Cat banter has become the norm for Politico‘s Patrick Gavin when he appears on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” where he averages one weekly appearance to discuss Politico‘s Playbook and whatever else they throw at him. In April, host Willie Geist transplanted his face onto the cover of Cat Fancy Magazine and host Joe Scarborough recently ridiculed the scribe for having cats. “Oh my God, what’s wrong with you?” Scarborough asked Gavin the last time they got into cat talk and the host learned that Gavin has three cats.
The night before Gavin’s appearance on the program this morning, host Mika Brzezkinksi began (if you will) cat calling him. “@pwgavin prrrrrrrr here kitty kitty kitty kitty…meeeeooooow,” she wrote on Twitter. He replied, “@morningmika Extra cat naps tonight to prepare. Then cat nip in the morning to perk up.”
On this morning’s show, the grief continued.
Mika: What’s going on with his hair?
Joe: It looks like cats have been nesting up there probably.
Gavin: I haven’t gotten a hair cut in a long time. It’s getting a little unruly.
