The internet has gone down after a cat owner shared how she accidentally bought the wrong cat into the house.
In the video, the woman opens her door to see her cat inside. Shocked, she says, “George. I thought you were free, I have a cat in my car.”
She turns, walks to her car and opens the door to a… identical cat in her car. Behind the camera, she says, “I stole someone’s cat. That’s not George. Why does he look like George?”
With more than 630,000 likes and thousands of comments, TikTok users headed to their reactions to the woman’s accident.
“That’s the laugh of a woman with a nervous breakdown,” joked one commenter. Another added: “That disbelief smile is so cute.”
After opening the car door to reveal the identical cat, the “hijacked” party looks straight into the camera and lets out a loud meow.
One commenter joked: “The way he yells like ‘I told you I wasn’t George, take me to my mom right away or I’ll call the police.'” Another TikToker wrote: “I can’t stop laughing. You have made my day.”
“You now have twins,” one commenter wrote. Another said: “I want all the cats.”
According to the nonprofit American Humane Association, one in three dogs and cats in the US go missing at some point in their lives. The Coalition for Reuniting Pets and Families has also said that less than 23 percent of missing pets… reunited with their owners.
“Omg put it back where you found it,” one user joked. While another joked: “His long-lost twin brother was found.”
In a later response, a viewer of the now viral video asked, “So…um, what’s the plan? Are you returning the cat? Are you posting on social media to find its owners?”
In response, Tiktoker km.queenx shared another video of how she freed the cat from her car. In the comments section, the original poster explained, “I live in a townhouse complex. I found him in the complex, so he’ll be all right.”
The cat that some on the video-sharing app called a “spare cat” went back to his rightful home in the distance.

A woman in 2021 sparked discussion online after claiming she swapped her wife’s cat with an identical, better-behaved cat.
“It’s been 6 years since. We got married 4 years ago,” the woman explains in a viral reddit after. “We still have the swapped cat. It matches the name of the original cat. My wife doesn’t know anything. She loves this cat and brags about how much better behaved she is.”
