Sneak Peek: "Shooting Star" | GLEE
I've been a fan of Glee's Lord Tubbington since the talented tabby first appeared as Brittany's smoking cat co-host on her talk show, "Fondue for Two." While he's made a few kitty cameos since then (a recent episode revealed that his guilty pleasure is Scientology), it looks like his moment has finally arrived, as the New Directions prepare to belt out a ballad for the beloved puss in tonight's all new episode.

In the sneak peek for "Shooting Star" (airing Thu. April 11 at 9/8c on Fox), cast member Melissa Benoist (Marley) reveals that Brittany will express her love for Lord T. through a rendition of the Extreme hit, "More Than Words."

Animal trainer Tasha Zamsky says that unlike most feline stars who are treat motivated, Tubbington prefers to work for love (aww!). We also learn that sometimes they have to use a creepy prop kitty as a stand-in on set (and I'm pretty sure it comes alive after everyone has left for the night).
Lord Tubbington is played by Aragon, an 8-year-old, 24 pound Bengal kitty who makes his home in Newport Beach, Calif. In addition to his acting duties, the ambitious feline is also a comedian, social activist, and therapy cat. You can follow him on Facebook here.
