John Cleese, Taylor Swift and cricket player Kevin Pietersen appeared on The Graham Norton show together in October 2014. Both Cleese and Swift love cats, but when a picture of Olivia, Swift’s Scottish Fold was shown to the crowd, Cleese asked if she were a “proper cat”, announce that Olivia was the “weirdest cat he’d ever seen in his life”. Norton then answers with a picture of Cleese’s enormous long-haired cat, claiming that Olivia was not the weirdest cat he’d ever seen.
I am not a great a massive fan of cats here. ..I’m not a massive fan …I’m in South Africa this time next week on Safari. I like the big cats… I’d prefer to be and probably something people don’t know about me I prefer to be on safari watching animals with animals more than I’d like to be on this sofa or playing cricket.
