When Grant Olson and Sara Nozaki adopted the stray cat they now call Wilbur, they didn’t realise that what they actually got was a tiny human trapped in a cat’s body!

They soon discovered that Wilbur the cat sits just like a human!

"Grant and I have always wanted a cat," explained Sara.

"One day, we found a little mouse scurrying about our New York apartment. That's when he put his foot down and said, 'Babe, we're getting a cat!',"

“Grant was casually browsing the New York City subreddit, where he found a post with Wilbur’s picture saying, ‘does this cat belong to anyone? Grant half jokingly commented, ‘hey, if you can’t find his owner, I might be willing to take him’.”

And then two days later, Wilbur arrived at his forever home.

This cute kitty doesn't always sit like a human, it would appear that his torso is either too long or his legs are too short, so he always sits in odd positions.

Wilbur enjoys a good cuddle and is a total lovebug.

“We think his spine is abnormally long or his legs are abnormally short. But he’s extraordinarily cute to us”

They also discovered another thing that is not very cat-like…he likes to play fetch!

And like a lot of kitties – chasing his own tail!

Go Wilbur!
