Stray Cat With Love Heart Marking on Fur Sends Internet Wild: ‘Adorable’

The internet is in awe of the “wholesome” video of a stray cat showing off its love heart-shaped mark.

Over a million people spent 35 seconds waiting for the big reveal from the chat side, many of whom said “it was worth the wait”.

The cat was spotted in Greece by Tik Toker who goes by the name @crispinion, from Liverpool, UK.

The video was a hit online and it has racked up over 194,000 likes since it was posted on October 3.

The original poster is thrilled to see the cat with unique markings, and it’s clear the feline has increased his serotonin levels while on vacation.

However, stray cats on the streets without a home are a real problem not only in Greece but all over the world. It is estimated that between 60 and 100 million feral cats live in the United States

Greece has a high population of stray cats, and the country also has its own breed. Originating from the Greek islands known as the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, they are natural cats, meaning they developed without humans being involved in their breeding.

As a breed, Aegean cats are rare, although they are plentiful on their home island.

The Greek Cat Welfare Society, a UK-based charity, has shared some do’s and don’ts for tourists on the Greek island.

  • Do not pick up or move kittens; it’s completely normal for a cat’s mother to leave them for up to six o’clock
  • Take a sick or injured cat to a local veterinarian or shelter
  • Do not give milk to cats or kittens as it may cause diarrhea
  • Be careful where you feed stray animals as they may be unwanted in local restaurants
  • Don’t be afraid of catching rabies. There have been no cases of rabies in cats in Greece since the 1970s.

Hundreds of Tik Tokers commented on the video and most complimented the “cute” cat.

One user said, “It’s a love-loving little bug.” Another wrote, “Thanks for the serotonin.”

“SO HEALTHY” said another.

Some users have commented to say that they also have a dog or a cat with a love heart!

Newsweek previously shared a story about a cat that has been compared to the “Phantom of the Opera” due to its unusual markings, as well as another article shared about a feline that has been compared to the late, great Freddy Mercury.
