๐Ÿ˜บ Cat-Themed Life Hacks for Joobie

The video begins with the hosts discussing their cat Joobie's lack of interest in their previous high-effort projects. They decide to try more accessible cat-related life hacks. The first life hack involves creating a sleeping spot for Joobie by combining her love for shirts and boxes into a 'shirt tent'. They use wire hangers, a cardboard base, and one of their shirts to construct it. After some adjustments and the use of a hot glue gun, they manage to finish the tent. Joobie is initially uninterested but eventually shows some curiosity.

05:01

๐Ÿ˜ธ Testing the Catnip-Infused Shirt Tent

The hosts introduce a catnip spray to encourage Joobie to try the shirt tent. Initially hesitant, Joobie eventually enters the tent, and the hosts express their excitement as she seems to enjoy it. They also discuss the possibility of using the tent as a toy and praise the life hack for its cost-effectiveness and cleverness. The video then transitions into a different life hack involving a kitchen glove and hot glue to create a grooming tool for cats.

10:01

๐Ÿ˜พ The Kitchen Glove Grooming Life Hack

The hosts attempt to create a cat grooming tool using a kitchen glove and hot glue. They apply hot glue to the glove to mimic the bristles of a brush. After letting it dry, they test the glove on Joobie. The results are mixed; while the glove picks up some fur, it's not as effective as a proper cat brush. The hosts compare the effectiveness of the glued glove to a silicone brush and find the latter to be significantly better. Despite the limited success, they acknowledge that the glove somewhat worked and was a quick project.

15:02

๐Ÿ˜ผ Creating a Portable Cat Pouch from a Sweatshirt

The next life hack involves repurposing an old sweatshirt into a cat pouch for carrying Joobie around. The hosts make a semicircle cut-out from a microfiber fabric and sew it onto the sweatshirt, leaving an opening at the top. They test the pouch with Joobie, who is skeptical at first but eventually settles in. The pouch is deemed a success for its ability to keep Joobie cozy and the host's hands free. However, the large size of the pouch and Joobie's initial reluctance add a humorous touch to the segment.

20:03

๐Ÿ˜น The Failed Cat Pouch and the Introduction of Squarespace

The hosts face disappointment when Joobie rejects the cat pouch after some initial interest. Despite the effort put into creating it, they accept the outcome with good humor. They then segue into a commercial for Squarespace, promoting its services for building websites, selling products, and setting up online courses. The hosts highlight the platform's ease of use, built-in tools, and professional templates as advantages for potential users.

25:05

๐Ÿ˜พ Attaching a Brush to Joobie's Chair

The video continues with a life hack where the hosts attach a small brush to one of Joobie's chairs in the hope that she will enjoy brushing against it. Despite their enthusiasm, Joobie shows little interest in the brush. They experiment with the brush's orientation and compare it to a regular cat brush. The hack is not very successful, but the hosts remain positive and open to Joobie using it in the future.

๐ŸŽจ Creating Art with Joobie the Cat

The final segment involves creating a piece of art using Joobie's natural instincts. They place a canvas inside a plastic bag and cover it with Joobie's favorite treat, Churu, and various colors of flow acrylic paint. Joobie walks on the bag, stepping in the paint and treat, effectively creating a unique piece of art. The hosts are amused by the process and later reveal the finished artwork, giving it a playful critique.

Highlights

The creators have made various high-effort projects for their cat Joobie, but she has only enjoyed a few.

They are attempting more accessible cat-related projects in the form of life hacks.

Joobie enjoys sleeping and has a preference for sleeping on shirts and in covered spaces like tents.

A life hack is introduced to create a shirt tent using a cardboard base and wire hangers.

The shirt tent is designed to smell like the owners and provide Joobie with a covered and cozy space.

Hot glue is used to secure the structure of the shirt tent, demonstrating its versatility as a life hack tool.

A twist tie is used as a quick fix to stabilize the tent, showcasing the improvisational nature of life hacks.

Joobie initially shows interest in the shirt tent, indicating that the life hack may be successful.

Catnip is used to encourage Joobie to explore and use the shirt tent, highlighting the use of cat behavior in life hacks.

The creators give the shirt tent a perfect score (10 out of 10) for its use of readily available materials and Joobie's positive response.

A kitchen glove is modified with hot glue to serve as a makeshift grooming tool for Joobie, the long-haired cat.

The hot-glue covered glove is tested on Joobie and compared to her regular silicone brush, with mixed results.

A sweatshirt is modified with a microfiber pouch to create a portable cat carrier, demonstrating creativity in life hacks.

