A cat named Biscuit went viral on TikTok after his human posted a clip of him sitting with his head down and looking like he was going to cry.


How can we help him? 🥺#depressed #cat #help

@thefluffymeows posted the clip of Biscuit, which quickly went viral, with many offering advice and expressing concern for the cat. Many pointed out that the cat is a bred Scottish fold breed that tends to have health issues. Users encouraged people to always rescue instead of going to breeders.

The video shared on TikTok shows Biscuit sitting by a window with his head down. The TikTok has racked up over 18 million views.

The text on the video read,

“The second day our cat sits like this. He looks depressed and we don’t know how to help him.” The owner asked in the caption, “How can we help him?”

One user said, “As a veterinary technician, I would recommend taking him to the vet ASAP. This is usually a health issue.”

Many people were invested in Biscuit and wanted to make sure that he was ok. In a series of update videos, @thefluffymeows went to numerous vets and tried to figure out what was wrong. It seemed like they were getting very different answers everywhere they went, and everything was very expensive.

Poor biscuit still seemed sad and wasn’t eating or pooping much. They stayed up with him through the night and tried to help him and tried to massage his tummy to work out his intestines.

Finally, one day when they came back from the vet, they noticed that he immediately went to his food bowl, which was a great sign. Slowly, he began to feel better, and now he is better than ever!
