“When he’s not being held, Dougie’s meow can be heard from galaxies far away. So, we thought creatively and decided a BabyBjörn allowed Robert to both hold Dougie and do his job effectively,” the post read. “And, we think it’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve seen, ever.”
Social media users couldn’t agree more, and the post quickly racked up likes and shares. However, Dougie remained uninterested in his newfound viral fame, as he had already met his future mom — a social worker named Ashley Perkins.
“I was looking for a friend for my cat Jax, and there was Dougie,” Perkins tells The Dodo. “Once we saw his age, and his personality type, I knew he was probably going to be a top contender to come home.”
Ashley traveled to ARL, met Dougie, and brought him home the very next day — snuggled in a baby wrap.
