The Purrfect Movie Star ~ OwlKitty: Born To Be In The Spotlight; Finds Family Who Allows Her To Shine

For many actors and actresses, it takes years to break into the film industry. Some never hit the “big time”. Then there are others who are discovered and their career skyrockets to success.

Every so often, a new face emerges on the big screen and people can’t help but notice. Stardom strikes and whether it’s just their 15-minutes of fame or not, the star appeal oozes from them. The newest actress demanding attention, is the purrfect storm of talent, beauty and long gorgeous fur…wait, what? Fur?! Yup.

Meet the beautiful, 2-year-old actress known simply by her stage name, OwlKitty.

You may recognize her from the many Hollywood remakes she’s starred in. Feline-loving “catsting” directors knew OwlKitty had the talent to make it to the big leagues. The diverse leading actress couldn’t be held back by things such as gender! OwlKitty would complement any onscreen co-star.

At the same time, there is a depth behind her eyes that suggests she knows exactly who’s running the show. 

SPOILER ALERT — it’s NOT her human servants, Thibault (Tibo) Charroppin and Olivia Boone. They are happy to cater to sweet OwlKitty, although to them she’s known by her “true” name, Lizzy.

Lizzy actually had stardom thrust upon her from the moment she was born. 

Her mama, pregnant stray cat Licorice, was taken into foster care by Shelby Thorpe in February 2017. Shelby is better known as @fosterkittenlove to her more than 78k Instagram followers. The cat was only a few weeks away from giving birth.

On March 3rd, Licorice had 6 adorable little babies later named after National Parks. The litter boasted three white kittens, one tabby and one fluffy little black kitten. Each one made their social media debut that day. There was even a video of the first kitten’s actual birth posted! 

She shared their images with some raw truth behind what their fates could have held. #SpayAndNeuter!

From an early age, Shelby noticed that the black kitten she’d named Sequoia, had star quality from the moment she opened her eyes. 

She frequently found Sequoia perfecting her acting skills with her only equal–her reflection. HAHA

As much as Shelby treasured raising the family, the goal is goodbye in fostering.

Licorice and her babies needed to find their fur-ever homes.

The perfect purrents, Tibo and Olivia have always been animal people and especially loved cats. Tibo maybe a bit more…

Snuggling with Tibo in the classic holiday photo, is tabby cutie, Juliette. She’s the resident senior lady at approximately 10 years old. 

The couple met Sequoia/Lizzy at a shelter meet-and-greet on April 15th, where she “really turned up the charm”. Happy to accept the kittens decision, they pre-adopted her at only 6 weeks old. She’d join their family when she officially reached 2 months old & 2 pounds.

When they brought new kitten Lizzy home on May 2nd, the girls thankfully hit it off. The duo can be found these days cuddling at their family home in Portland, Oregon.  

[Lizzy]’s always been one of a kind! She’s always had a huge personality and is extremely playful with us and with her adopted cat-mom, Juliette.

Lizzy’s huge personality was a perfect fit with Tibo’s hobby. With that magical combo–“OwlKitty” was born.

I [Tibo] have a background in editing and animation. I’ve worked for many years in the industry and I’ve always liked to use my free time to make goofy videos. 

We started making videos three months ago to share her acting skills with our family and friends. We hadn’t anticipated how much attention she’d receive, and we’re thrilled to see the OwlKitty community grow!

What makes this OwlKitty stand out from the rest? With her stardom, they are hoping to spread awareness of Feline Asthma, something she suffers from. While there is no true cure for asthma, there are various methods for successfully managing it.

Lizzy was diagnosed last year, but she doesn’t let it hold her back from big screen dreams.

And my what she’s been able to accomplish in 3 months!!!

Purr her website, she’s remade some of our favorite classics into even more amazing meowsterpieces!

So far, OwlKitty has made appearances in such classics as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, How to Train your Dragon, The Shining, Titanic, 50 Shades of Gray and Risky Business. You can also find her in Game of Thrones, Ariana Grande’s music video and Red Dead Redemption 2.

They say some are just born with it…and it’s safe to say OwlKitty’s got “it”. We’re happy to follow OwlKitty’s epic adventure away from all the PAWparazzi! Be sure you follow them on Instagram @owl__kitty for some seriously silly screentime.

  1. I know what feline asthma is like. We had a female ginger cat named Rusty who lived with the condition for about 10 years. I miss her but she taught me a lot about finding ways to give a cat medication without getting your fingers bit. Since we now have a female with feline hyperesthesia. (My apologies if the spelling is not correct)
