First, she put her paws up in the air. Then, she waved ’em like she just didn’t care. And finally, a stellar meme was born.
GoalKitty, aka Keys, stole the hearts of the Internet, with her tall stance and enthusiastic paws. Then it became clear that her cheerleader-like/goal hands pose would be perfect in about a million other scenarios. Her owner, Peter Mares, told Buzzfeed that it started as a stretch and now she can do it on command.
GoalKitty has since been transformed into a classic scene from “The Lion King,” Leo’s new Oscar, a boxing champion and so much more. Her adventures are sure to continue on Facebook, Imgur and Instagram @goalkitty. Here are some of our favorites.
