Christiane Amanpour On 'Colbert': Talks Egypt, Cats (VIDEO)

Christiane Amanpour was on Tuesday's "Colbert Report" to talk to Stephen Colbert about the Egyptian revolution. She told him that the revolution was a good thing, despite any fears he might have about what will happen next in Egypt.

"People have been asking especially since 9/11, when is this part of the world going to have democracy?" she said. "And the minute they do it everyone goes no, no, no!"

Amanpour also said it was "interesting" that the U.S. was "calling for democracy democracy democracy, and then maybe doesn't like the outcome."

But the highlight of Amanpour's visit was undoubtedly the adorable miniature safari suit she brought for Colbert's psychic cat--and her namesake--"Christiane Aman-purr."