Despite the effort put into sewing the pouch, Joobie does not take to the new carrier, showing the unpredictability of cat behavior.

The creators discuss the potential of using a sewing machine but opt for a hand-sewing approach due to comfort and control.

An old brush is attached to Joobie's chair using adhesive, creating a new interactive element for her to explore.

Joobie shows curiosity but not sustained interest in the brush on her chair, suggesting that the life hack has limited success.

The creators use flow acrylic paint in a plastic bag with Joobie's favorite treat to create a unique piece of cat art.

Joobie's painting session results in a colorful, abstract piece, which the creators judge to be a moderately successful life hack.

Transcripts

00:00

We have made a lot of projects

00:01

for our cat Joobie on this channel.

00:04

They're very high effort, and she has liked very few of 'em.

00:08

So today we're gonna be trying more accessible

00:10

cat-related projects in the form of life hacks.

00:13

(laughs) She's just licking her bed.

00:16

KATELYN: You know-

00:17

Hey, whatever brings her joy. (laughs)

00:18

Exactly, and I have gathered several life hacks

00:21

that I hope will bring her joy.

00:22

Evan has no idea what they are.

00:24

Are you ready to look at the first one?

00:26

Yeah.

00:27

This video is brought to you by Squarespace,

00:28

the all-in-one platform for all your website needs.

00:30

(air whooshes) So what is one of the things

00:32

that Joobie spends most of her time doing?

00:34

Sleeping.

00:36

And what's one of her favorite types of places

00:38

to sleep in, other than a box?

00:40

On our shirts?

00:43

Yes.

00:44

Combine that with one of her other favorite ways to sleep.

00:48

Shirt and box.

00:50

I said not a box.

00:52

Shirt.

00:53

She likes our shirts. Yes, she likes our shirts.

00:54

She also likes being covered.

00:56

Like a tent, yeah. Like a tent.

00:59

A shirt tent.

01:01

No way!

01:03

Okay, yes, I love crafting things

01:05

with like shirt hangers. Wire.

01:08

(both laugh)

01:10

Cardboard, yes. Cardboard base.

01:12

So I guess there is a little bit of a box element.

01:14

Oh, and a shirt?

01:15

No, I don't know why it says your ex's T-shirt.

01:16

I don't know why it's throwing shade like that.

01:18

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, this is genius.

01:20

This is genius. Right?

01:22

Isn't this kind of clever? Joob, you're leaving

01:23

at just the wrong point.

01:24

This is amazing. And they go

01:26

through the little shirt hole. Oh.

01:28

And it's gonna smell like us 'cause it's our shirt,

01:31

and it's a little tent so she'll be covered.

01:33

And it's got a cardboard bottom.

01:35

Yeah.

01:36

Like I think this is a really good idea.

01:37

EVAN: Let's try it.

01:38

(air whooshes)

01:39

So, I have some options for us.

01:40

I have a couple wire hangers.

01:42

So I have a Katelyn T-shirt that is Joobie themed,

01:45

and an Evan T-shirt.

01:46

I think it's probably gonna be Evan T-shirt size.

01:48

That is Joobie themed. Now one thing

01:49

that's deceptive, these aren't the same.

01:52

(gasps) I thought the wire went all the way through.

01:56

No, do we have another one of these?

02:01

(jazz music) Hmm.

02:06

Hmm.

02:09

Hmm.

02:11

(Katelyn nervously laughs)

02:15

(Katelyn makes unsure noises)

02:18

Hmm.

02:21

We don't have any more wire hangers.

02:24

I mean, I guess we can buy them.

02:28

No.

02:30

(laughs) Somewhere in here I think is our answer.

02:37

Oh my god.

02:39

Oh, wait, I see something shiny.

02:41

(both laugh)

02:43

Yes, there, there. Ah, yes.

02:47

EVAN: Yes, it might not be like 100% true

02:50

to life hacks shown, but it's like the same spirit.

02:53

Yeah.

02:54

And did you ever do like crafts with this

02:55

when you were a kid?

02:56

I'm sure I did, but I don't have a ton of memory of it,

02:58

but you seemed very enthusiastic about it.

02:59

Oh my gosh, I made all sorts of things with this,

03:02

phone holders, camera tripods, stands for books,

03:06

things to hold books open.

03:08

So I know you created a lot of things out of duct tape.

03:11

Was this like the bones,

03:12

and you used the duct tape around it?

03:14

Often, yeah.

03:15

'Cause I mean, like how many of these

03:16

did you have access to when you were a kid?

03:18

Unlimited. Unlimited.

