It turns out our feline friends may be good for more than smug looks and cuddles after all. Following up on its recent rebrand from Beam, Microsoft's Twitch competitor, Mixer, has outed a humorous new ad that shows just what kitty is up to when you leave the room. Check it out below:

Microsoft promised a big marketing push for the newly rebranded service, and it looks like this ad sets the tone for what we can expect. And while we can't promise kitty will truly have your back should you leave the room in the middle of a virtual firefight, it's a good thought anyway.

As for the cat in the ad: someone get that feline an eSports deal!
