Kate McKinnon takes “cat lady” to the next level: The Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live star gushes over her 17-pound cat named Nino Positano in almost every public appearance she makes and normally describes herself as being covered in cat hair, so we’ve gathered together all the funniest things the Ghostbusters actress has said about her feline.
