Well, apparently a cat shelter McKinnon visited the weekend prior to the sketch's airing was a little offended, and McKinnon's sorry about that.
The cat shelter contacted her following the sketch (which you can watch below) and reproachfully Tweeted at McKinnon, "You don't care about cats. You just came in to do research."
"I would like to issue a formal apology," McKinnon told Seth Meyers on Late Night. "I care very deeply for cats. I was not, in fact, making fun of the employees of that cat shelter, it was a different cat shelter that I had been to years before."
Well. We're glad that's cleared up.
