Listening to its owner's words of reconciliation, Mimi hilariously hopped onto her gaming chair and made herself comfortable. Giving a bit more insight into how Mimi has been feeling, Poki mentioned:
"You can tell she's been a little aggravated, per se."
Her new cat came over to the streamer, who greeted him:
"Hi, little sweetie. Hello!"
After watching the internet personality embrace the newest member of her family, Mimi let out a loud cry, expressing her agitation even further. The Twitch streamer said:
"Hey, it's okay. He's just a baby. He does not know anything! You are the boss, Mimi. You're the boss!"
She let the kitten let go and laughed while looking at Mimi's antics. Explaining how Mimi feels, Pokimane said:
"She is like, you used to hold me like that. Baby, I'll hold you anytime you want! I love you. Yes, and I will prove it to you that I still love you. Bro, she just monkaStare'd (Twitch emoticon) at me. Here, look at the chat or something."
Noticing what the new cat is doing, the online starlet mentioned:
"Oh, he (the new cat) is beneath the chair, and they're just staring at each other"
