For as long as we can remember, Liv and Maddie‘s Joey Rooney has only ever worn cats on his clothes.
They were on his shirts, his socks, even his boxers. Anyone remember the Halloween episode and we wore a giant cat head and Joey t-shirt?!
But, where did the cat obsession actually come from? Joey Bragg revealed all!
“Joey and Joey are one in the same. Joey Rooney was the more fun, optimistic, and bright version of me,” he explains to JJJ of his two Joey personas.
“My love of all things cat and kitty attire took over pretty quickly. I came to work in the occasional cat shirt and all of a sudden that was all Joey Rooney wore,” Joey adds.
He jokes later, “I grew up with no less than three cats at one time. I was raised by them. Wasn’t until I was a junior in high school that I realized I wasn’t a feline myself.”
So, there you go! That’s where his cat obsession came from.
