We all need some light relief now and then, and that relief comes in the form of Betty Boo, a cat who works in a hair salon. In a time when humans seem to be somewhat of a letdown, it’s reassuring to know our feline friends are doing their bit to keep morale high.
Almost eight years ago, Australian hair salon worker Chris Guglielmi found an adorable but sadly abandoned kitten who was just two months old, and took her to a vet to get all cleaned up and in healthy shape.
But she didn’t drop her to a shelter or put her back out on the street – she took her home and became her full-time cat mom, and the rest is history.
Naming her Betty Boo, Guglielmi went the whole hog with giving her a whole persona and creating her an Instagram account, which now enjoys over 1000 followers, and cuteness aplenty.
Since Guglielmi set up her very own hair salon, BABAR, five years ago, Betty was sure to be along for the ride, not missing a single day, and now her Insta is chock full of posts of her adorably purring in the laps of customers, be they waiting for their hair treatments, getting their hair washed or relaxing in the chair on their phone.
Check out more of Betty’s exploits below, and enjoy her sassy comments while you’re at it…. we should all be so lucky as to get so much love when we get our hair done.
