Find the Cat: Here’s the Answer to the Viral Photo Puzzle

Hinds loves sharing stories about her cat on Twitter. Here’s another cute picture of her cat from this month:

Last month, Hinds shared that her cat likes to guard the room she works in and will meow like crazy if she closes the door. I can relate to this, because my cat Mufasa does the same thing if I close my office door. Cats don’t like being kept away from their loved ones.

In April she shared her cat’s “Kingdom of Boxes”:

I especially love this photo because her cat is right next to a painting of her cat:
