This angry cat went from hissing in her face to letting her rub his belly!
Anastasia Sutcliff absolutely loves cats and wishes she could have one, but her landlord has a strict no-pets policy.
So, she did the next best thing and bent the rules.
Even though Anastasia isn’t supposed to have cats in her apartment, that hasn’t stopped the neighborhood strays from snubbing their noses at silly Hooman occupancy rules.
Dog’s life? Nah, it’s the cat life that’s good!
Every time Anastasia opens her window, the rebellious furries of Sheffield, England jump right inside her flat for some chow and cuddles. And when feeding time is over, they go back on the prowl, free to do whatever the heck they want to. ‘Cause they cats, yo!
One day Anastasia noticed a dark brown kitty she had never seen before come snooping around her backyard. Tiger the tabby was a little bit different from the rest of the gang.
Let’s just say he looks like the cat who ate the Angry Bird canary.
Unlike the other friendly strays, this guy was a mean, loud-mouthed ball of fur who had quite a few things to say about being unloved and homeless!
Being the patient, kindhearted woman that she is, Anastasia listened to every screech and hiss that came out of his street-wise mouth.
When he was done venting, she reached out the window with a long stick, bringing a bowl of food within his reach.
She even gave him the expensive stuff from the can! Which as you can see from his snarky stare, was somewhat underappreciated.
To gain his trust, Anastasia decided to build Tiger an outdoor house.
At first, she was afraid he wouldn’t go for it since it wasn’t made out of a used Amazon cardboard box.

It was still box-like in shape, though, which meant it was good enough for Tiger to shelter his weary body from the trials and tribulations of life.
However, not even a restful night’s sleep could knock that standoffish scowl off his face!
Anastasia feels like she has a lot in common with Tiger. She tells Good Morning America that:
“We had similar personalities don’t trust people that much so I just felt that this cat understood me somehow. This cat was special.”
Sadly, just as Anastasia and Tiger were getting to know and trust one another, the authorities stepped into the picture.
A well-meaning neighbor called animal control on poor Tiger.
Instead of finding him peacefully snoozing in his house, Anastasia woke up one day to find her new friend frantically clawing at the cage he was trapped in.
The news wasn’t all bad, however. The animal control officer informed Anastasia that Tiger would actually be going to a foster home.
It meant he had a shot at finding a fur-ever home!
While it brought tears to her eyes because she knew that this was going to be their final goodbye, it was the best thing for Tiger.
But of course, that’s not how synchronicity works. Tiger found his way to Anastasia’s window for a reason – they were meant to be together.
As fate would have it, her landlord made an exception to the no-pets policy!
Anastasia was able to adopt Tiger, and they are now living happily ever after, right along with their millions of devoted followers on TikTok.
