Cat-lover Ben Simmons raises his 2 Savannah cats to support #RaiseTheCat

Cat-lover Ben Simmons raises his 2 Savannah cats to support #RaiseTheCat

It all started with a simple tweet at 1:58 p.m.

Ben Simmons asked his Twitter following about the cat.

One hour and 19 minutes later, Simmons decided to participate himself.

With his two Savannah cats.

For those out of the loop, Sixers fan @GipperGrove started the social media movement — one we can surely affirm is one the world has never seen before — in which fans raise their cats after each Sixers win, which there have been plenty of recently.

The Sixers won their third straight game on Friday night, squeaking out a 93-92 win over the Trail Blazers and are now 8-2 in their last 10 games. Joel Embiid is legit, and this team, in Year 4 of The Process, is making basketball great again in Philly. And all of this without Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 overall pick who's still rehabing a Jones fracture in his right foot.

To celebrate Simmons' cat-raising, @GipperGrove pinned this to his Twitter page.

#RaiseTheCat lives on.