03:19

I don't know if my mom ever worried like,

03:21

"Where are they going?

03:22

"How are they disappearing?"

03:24

It was me.

03:25

All right, so I mean, yeah,

03:26

that makes a decent sized tent loop.

03:27

Yeah, let's match that link for the other piece of wire.

03:30

Yep, when did we get this?

03:32

What project did we get this for?

03:36

I don't know, man.

03:38

All right, there you go.

03:40

So, wait, is this too small? Whoa.

03:42

Oh? I think that's perfect.

03:43

That's great.

03:44

That's a pretty good Joob size.

03:45

Now they just pushed it down.

03:47

(wire smacks)

03:48

Oh, shoot.

03:49

I think let's hot glue it though.

03:50

I think, yeah,

03:51

I think we should maybe hot glue it.

03:53

All right, so bring out the hot glue gun.

03:54

The solver of all issues.

03:56

Generous glob. Generous.

03:58

EVAN: There you go.

04:00

I'm trying to follow this the best we can.

04:02

Yeah. Oop, looks pretty dry.

04:05

Let's see how stable this is.

04:06

KATELYN: This is with no weight on it.

04:08

Eh, I have concerns. Okay.

04:11

So I think we should fix it, but do it hack style.

04:15

Oh, a twist tie. A twist tie.

04:17

I think let's put a twist tie right here.

04:20

Instead of my ex-boyfriend's shirt,

04:22

it'll be my current husband's shirt.

04:24

Well, actually in a way, you are an ex-boyfriend

04:27

because you used to be my boyfriend.

04:29

You are no longer my boyfriend.

04:30

You are my husband.

04:32

I'm your ex-boyfriend. You're my ex-boyfriend.

04:34

You're my ex-girlfriend.

04:36

Pleased to meet you.

04:37

(both laugh)

04:38

Oh my gosh, yes. I just realized like,

04:41

what do you do at the back of it?

04:42

They didn't show that. They didn't show the back.

04:44

Look at that though, guys.

04:46

His was kind of like- Ours is like a lot floppier

04:48

than there's- Shh, look at that.

04:51

KATELYN: Yeah, I mean, it looks like a little cat house.

04:53

EVAN: It looks like a little cat house,

04:54

and it cost us $0. Yeah.

04:57

Let's get Joobie in here and see what she thinks.

04:59

Okay, Joobie.

05:00

Joobie. Ooh, yes.

05:04

Oh my gosh, she's rushing.

05:05

What's this? Yeah, Joobie,

05:06

that's for you.

05:07

KATELYN: It looks a little small

05:08

looking at it next to her.

05:09

I'm not gonna lie, it's a little tiny.

05:11

EVAN: But she likes small containers.

05:12

KATELYN: She does, she does.

05:13

You know what's funny though?

05:14

I'm not as like concerned because it didn't take that long.

05:17

No, but please, still, Joobie, please like it.

05:19

KATELYN: Joobie, come on.

05:20

(relaxed music)

05:22

JOOB: Meh.

05:24

Use the spray. Okay.

05:26

We have catnip in a bottle.

05:28

(audience gasps)

05:30

(laughs) Play with the back.

05:32

Make like scratching noises. I am.

05:33

EVAN: Yes, yes, yes, she's going.

05:39

She's like looking around,

05:40

but it's moving the whole thing.

05:41

Sike. Are you not entertained?

05:45

Oh, oh. Yes, yes, yes.

05:46

Film, film, film.

05:47

(gasps) She just needed the entrance raised.

05:49

Go in.

05:50

Go in, baby.

05:51

No, you're halfway there. Pranked.

05:54

EVAN: Oh, that's a good toy.

05:55

More catnip 'cause I think when she gets in there,

05:57

she's gonna like it.

05:58

All right, let's just be patient.

05:59

Okay, be patient.

06:01

(relaxed music continues)

06:09

You thought. No.

06:11

Joobie, it's shirts and cardboard.

06:15

She came back.

06:17

Where's the camera?

06:19

I think we should ignore her.

06:20

Okay, I'll be casual.

06:23

(calm jazz music)

06:32

She's in, and she gave a little purr.

06:33

Can you film her face?

06:35

She's sticking her head through this sleeve.

06:38

Here, you get it, you get it.

06:39

I'll freak out too much.

06:40

This is the moment. Her head's over here.

06:41

Head's over here.

06:45

Yes, yes, yes. (Katelyn laughs)

06:47

Is this her head now? Yes.

06:49

Yeah, it's moving over.

06:50

Get it, get it, get it.

