New Zealand MP Andrew Falloon just shared a photo of his father, who recently underwent surgery and is currently still recovering, on Twitter.

In the photo, his father was asleep on the couch with a furry feline friend, in the most adorable position possible: holding hands!


Falloon's mother had left the house a few minutes prior and had evidently left the door ajar. This allowed the cat to slip inside and cozy up to the recovering man on the couch.

The only problem with this kitty wellness check? The Falloons don't have a cat.

Twitter users were quick to point out that they seem to have inherited one, whether they were looking to or not.

Cats definitely have a mind of their own.


Some couldn't get enough of the adorable pose.

Surgery recoveries would be much more pleasant for many people if this was the case:

"Rescue Human"

Apparently strays finding their way in to a warm human to sleep on is a surprisingly common thing.





Falloon told Mashable:

"I'm just happy Dad's on the mend, and if the photo made a few people smile that's nice too."

He said the biggest change that will come about from the popularity of the photo has less to do with cats and more to do with technology.

He said that his father isn't usually much of a cat person, and told Mashable:

"Now I need to explain to Dad what Twitter is

Whether you're a cat person or not, I think most people would agree that the situations and places they manage to get themselves into boggle the mind.

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?
