She’s the cat that has appeared in all of your favorite films and television shows, including "Titanic," "Jurassic Park" and "Game of Thrones." OwlKitty’s acting skills have earned her nearly 300,000 Instagram followers alone.

Now she is making her debut on The Breakdown, a new weekly show on InsideEdition.com

OwlKitty, a 2-year-old cat whose real name is Lizzy, and her human, Tibo Charroppin, live in Portland, Oregon. Charroppin is an animator and filmmaker who started making parody videos featuring his cat for family and friends.

He didn't think things would really go beyond that. “I did not expect it to take off the way that it did. It’s been overwhelming in a good way,” Charroppin told InsideEdition.com.

So what's the secret to his and Lizzy's success? It's all in the timing, said Charroppin. 

“A lot of the time it’s just trying to get these things to go viral, it has to be as quick as possible," he explained. 

Check out the video above to learn more and keep up with both Lizzy and Charroppin on Instagram @owl__kitty.
