As animal lovers, there is nothing that gets our hearts racing like the sight of an animal in need. No matter what we’re doing, if we’re already late for work, have an important call to make or really anything, we will drop it all to stop and lend a hand. It’s just what we do!

Which is why we can completely sympathize with Imgur user Honeyflowers.

Honeyflowers was out walking when they spotted this…


Clearly, this scene looks terrible. The cat must have been hit by a car in the parking lot and is in desperate need of medical attention. Honeyflowers rushed over.


…Only to find that the poor, injured cat was really just lying on top of dried red paint splatters. In typical cat fashion, he seemed more upset that he had been woken up from his nap than the apparent panic in the human before him.


Yes, the cat was very much alive. But hey, we totally would have done the exact same thing!

“Wellp, looks like I’m gonna need a new snooze spot…”

Because he is lying outside in the sun doesn\'t mean he has no home.

I was expecting to find that the cat had kittens and that was the "blood" they saw. Great ending.

Oh wow, that little stinker. I was feeling sorry for the fur baby and wasn\'t sure if I would be able to finish reading the article. Then it was paint not blood. Thank goodness this one has a wonderful and funny ending to it as so many do not.
Thank you Honeyflowers for caring enough to check on the kitty.

I\'ve owned cats my entire life and I have NEVER seen a cat lay out in the open (except my own in my yard). I call jinks on this one.

My one cat decided that he would lay out just like this in the middle of our street one day so yes it is possible. I am so glad my cat no longer does this.

My neighbours cat does it all the time in good weather, he has obviously worked out that everyone has to either walk around him or stop and make a fuss of him, which most of the people around where I live do.

ROFL - we have dogs and cats at home, a couple are getting on in years and have some health issues. If they are sleeping a little too peacefully, I poke them and get a similar look for my troubles...I hope this doesn\'t deter Honeyflowers from doing teh right thing. Great story, made me smile.

I hope this person who saw the cat took him in off the streets!!! He needs to be safe and indoors!

Cindy, I was thinking the exact same thing. (Next time he could end up run over in the parking lot.)
