If you’ve ever been owned by a cat, you know they are likely calling the shots in the house. No one is safe from interruption these days from “roommates”, as they could care less if we are in an online meeting or on air.

Nerdist unveiled the story of meteorologist Jeff Lyons of WFIE’s 14 News and his cat, Betty, who loves attention from her human and could care less if he is providing weather information to numerous viewers around the Evansville, Indiana area or not.

“During one of Lyon’s recent reports, Betty walked over demanding to be pet—as is her right. He picked her up, and the rest was history. Now Betty, currently known as Betty the Weather Cat, appears as a frequent guest on the Channel 14 News weather report. Betty is a beautiful cat and obviously made for the screen. It’s no surprise she’s taken on this starring role with ease and grace.”

Betty rules the airwaves and has people from all over the world tuning in, just to see what the guesstimated 10-year-old kitty will do. Betty even has her own “Betty the Weather Cat Tracker” and had a Q&A session with Lyons after work about her newfound fame after she went viral.

Just give Betty the ham and ice water and she’ll continue to shine on screen, regardless of what the weather decides to do.
