Another humorous cat video recently gone by the bottle shows a white fluffy cat enjoying the benefits of a makeshift home spa.
In the 14-second clip, posted to Reddit by user Sunshineandhomicide, the cat has a warm compress consisting of a brown towel covering his eyes and being swaddled in a soft blanket.
Calming music plays softly in the background while the cat, clearly enjoying the pampering, lies still and sticks out its tongue.
“My cat caught a cold and the vet recommended a warm compress for his eyes. I think he is enjoying his spa time,” explains Sunshineandhomicide in the caption.
