Winston Takes Weekly Selfies with Ferguson
Season 4, Episode 22
The Ferguson Moment: Winston dramatically reveals to the gang that he takes weekly selfies with Ferguson, and proceeds to scroll through them while laughing to himself. The conversation includes Winnie the Bish loudly proclaiming "If I were off my rocker, would I take a weekly selfie with my cat?"
Why It's Perfect: Look through the photos on any cat lover's phone. Seriously, do it. At least half of them will be of a cat. Do you have a cat? Take out your phone. Open the camera roll. Be honest with yourself. How many cat pictures are in there?
Winston Reminds the Gang They're Missing Out Not Maximizing Their Relationships with Ferguson
Season 4, Episode 18
The Ferguson Moment: After being teased by his roommates for having a cat, Winston reminds them they all, in fact, live with a cat, but he is the only one who really enjoys it.
Why It's Perfect: Look, if you are not spending personal leisure time with a cat, you just don't get it. If you don't take the time to get to know the cat in your house, then it's your loss. Because, oh, the stories they could tell. It's kind of like having a roommate who's always high - you hate it because of the smell and the mess, but if you were high, would you really care?
Winston Refers to Jess as Ferguson's Sister
Season 5, Episode 2
The Ferguson Moment: While Winston is brushing Ferguson, Jess admits to him that she's in love with her boyfriend's parents, but doesn't like her boyfriend. Angry and disappointed, Winston tells Ferguson to clear his schedule, because he "needs to talk to [Ferguson's] sister." He also asks Ferguson whether he's been hanging around the wharf, because he's got a big knot in his fur.
Why It's Perfect: Cats are part of your family, just like everyone living in the house, and should be addressed as such! They can be children, siblings, even grandchildren. No matter what, cats deserve a spot in the family tree.

Why It's Perfect: As a cat lover, you need to believe your cat understands, or at least enjoys, the songs you sing to her. Come, cats just get it. They understand. Because there are so, so many songs to be sung, and they are sung so, so often. Cats are the perfect audience. You feel better singing to them than you would in front a packed house at Carnegie Hall.
