And just like that, Goldman's day had been brightened by the unwitting kitty.
"I guess you can definitely say he brought me joy while I was walking home. It was mood-lifting, most definitely," she said. "Laughing that hard that early in the morning makes the rest of the day much more positive."
Thankfully for the rest of us, Goldman was kind enough to spread that holiday cheer by snapping photos of the furry Scrooge. After all, 'tis the season for joy, mirth and merriment — even if from a grumpy cat.
"A good animal pic can cure anything," Goldman said.
