A Cat With A Twitter Account Went Missing And Basically All Of Brazil Freaked Out

But calm down, people, he's back home now.

Posted on

This is Pépito, a French kitten whose movements in and out of his home are automatically tracked on his Twitter account @PepitoTheCat.

However, last Thursday, Pépito caused some drama for his 34,000 followers. He went out and "disappeared" for more than 22 hours.

Pépito has a lot of fans in Brazil, who started to get really worried when he didn't check in.

@PepitoTheCat Ele não voltou ainda ele esta morto

"He's not back yet he's dead."

@PepitoTheCat PEPITO VOLTA PRA MIM PELO AMOR DE DEUS

"PEPITO COME BACK TO ME FOR THE LOVE OF GOD."

People's responses started to get quite intense.

@chrisnapster @PepitoTheCat Não adianta cara...

"It's no good." Photo text: "My heart is in mourning."

@juzao @PepitoTheCat VAMOS SAIR NAS RUAS GRITANDO EI PEPITO

"LET'S GO OUT ON THE STREET AND SHOUT HEY PEPITO."

Everyone was desperate to see him back home safe and sound.

"COME BACK PEPITOOOOOO."

Lots of people moblized to find him.

"Pepito still hasn't come home."

o vigilante noturno está neste exato momento procurando o nosso amigo pépito

"The night watchman is out right now looking for Pépito."

After hours of speculation, Pépito's owner took to his account to clarify what was going on.

Don't worry, Pépito is sleeping at home, he sometimes uses the "human's door" ;)

And, after this post was published, he was seen going out again.

What an emotional rollercoaster.

"When the Pépito takes more than 2 hours to go home."
