A pet cat has gone viral in China after appearing to cry into a security camera while being left at home alone during a holiday.
The two-year-old British Shorthair, Fu Fu, supposedly wept while hearing his owner calling his name through the home monitor, his owner said.
The pet keeper, Ms Meng, said she was checking on the feline via a surveillance app on her phone when she saw the ‘heart-breaking’ scene.
Security footage shows Fu Fu staring into the camera with tears in his eyes at home in China
The CCTV clip was filmed on the night of February 8 in eastern China’s Xuzhou after Ms Meng had gone to her parents’ home in a nearby town to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
The 17-second video, which has received more than 8million ‘likes’, propelled Fu Fu into social media stardom, leading him to be known as the ‘left-behind cat’.
Ms Meng told MailOnline she had decided not to bring Fu Fu out of fear that he could not get used to her parents’ home.
She described Fu Fu as shy and clingy, adding that the pet loves spending time with her.
To ensure Fu Fu’s well-being, Ms Meng had arranged enough food and water for him before her trip and would watch surveillance footage regularly.
The trending video shows Fu Fu purring with tears in his eyes, after Ms Meng called his name ‘Fu Fu’ through the monitor.
Ms Meng can be heard saying in the clip ‘do you miss me’ and ‘I will come back in a few days’.
As Ms Meng’s voice plays, Fu Fu turns around to look at the door before turning back to touch the camera with his paw.
‘I felt heartbroken when I saw this,’ Ms Meng confessed. She said that she eventually cut her trip short to return home to Fu Fu.
‘I had planned to stay at my parents’ home for a week, but we all returned to Xuzhou early,’ she noted.
A follow-up video shared by Ms Meng on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, shows Fu Fu dashing towards Ms Meng excitedly after she got home four days later.
Weepy eyes in cats can be signs of illnesses, such as eye infections or blocked tear ducts. But Ms Meng insisted that Fu Fu was perfectly healthy. She claimed that Fu Fu often had tears in his eyes when he was anxious or hungry.
Fu Fu’s ‘crying’ video has attracted more than 250,000 comments on Douyin as web users flocked to show their affection for the cat.
One fan wrote: ‘My heart melted when I saw Fu Fu’s eyes.’
Another viewer said: ‘I feel so sorry for him.’
A third person joked: ‘He didn’t miss you. He missed his fish.’
