Are you familiar with Topic? I wasn’t.
Topic is an ambitious new entertainment & storytelling studio from First Look Media, dedicated to working with creators at the forefront of culture.
Huck and Harlow’s Dad’s Dad emailed me because he subscribes to Topic, and read an article, “Valley of the Ragdolls” by Elisabeth Donnelly where Floppycats was mentioned.
He thought I knew about it, but I did not and it was a nice surprise to me!

“A Kansas City-based business owner and “cat product influencer” named Jenny Dean has developed a blog and YouTube channel called “Floppycats,” and the site, she claims, has been “Uniting Ragdoll Cat Lovers Worldwide Since 2008.” Dean has uploaded hundreds of videos with titles in English and Japanese. In one, “How to Do Airplane with Your Ragdoll Cat,” she takes her cat Charlie, lies down, and perches his body on her feet before lifting him up to the sky so that he’s balancing, airplane-style, as she moves her legs back and forth. “It’s a really good ab workout,” she promises. The cat remains remarkably still, with his tail mildly twitching for balance.”
Here’s the video she refers to:
Thank you to Topic for including us =).
