in SNL "Whiskers R We" Skit

Kate McKinnon's Cat Is Her New SNL Co-Worker, and Wow, His Range Is Incredible

Kate McKinnon has a lot of history with her new Saturday Night Live costar, Nino Positano. They live together, but they're closer than roommates — you could say they're practically family.

On April 25, Kate's beloved cat joined her for another at-home episode and he stole the show during their "Whiskers R We" skit. Kate played Barbara DeDrew, a pet store owner trying to advertise her "bottom of the barrel" cats, while Nino played . . . everyone else. Does character acting run in the family? Watch the full skit above to see the hilarity go down. I have a feeling Nino's used to this kind of silliness even when the cameras are off.
