Literally nothing is cuter than these two cats who became best friends against all odds.

In late April, a woman who goes by the name "Mac" on Twitter posted a picture of her cat, Simon, looking forlornly out the window. What was out there that could captivate Simon for so long?

Was it a bird flying by? Was it the call to be outside?  Or was it the realization that Mac is living in my personal nightmare of having her window face directly into another window ensuring at least one embarrassing situation of rom/com proportions?

No, well kinda: It was the other cat that lives in the window across the way.


Simon was in love and he didn't know the cat's name or have any way to get across for a meow-and-greet (sorry).

Here's the picture:

First of all: The "Love, Simon" is iconic because that was the best movie of 2018.

Second of all, this cat looks truly friend-sick (which is kind of like being love-sick except when you meet someone who you're like 'wow they would be so cool to hang out with' and just obsess over it for a few hours. Totally normal) and that breaks my heart.

Third, this beautiful collage of pictures has revealed that the other cat's name is "Theo" and he's not great at grammar, which is very important.

Theo even showed up for Simon's birthday. How did they know? Why isn't this kind of stuff covered in "Cats: The Musical" starring Taylor Swift?'

Soon, Simon and Theo's parents were leaving the windows open so the cats could talk and, predictably, the whole thing went viral.

I'm not going to pull 500 tweets to prove this to you -- too many pictures of cats to be seen -- but I was there for it and my timeline was filled with people (rightfully) breaking down because two cats were at the beginning of the kind of beautiful friendship we all wanted in our early 20s.

Because this is 2019, suddenly Theo had a twitter account and was posting pics of himself chilling in a bow tie...just like his friend had on his birthday. Anyone else getting "Single White Female" vibes off of this? (Oh, Simon has a twitter, too.)

Of course, now that the cats — animals without opposable thumbs or the ability to speak in human — were set up with social media, the only other thing they could do was meet each other for the delight of the internet-loving public who demanded either an in-person friendship or at least one of the parties to quickly move away (so that we could text our friends "sometimes I still think about that cat whose best friend moved and it's really an amazing allegory for connection in our hectic, modern lives").

Simon was anxious for the meeting:

But it turned out pretty well! Everyone had a great time! (I honestly don't know what that means because I don't have cats and am just sitting here in my living room trying to google "cats meet+good outcome!)

And Simon was so hyped by the time the meeting was over, that the only way he could come back down the ground was by watching Taylor Swift's new single.

Same. Here's hoping a lifetime of friendship for these two!

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
