He pets his hologram cat backwards during his taunt! You’re gonna ruffle up his fake fur!
This gets to me as well, cats totally hate that!
Would also be nice to give the cat some animation so it doesn’t look so stiff on a side note my cat loves having his fur ruffled <3
The cat is imaginary though it’s literally Kleese acting the part of the evil genius you can’t expect him to know how to pet a cat.
To this very day I still wonder if the backwards cat was intentional or not.
