If you hear an odd noise through a vent in your home, don’t worry. Maybe it’s not something gross, like a rat. It could just be a lovely and energetic cat coming to hang out and receive some affection!

A woman who goes by @brenaclifton on Twitter posted a video to her account over the weekend that shows a cat emerging from a vent on her floor. The video was captioned with a surprise revelation: “Two things: 1. I don’t have a cat………… 2. I DON’T HAVE A CAT.”

This tweet went viral, obviously. And the reactions were pretty great.

Some people suggested that Brena keep the cat.

Others seemed very jealous of her “problem.”

Bad news: the cat apparently has an owner already.

Brena’s roommate Sarah posted photos of the cat, who is named Jeffery. He belongs to a neighbor.

Well, this is one way to actually befriend your neighbors.
