This Cat Fell In Love With A Pillow That Looks Identical To Him

June 13th, 2019

Cats are silly creatures. They have many habits that seem strange to us, like chasing string and relaxing in the weirdest of places. But this cat must be the silliest of them all.

His name is Harry. His mom, Beka, has had him since he was just a little kitty.

The two have become incredibly close. In fact, if Beka ever leaves the room, Harry cries out for her. He’s also slept on her head since he was a kitten, like a cat hat.

But now there’s a third thing in Beka and Harry’s life. It isn’t a living animal, but no one should tell Harry that!

It all began when Beka was out shopping. She found something amazing. It was a pillow that was shaped just like Harry.

The pillow even had the same slightly annoyed expression that Harry always had.

Beka didn’t hesitate to purchase the pillow. She was already thinking that it was one of the best purchases of her entire life.

But it turned out to be so much better than she thought at the time.

Beka got home and proudly presented the pillow to Harry.

It was not love at first sight. In fact, Harry just seemed a little confused at the pillow.

But those feelings would soon fade.

Beka placed the pillow on top of Harry’s beloved cat tree. Harry raced up to the top of it. Harry sniffed around his pillow double. It seemed that the animal was starting to like this squishy mirror.

The next morning, Beka could see that Harry was taking to the pillow. She moved it to their sofa.

The cat ran up onto the sofa and snuggled next to Beka and the pillow.

But when Beka got up, Harry didn’t follow. In fact, he stayed next to the pillow for the rest of the day.

Harry and the pillow have been basically inseparable ever since.

Harry appears to be completely obsessed with the pillow. Whenever Beka moves it, the cat follows.

So does Harry think that the pillow is his long lost twin, or is he just really vain cat that likes looking at himself? No one knows the answer. All that seems to be certain is that the cat will stick next to the pillow at almost all hours of the day.

Would many cats, or even dogs, react like this if they saw a pillow that looked just like them?

It’s debatable as to whether cats can even recognize their own reflection in the mirror. So would they see a pillow and think “that’s me.”

Regardless of what a pet thinks, many owners would probably like to own pillows that looked similar to their pets.

Perhaps there’s room for a business that makes bespoke pillows that look like your cats and dogs.

There is one company on Amazon that sells pillows that have pictures of your dog on them that are roughly cut to the shape of your pet. These cost $16. But surely there’s a market for pillows that look more like the one that Beka bought for Harry, that doesn’t look rough around the edges and is more 3Dish?

After all, people love their pets and love to be comfy. Surely something that combines the two and is ultra cute could be a real moneymaker?!