06:51

(calm jazz music continues)

06:54

KATELYN: It's just darkness.

06:56

EVAN: Oh, her head's over here now.

06:57

KATELYN: Oh, she keeps rotating.

06:59

EVAN: Gonna have to boost the brightness a lot.

07:01

Yeah, yeah, go for it. Oh, there she is.

07:04

Wait, wait, there she is.

07:05

Oh yeah, there she is,

07:06

little Joobie. Is chill.

07:08

KATELYN: It seems like she's laying down

07:09

based on the curve. Yeah, she is laying down.

07:11

You can come over here and see.

07:14

Oh, a baby. Yes, yes, yes.

07:17

I'm just gonna give it a rating right now.

07:18

Come on, come on in.

07:21

This is what life hacks should be, 10 outta 10.

07:24

I agree, it's a 10 out of 10.

07:26

It used all stuff you already have.

07:28

It wasn't like more expensive than a store-bought version.

07:30

And it's smart. And it's smart,

07:32

and she likes it. I can't believe it.

07:33

This is mind blowing.

07:34

And she likes it. She likes it.

07:35

She likes it. Yes.

07:37

(bell dings) (air whooshes)

07:39

So with this life hack, I think it's something

07:40

that's gonna work, and I think Joobie will like it.

07:43

And it involves a quintessential life hack ingredient.

07:48

Hot glue. Hot glue.

07:49

(laughs) All right.

07:51

All right, kitchen glove, hot glue.

07:55

Is this to pet her with?

07:56

It's to pet her with.

07:57

And it's to like brush her

07:59

so you can like thin out her fur.

08:01

You know, especially as a long hair cat,

08:03

like they need brushing.

08:05

Now, I'm doubtful about the brush they're showing on here

08:08

'cause if you look at that, it had black fur,

08:10

it had tufts of white.

08:11

It's like they took clumps and just attached it on.

08:14

Yeah, I think the after of the glove is definitely fake,

08:17

but I think it'll work.

08:18

I know the hot glue is a little grippy and sticky

08:21

because I actually use a life hack

08:22

where I put it on my hangers

08:23

for like shirts that slip. Yeah.

08:26

So I'm excited to try it.

08:27

Let's see, and here's all of the supplies.

08:29

Oh, yeah. Wait, baby.

08:31

This is just...

08:34

I think it's supposed to be thicker.

08:36

No, it's the same.

08:37

It's the same kind of glove.

08:38

EVAN: I think that's meant to be

08:40

like a thick kitchen glove. No, it doesn't need

08:41

to be a thick kitchen glove.

08:42

I think it's better if it's thin

08:43

'cause you can like go like this on her tail.

08:45

You can get like better grip.

08:48

I don't know, cat grip. (chuckles)

08:50

Here, we can try two different gloves if you want.

08:52

We have some thick kitchen ones.

08:54

I can't believe you're judging my life hack materials.

08:57

I just think that they meant for this type of glove.

09:00

Yeah, but look at this, see?

09:01

Yeah, but but look at this. How is that different?

09:05

Exactly. (Evan laughs)

09:06

So why are you making fun of my gloves?

09:09

I think this is gonna be perfect. (snickers)

09:15

Video evidence suggests otherwise.

09:17

Here, while the hot glue heats up, we'll do a fur tour.

09:19

Look, look at that.

09:20

Look at that tail.

09:21

Look at those cheek floofs.

09:23

(Evan coughs)

09:24

Do you know that this video will be coming out

09:26

right after Joob's birthday?

09:28

Will she be 14? She's gonna be 14.

09:31

She just a 14-year-old kitten.

09:33

(sneezes) It is now also a good time to point out

09:36

that I am highly allergic to cats.

09:39

Evan is allergic.

09:40

But Joobie's worth it. Yeah.

09:41

EVAN: All right, go for it.

09:42

Just do little globs.

09:44

KATELYN: Yeah, they just kind of did little nub.

09:47

What if the hot glue doesn't stick?

09:49

EVAN: Well, it'd be more false advertising

09:51

by these craft channels.

09:54

KATELYN: Our hot glue is dry.

09:56

This feels pretty nice.

09:57

Let's see, do they pop off or anything?

09:59

They're not popping off.

10:00

They are sticky.

10:01

Do you hear? Yeah.

10:02

Hello, Joobie. (both laugh)

10:05

Yeah, what do you think?

10:06

It feels grippy. Hey, Joobie.

10:08

KATELYN: I wanna give her like a few good pets,

10:10

and then let's look.

