When she got off the phone, she turned to me and said, "That was Channel 9 news. They want to come to the house Wednesday morning and interview us about Sauerkraut." My first thought? ...I need a haircut - I look like Nick Nolte's mug shot. My second thought: Holy cow.
Humom had just the week before been interviewed by the Australian podcast The Cat Lady, and that podcast will air on Friday, February 20th, so the television news story was a very pleasant second act to the social media exposure.
And then it got even better. Between Wednesday's interview and the release of the story on tv and online, there were posts about Sauerkraut on BuzzFeed, LoveMeow, I Iz Cat, and the French website meltyBuzz. (Saurkraut aime la Française!)
Who knows what's next for Sauerkraut? I asked Sauerkraut, and she responded, "hey Pops, as long as I have a comfy place to lay my noggin."
