A redhead cat sleeping in its owner’s robe is melting hearts across the internet after being left behind by man’s ex for being “mean”.
The viral Reddit post is captioned, “Ex left the cat because she was mean. Look at this absolute monster sleeping in my robe this morning,” and it evoked a lot of reactions along with the photo.
The post, shared to the Cats subreddit, has garnered 9,500 likes since it was shared by u/barrelsofmeat on March 5th.
The image showed the Redditor from nose down in a blue robe tucked into his auburn cat with his eyes closed. The cat looked quite comfortable and content in its owner’s arms. One side of the robe was draped over the furry cat, who rested her arms on her owner’s arm.
According to Statista, 45.3 million households in the United States owned a cat in 2021. A total of 69 million households owned a dog.
Over 200 people commented on the post, and people seemed to appreciate the connection the man and cat share, while some are fixated on the Redditor’s title about their ex-partner.
Some viewers had comments about the man’s ex versus the cat. “I wonder if the ex was actually the mean one,” one Redditor suggested. The original poster (OP) wrote back, “Well, they didn’t always have the best chemistry, that’s for sure.”
One Redditor felt everything was working as it should. “Looks like a happy ending all round,” they said.
While some viewers had thoughts about the cat after reading the title. “Cats will return love when they feel it, but if they don’t, they won’t pretend to have it,” said one viewer.
Some people had comments like, “How can an innocent animal be mean?” Another called the cat “so adorable.”
One viewer admitted they “can practically hear the purr… Looks like you won the breakup.” Beautiful animal.”
Another Redditor thought the ex ended up serving its purpose, which “was for you and the cat to find each other.”
One user joked, calling the cat a “monster” and insisting it was “beautiful.” They added: “Thank god your ex is your ex. I couldn’t let down a heartthrob like that. Now you are both happy and that is what matters.”
Other appreciative comments included statements like “You won the lottery man” and “I think it feels safe in your arms, how adorable.”
