A hilarious photo of a cat named Albert in his e-collar (aka cone of shame) has gone viral. His human Jean Baker shared the pic of her 2-year-old Persian looking miserable and then posted it to Facebook where it promptly ‘blew up’.
The photo has close to 2 million views on Imgur and has been shared on TV shows as well.
Baker told Oregon Live, “It’s so crazy. Every day I wake up (and) I’m thinking ‘oh its going to calm down’ but it’s just more. I am so surprised.”
Albert got the cone of shame after having a cyst removed and had to leave the cone on for a few days to let the stitches heal.
