“I can’t tell if Betty is enjoying the whole Work-From-Home setup or not,” Lyons wrote in an April 9 Facebook post alongside an image of the fluffy cat reclined in his arms as he stood in front of a weather graphic. “As you can see, she’s a high-strung, nervous wreck !”
The image went viral, and Lyons subsequently posted a video showing the broadcast, along with Betty’s behind-the-scenes antics
Betty’s fame continued to climb, appearing in a later broadcast giving herself a tongue bath as Lyons discussed weather in Evansville.
“You’re tuning in to watch the cat, I realize that, but it’s going to be cold tonight,” Lyons said.
