so the other day my mom looked outside and saw my cat and freaked out because he’d escaped so she bribed him back in with a treat and closed the door
then she turned around and saw two of my cat sitting there and realized she’d let in a practically identical stray so she shooed him out again
now my (actual) cat spends HOURS every day with his nose pressed against the window or screen door and the twin cat on the other side and they just hold their paws out to one another and sit there mournfully
it’s actually the most tragic romantic cat love story of all time
my heart. adopt him!
