This V. Wise Cat Understands How Hard It Is To Be An Artist Today

"Sometimes people ask me, is it harder to be a director because you're a cat? I mean, sure, sometimes it's hard to get a director to take you seriously when you have paws instead of hands or whatever. But most of the people I meet are honestly really great."

This is Emily. She's a cat; a lady cat, to be specific. And an aspiring filmmaker. And she gets it.

She knows what it's like to compare yourself to your peers and hate yourself for it. She understands having big ideas but no cash or time to make it happen. She gets it when you spend hours stalking success stories on Twitter and IMDB and dive headfirst into a shame spiral. She's a smart kitty.

This wise feline is the brainchild of Los Angeles-based filmmaker Yulin Kuang. If Marcel the Shell and Paw Paw from The Future had a very creative offspring, she'd be it.

If she's not already taken, we'd really like her to be our mentor. Preach, girl.
