comes home to cat he doesn't know.
by McKinley Corbly
There is nothing like coming home to a loving furry feline who has been
eagerly awaiting your return— unless you have never owned a cat
in the first place.
This is exactly what happened to a user of the Imgur photo sharing site
named Nigel a few weeks ago.
The San Diego, California resident came home from work to find a small
brown cat without a collar or tags sitting on his chair, waiting for
The cat, who Nigel assumes wriggled its way into the house by means of
an open window, began meowing frantically at the sight of him.
The Californian assumed that the cat was hungry, so he went to the store
and bought some pet food and supplies. Needless to say, the mystery feline
was very pleased by the offering and started to meow and purr as it gobbled
up the food.
Nigel then started canvassing his neighborhood in search of the mystery
cat’s owner. Strangely, no one said that they were missing a cat.
He then took the feline, who Nigel temporarily dubbed Lil Gato, to the
vet to see if he was microchipped. Not only did the cat have zero records
of a previous owner, but he also had worms and fleas.
After Nigel paid to have the cat treated, he started asking his neighbors
if anyone had owned a kitten or a mother cat that had given birth recently.
Again, no luck.
Finally, Nigel accepted that the little cat had simply adopted him as
his rightful owner. Nigel and Lil Gato, now called Buddy, have become
the best of buds.
Buddy reportedly follows Nigel around the house and takes every opportunity
to snuggle with him – even if it means curling up on top of his
One Imgur user commented on Nigel’s photos, saying: “He chose
you. You are his Forever Dad now … I think you’re a fantastic
person for taking him into your life.”
Another wise comment read: “Cats always know when they will be
While Buddy’s origin story is still a mystery, one thing is for
sure: he is going to have a loving future.
