Sweet kitty. Good kitty. Silly kitty.
OK, that's all the sympathy the feline becoming known around the Internet as "Cleo-catra" is gonna get: She's doing just fine, and that means we can let the fur fly.
Seriously, look at this glamour puss: Curiosity may not have killed this cat, but it has sure made her life con-fur-sing lately. As a Reddit user noted while posting this purr-cture, his friend's cat got its head "stuck in a vase, freaked out, broke the vase, and was left with this."
Which actually is pretty hiss-sterical (something we can say since it appears Cleocatra is under medical supervision now). She looks like the spitting image of Bastet, a goddess in ancient Egypt who was often represented as a woman with the head of a cat, or lioness, with heavy neckwear. Or one of the cats who were also worshipped, anyway.
Naturally, Redditors could not pass up this purr-fect opportunity to litter the site with jokes and puns:
"Your friend's cat has transcended the bindings of mere mortals and has become a deity," wrote one.
"I saw that joke coming from a Nile away," replied another.
"Tut, tut, let's not start a pun thread," came a third.
"This is starting to look like a pyramid scheme," wrote a fourth.
Hey, don't be a sourpuss, we say. It's no cat-astrophe. Get yer claws out: the paw-sibilities are endless!
