One teenager has finally done what we were all dying to when we were 18 - Sam Steingard from Washington DC took his cat to prom and they're the cutest couple EVER.
The 18-year-old's photo went viral when his sister, Caroline, shared it on Imgur with the caption "my brother took his cat to prom". Yes, Ruby the cat is wearing a dress. And yes, she looks absolutely overjoyed to be on Sam's arm.
According to Caroline, Ruby was the purr-fect (sorry) prom date because he couldn't find a human to accompany him, which we didn't find altogether surprising when we checked out Ruby's Instagram page (@rubytheprettykitty, in case you were wondering). There just isn't room for a lady in your life when you have a bond like Ruby and Sam's.
Here they are sharing a sweet caress.
They take great couple selfies together.
Here they are looking like we might have interrupted something.
Who needs a date when you've got a fluffy ball of love waiting at home?
