Rachel Wolfe created Figgy and Juliet’s TikTok account

She just opened the account for fun

Rachel had no idea what she was doing when she started the account, which now has more than 5 million likes. She explains- “I was under the assumption that the app was mostly dancing and lip-syncing videos, and thought that a cat being on the app was a completely novel idea.”

Rachel says that Figgy frequently stands on the back feet of his feet while playing, and she had initially intended to use these clips on his page to make it appear as if he was dancing. But she soon learned about ‘Cat TiKTok’ and that it was one of the platform’s largest niche groups.

Rachel was excited to share more details about her beloved pets. First up was Mr. Fig, and here’s what she said- “Figgy (aka The Figster, Mr. Fig, and Figs) is an almost-5-year-old domestic shorthair—although his cat DNA test results show he is most genetically similar to the Maine Coon.” A few days after graduating from college, Rachel found him “as a teeny tiny kitten stranded in the rain. He has been living the spoiled cat life ever since.”

“His eyes add so much emotion to his face and he seems to always have the perfect expression in any scenario,He often looks cranky and a bit intimidating, but he is such a sweet cat and loves to make friends with everyone he meets”- she continued.

Rachel’s second cat, Juliet, was adopted exactly four years ago. “She is about the same age as Figgy and is tiny, tailless, and extra floofy. Figgy has grown to love her very much, although he would never admit it if he could talk,” she jokingly added.
