Hilarious Cat Loves To Put On A Show For The Chickens In The Yard

Many animals (and some people) are perfectly content to do little more than eating and sleeping all the livelong day. Obviously, few critters can compete with cats when it comes to lazing around.

Conversely, that’s what makes Scruffles the cat such an anomaly. He’s just an ordinary, adorable, chubby cat, but he loves to put on a show. Really, he’s just a natural performer.

His fans—who are primarily his owner’s chickens—can’t get enough of his shenanigans, either. It’s the sort of thing you just have to see for yourself…

All things considered, Scruffles isn’t that much different than other cats. He enjoys crawling into tiny spaces and lying around all day. He’s known to enjoy a good head scratch from time to time. There’s just one difference, though…

The one thing that really sets Scruffles apart is that he has a bunch of chicken friends, and they love to watch his every move! Naturally, Scruffles’ favorite place on Earth is right in front of the sliding door leading to the backyard where the chickens are.

After all, that’s where the curious chickens come to see Scruffles put on a show! Since they’re all so fond of staring at him at all hours of the day, Scruffles long ago decided to give the people—er, chickens—what they want.

Every once in a while, though, the chickens actually get to spend time with their favorite entertainer. Inside the house, without a glass screen between them, Scruffles and his feathered fans can do some mingling.

Sometimes, Scruffles will venture out into the chickens’ territory, too. There, he can get involved in all sorts of silly antics with them in the backyard! “What do you mean we’re the poor man’s Snoopy and Woodstock?”

As much as Scruffles enjoys his one-on-one interactions with the chickens, he still likes it best when they’re watching him perform. From behind the glass door, his audience will line up, strap in, and prepare for The Scruffles Show.

Scruffles has a few (similarly chubby) kitty siblings with whom he enjoys spending time as well. Although, they’re not quite as fond of his brand of entertainment as the chickens outside…

Even if they don’t buy tickets to his show, Scruffles’ siblings still love to get into all sorts of trouble. Of course, Scruffles is happy to join them, because, if nothing else, he’s still a mischievous cat!

At least on some level, Scruffles seems to realize that he’s a superstar. After all, it’s not only the chickens who love him. In fact, he’s managed to collect more than 68,600 followers on Instagram!

Who knows if the chickens really do find Scruffles that endlessly entertaining, or if they’re simply baffled by whatever the heck he’s trying to do. Either way, it certainly seems like a special relationship!

Scruffles would be super cute even if it weren’t for his propensity for show business, but that certainly helps make him special. Here’s hoping that those chickens never get sick of him!
