Nothing to add. Well perhaps I can say a few words. The video was made in the area of Causeway Bay, which is a station on the MTR network on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. The station is between Wan Chai and Tin Hau stations on the Island Line. I can tell because if you look in the background at the end of the video you’ll a sign saying Causeway Bay Station.
So we know that it is Hong Kong. This tall man is an exhibitionist and he seems to have adopted a cat to service his exhibitionism. Exhibitionist is “a person who behaves in an extravagant way in order to attract attention”. Yes, that’s this guy.
He likes white and perhaps adopted his cat for that reason. Is it dangerous for the cat? It could be. The cat seems okay but what if he encounters a lot of noise or something else which frightens his cat? His cat could jump off and scram. That would be dangerous. As he is walking around a densely populated street with his cat on his shoulders, for his benefit, you could argue that he is being irresponsible in terms of cat caretaking.
In defence he’d probably say that his cat enjoys it and that he/she has never jumped off. And, of course, he is getting his cat some outside air and excitement. In short he is stimulating his cat. Okay there is a counter argument. However, he’s endangering his cat at the end of the day.
As for the sunglasses on his cat, most cat lovers won’t like to see that. We don’t like to dress up cats. It’s a minor abuse. He is a very tall Asian man. He stands out. He wants to stand out more and has made a big effort to do so. He does not want to be invisible. His cat helps in that quest.
So what’s the cat? We don’t know. There are no white cat breeds other than the Khao Manee and this cat is not one of those. So the cat is probably an all-white Persian. The cat looks like a modern, flat-faced version but not too extreme. The Persian is probably the best known cat breed in the world. In Asia it is probably the favorite cat breed in general.
