We're screwed.

The Internet is riddled with misinformation about the Ebola virus. In order to sort fact from fiction, we need to turn to our community’s most trusted authority: a cat.

The adorable gray cat in Dylan McQuaid’s Vine video graciously took time out of its day to sit down and explain the effects of the deadly disease, Obama-style.

Truly chilling words. Of course, since they’re coming from a cat, we wouldn’t exactly expect anything sugarcoated.

The brief speech is making the rounds everywhere from Vine itself, where it has been shared over 48,000 times, to Twitter.

@IsabelleRosee_: just a cat giving a presidential speech on ebola…” this is the best thing I’ve ever seen

Hopefully, Dylan McQuaid’s cat will give us regular progress reports until we find a cure, or it screws us all.
