Now there's a space cat emoji, but it's only available on one OS

Rachel Kraus

Choices, choices. What to do when there there are few conceivable reasons to want a device with a Windows 10 operating system — but Windows 10 is the only OS that has introduced possibly the greatest emoji of all ... the ASTRO CAT emoji!!

Emojipedia introduced Astro Cat on Thursday. You make it by combining the the 🐱 Cat Face and 🚀 Rocket emojis, joining them using the "zero width joiner." That's an invisible character used in emoji sequences to create a new character — such as Astro Cat.

And boy is she beautiful.

The drawback is that that cute lil' space kitty only shows up on Windows 10. Sad!

But, considering how tech companies tend to follow each other's lead, in order to create consistency, it might not be long until Astro Cat comes to a keyboard near you.

To meow-finity and beyond!
