Last night we finally saw the reunion we were waiting for on Southern Charm: Craig Conover and Gizmo the cat. For anyone who doesn’t know exactly why that’s so exciting, (in summary) Craig had a cat he got with his ex Naomie Olindo and Gizmo went with mommy after their split.
It's sad when any kitty leaves a home and we at Unleashed were really rooting for Craig to add another feline to his family before ... and now we are 100 percent here for him getting a new furry friend after seeing their meetup.
Gizmo acted like an ordinary cat and hid his emotions well when he saw Craig ... but he did hiss at Naomie which we think is kitty speak for "Daddy didn't move to the moon like you told me — he's been right nearby all this time!"
We caught up with Craig to ask about this visit and he shared: “I think that Gizmo is probably a little more annoyed with me because he doesn’t know where I’ve been. He’s excited to see me but he’s also upset because he hasn’t seen me … so he’s like “dude, I want to be excited to see you but I also can’t be because I’m angry at you.'”
Sure, we know quite a few kitties prone to grudges but who is going to watch Craig crafting now?! And why can't his next roommate/BFF have four legs? When we asked exactly what it would take to make our dreams a reality, Craig said "If we come upon an animal that needs rescuing or saving, that’s usually how it happens. I’m not going to go seek out one but if one pops up on our porch one day then, yes, we’ll probably have another animal.”
So there you have it. All it will take is for a kitty to pop up on his doorstep and announce that he's joining the family — much like this chihuahua did with Jason Wimberly — and we will be treated to various art tributes to the cat like we get for Elvis. Craig’s so creative that we’re sure he can make his own paintings and t-shirts featuring his furry friend’s face, which would be the best next project for his crafting time. Universe (and any reading kitties out there), let's make this happen!
