“We Are NOT Cat People.” Stray Gives Delivery Driver No Choice But To Bring Her Home.

David the delivery driver selected by Venus the cat

On the internet, everyone knows that you don’t choose a cat; they choose you, as if they were sent to you by the universe itself. It’s called the Cat Distribution System (CDS for short).

In a very funny example of the CDS at work, a mom in Texas shared a video of her son, David, being accosted by a stray cat while he was working one night as a delivery driver. The white cat ran straight up to the young man and latched onto his leg, refusing to let go as he struggled to walk across the parking lot. His dashcam captured the moment when he called his mother to ask if he could keep the cat. As if he had a choice!

In the video, mom wrote, “We are not cat people” and explained how the cat followed David and eventually hopped onto his shoulder and wouldn’t get down. Eventually, they decided to give into the CDS and take the cat home. A follow-up video reveals the kitty is settling in nicely with the family’s canine and human family members. Her name is Venus!

The original video has been viewed a couple million times, and we can see why. It’s rare to see a meme come to life with such hilarious clarity!