10:11

EVAN: I had to turn up the brightness whole bunch

10:12

to be able to see her. I know.

10:13

EVAN: The glove is glowing.

10:15

You are glowing.

10:17

Joobie is barely illuminated. Barely visible.

10:19

EVAN: Wait, wait, let me turn down the brightness.

10:21

Is there anything? There's like a few hairs.

10:25

EVAN: Not many.

10:26

Not at all what it showed in the video.

10:28

Let me try this one.

10:29

So you didn't capture the putting on process.

10:31

Oh. It's on.

10:33

It's a glove. It was easy.

10:35

But how does it work for petting?

10:37

Oh, Joobie wasn't as crazy about this one.

10:40

EVAN: (laughs) She looks so disgruntled.

10:42

She looks kind of annoyed. She's like tolerating it.

10:45

KATELYN: So that's about the same amount.

10:47

I think I did about 10 strokes with the orange.

10:49

It looks like about a similar amount of hair.

10:51

EVAN: Oh, some are starting to fall off.

10:53

KATELYN: (gasps) You know what, this glove,

10:56

it's stiffer. Because it's more rigid.

10:57

Yeah. Yeah.

10:58

Oh my gosh, you were right.

10:59

You chose the better glove.

11:00

I was wrong.

11:01

Well, anyways, let's see how these gloves compare

11:03

to her silicone brush.

11:05

I did about 10 strokes. Well also with that,

11:08

like you're going deeper into her fur.

11:10

She's starting to get annoyed.

11:11

Already, this is like 10 times as much.

11:13

Oh my gosh. Look at that.

11:14

EVAN: So what they did is they just went like this.

11:18

KATELYN: That's 100% what they did.

11:21

This is $10.

11:22

Okay.

11:23

Relative to this as a standard,

11:25

I think this is like a two.

11:27

I think it's like a four.

11:29

She didn't fully reject it.

11:31

It somewhat worked.

11:32

It was pretty fast.

11:32

Compromise at three.

11:34

Okay, compromise at three.

11:35

(air whooshes)

11:36

I'm ready. So this next hack

11:39

is for Joobie, but it's also for me.

11:41

EVAN: Oh no, sewing?

11:43

[Narrator Katelyn] You can make something really cute

11:44

from an old sweatshirt and a piece of microfiber.

11:49

Draw a semicircle on the fabric.

11:51

I like the voiceover.

11:52

It sounds very familiar. Thank you.

11:54

I had to recreate it

11:55

'cause without the voiceover,

11:56

you don't really get the full experience,

11:57

but, you know, copyright music.

11:58

Copyright music, okay.

12:00

[Narrator Katelyn] Cut it out.

12:01

Sew it to the sweatshirt.

12:03

Sewing, you're gonna sew? Use a sewing machine,

12:06

leave the upper part of the seam undone.

12:09

Should we try it on?

12:10

Put your cat in the warm pocket

12:12

and go outside. Look at that.

12:14

[Narrator Katelyn] This is a great way to go on a walk

12:15

with a kitty.

12:17

You are stylish.

12:18

Your pet is cozy.

12:20

Everyone is happy.

12:23

All right, so, baby, have you used a sewing machine?

12:25

We're not gonna use a sewing machine.

12:26

All right, let's see what we got.

12:27

Yeah, I had to weigh this box down

12:29

because everything's quite puffy.

12:30

Oh my gosh.

12:31

I have some options.

12:32

First off, we need a hoodie,

12:33

and I wanted one that wasn't black.

12:35

90% of our hoodies are black.

12:37

Yep, you went with the salami from our previous tie dye.

12:40

I don't have any non-black options.

12:41

Yes, this is my tie-dyed meat hoodie.

12:43

This, words are hard, floral hoodie is a large.

12:46

So if you wanna also be able to wear it-

12:49

If I'm looking at the other material,

12:51

I'm not gonna get anywhere close to this.

12:52

I thought the pocket we should make out of fur!

12:57

But that's what she does too.

12:58

I mean, she calls it microfiber, but it's fur.

12:59

It's a fur fabric.

13:01

This is much more fur than what she did,

13:03

but I love your vision. Thank you.

13:05

Now, are you gonna staple it on?

13:07

No, I'm gonna sew it by hand,

13:10

and this is the sacrifice that I'm willing

13:13

to make in order to carry Joob around

13:15

like a kangaroo baby.

13:16

Babe, you know we have a sewing machine.

13:18

I don't want to use it.

13:19

I'm scared. (Evan laughs)

13:21

I can do it by hand.

13:23

This is gonna take so long.

13:24

No.

13:26
