Canadian recording artist, Joel Thomas Zimmerman (aka Deadmau5) is famous for his house music and for his love of the adorable Prof. Meowingtons, PhD. The kitty appears regularly on Zimmerman’s social media accounts and connects rather well with the producer’s mouse image. Meowingtons has always reveled in his “only child” status, but this has all come to a grinding halt as Deadmau5 has brought home a new kitten.

Deadmau5 introduced the new kitten, still in its carrier, during a video posted on Instagram. The tiny kitten, named Noob, gave a few precious and quiet mews that melted everyone’s hearts.

In a subsequent video, Zimmerman captured Meowingtons’ first encounter with Noob. After a few curious sniffs and hesitant steps, Meowingtons saunters away from his new sibling. Disinterested or overcome with emotion? We may never know.

Meowington is going to have to accept the fact that there’s a new kitten in the Deadmau5 house. Delightfully, Deadmau5’s fans will get to follow the adventures of two cats!
