A visit to the hair salon can feel super luxurious … or, for some, super stressful. Between having scissors near your head, awkward chatting with a stylist all the while hoping that your hair turns out exactly how you want it, what should be a relaxing experience can sometimes be anxiety-producing. That’s where Betty Boo comes in.

Betty Boo is a “salon cat” (like a bodega cat but much, much better) who lives at Babar Hair, a Melbourne, Australia hair salon. But Betty is more than a typical cat skulking in the corner. She’ll sit on your lap mid-cut and sleep on you during a shampoo. The salon even has “Betty’s Blog” on their website, where Betty “writes” about new goings-on at Babar Hair.

Betty is clearly queen of the salon, making herself at home among clippings on the floor or right on customers’ laps.

Betty even compliments the customers: “Thanks for the lap Cliffo, I was excited to see you I promise!”

Her (tragically un-updated blog) encompasses salon news like sustainability practices, charitable initiatives, and seasonal style recommendations. As Betty said, “I’m pretty sure I’ll be the first cat to have Kardashian levels of fame – take that Grumpy Cat!”
