When she received the pictures, she was anticipating getting cute and adorable photos of her kids. But she was surprised to also get another amusing image!

Aside from her two daughters’ photos, she also got a photo of their adventurous cat Ziggy, four years old.

It was one of the funniest things and she was left in stitches after finding out about the cat’s shenanigans.

Ten-year-old Megan and 7-year-old Chloe both attend the Drury Primary School in Flintshire, North Wales.

On picture day, Ziggy had decided to go after his sisters who were on their way to school.

When it was finally time to take the photos, the cat was also invited to pose in front of the camera and he definitely was prepared for it!

As it turned out, the cat was known for roaming the school grounds on a regular basis.

He loved to tail Megan and Chloes and stayed around the school area throughout the day.

However, Emma did not expect that the cat would become a part of the school and even get a photo of his own!

“When young Chloe handed her the letter, she expected to find the girl’s photos but found Ziggy’s printed images instead. Chloe handed the letter to me and I expected it to be her photos. But then when I looked I was just in floods of laughter and so were the other mums standing by me,” the woman shared.

Emma asked her daughter what happened at school that day, her eyes in tears after laughing so much.

“I asked her what had gone on and she said he just jumped on the chair. He didn’t need any encouragement, he just got up there for a photo. The school has just accepted him and he goes there at any opportunity. He’s there every day. He sleeps on the headmaster’s desk, on piles of books and he goes into every classroom…The kids see him at school and as soon as you go to pick them up you can hear kids talking about him,” Emma added.

Even the headmaster already accepted the cat as a part of the student body.

Headteacher Mark Biltcliffe has said it’s ‘impossible’ to keep Ziggy off the school grounds. Eventually, they all accepted defeat and welcomed the cat as part of the student body happily.

Ziggy’s presence in the school has helped some of the kids cope, especially those without pets at home.

“He thinks he’s a pupil, so it’s fitting he’s had his own photo. I think it’ll be put up on the staff noticeboard,” Mark further shared.

What a clever cat, indeed. He sure looked like he had a lot of fun at school, especially on picture day!
