Rex, a cat owned by Emily Crane, had a habit of disappearing every day.

Then he returned home with an adorable note from his neighbors which shed light on the cat's whereabouts.


Crane has had Rex for eight years. Not long after rescuing him as a kitten, she discovered that he liked to go outside.

"He loves attention, especially when it comes with nice, behind the ear scratches," Crane told The Dodo.

"At a rather young age, he starting begging to go outside. I would let him out the back door and watch from my upstairs kitchen window."

He's adorable, isn't he?

Rex had free rein of the neighborhood from a young age and Crane believes seeing a "friendly kitty" likely delighted her neighbors. Then one day he returned home with a note attached to his collar.

"He pranced inside with it, like he knew that he had a delivery to make," Crane said.

The note reads:

"Hello! This is your neighbor in the red house! We just wanted to let you know that Rex has developed a weird love for our bathtub + will sneak into our home to sit in it! All of us in the house are 100% okay with this because we all love Rex very much. We just want to let you know in case you were wondering where he was one of these days … he's probably in our bathtub. <3 The Red House."

Crane says she thought the letter was hilarious.

"I seriously could not stop laughing when I found the note," she said. "It was adorable!"

Others concurred––and shared stories of their own.

"I love how friendly Rex is with people," Crane said. "If they are interested, I can tell it makes their day to give a pet to a handsome, social kitty cat."

Rex has made our day as well––and we're eagerly awaiting that children's book.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
