Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Today we look back on a video uploaded to video-sharing site YouTube in early 2009, Jörg Kachelmann und Lupin, featuring weather broadcaster Kachelmann and studio cat Lupin.

The video, in German, shows Kachelmann delivering his weather report, when the first glimpse of Lupin appears – his tail moving across the bottom right of the screen.

Kachelmann then picks up the cat and gives him cuddles and scratches, all the while professionally finishing up his report.

Jörg Kachelmann und Lupin has amassed nearly 1,700,000 views on YouTube.

The star of the video, Lupin, shuffled off this mortal coil in 2013, but a Facebook page titled Lupin – The Weather Cat, still exists, with 623 ‘Likes’ at time of writing.

Watch Jörg Kachelmann und Lupin below. An understanding of German is not required to appreciate its cuteness.
