Jazzy: Nazem Kadri’s cat who no one wants to follow on Instagram

Nazem Kadri's cat "Jazzy" has an Instagram account, which doesn't necessarily fly with every one of his Maple Leafs teammates.

Did you know Nazem Kadri’s cat, Jazzy, has an Instagram account?

Now you do and, surprise surprise, she’s a Maple Leafs fan.

Ironically, none of the Maple Leafs seem to be fans of Jazzy — either that or Kadri’s teammates are using the fact his pet has its own social media account to give the centreman a hard time.

“He got it last year and decided to put it public this year apparently. I’m not going to follow though. Just not a fan of that cat, I don’t know why.” joked Jake Gardiner. “I’m just joking. I don’t really care. But he’s pumped about it.”

Super rookies Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews also said they don’t follow Jazzy on Instagram.

“I don’t follow Jazzy Cat on Instagram, but I might have to here soon just so I can keep up with what’s going on in her life. It’s very interesting,” Matthews said. “He’s always talking about this cat non-stop and so I think he just decided to make an Instagram.”

It’s all fun and games until it has a real impact on your team. But a cat with its own Instagram account can’t have a big impact on an NHL team, can it?

Well, it can if your best player is allergic to them. Keep Jazzy away from Matthews!

“I’m not a big cat guy,” Matthews said. “I don’t know if I’m allergic, but anytime I’m around them I always get stuffy. Maybe a couple years down the line I’ll look to get a dog.”
