LEAVE BUDDY ALONE.

Posted on

Folks online are dying over these photos 13-year-old Gillian Breanna from Mobile, Alabama, shared of her cat Buddy on Monday. "My cat is so ugly," Gillian captioned the tweet.

People agreed — nervously. The photos of Buddy were met with a lot of "...oh" reactions.

Someone actually printed the photo of Buddy out and taped it to their wall.

@watrprks I love waking up to this every morning

And the photos were being used as DIY Snapchat filters.

And banners.

Gillian's tweet even had other cat owners hilariously and sadly relating to it, calling out their cats.

And other, smugger owners proudly claiming they "can't relate."

But unfortunately — or fortunately, for you Buddy! — Gillian told BuzzFeed News she actually used a photo-warping filter when she took the photos. "I thought it would be funny," she explained, and then shared a photo of what Buddy looks like normally.

While Gillian is "shocked" by how viral her tweet became, she does want to make it clear that she wasn't trying to be mean about Buddy — "I love her very much," she said.

Please don't be mean to ur cat https://t.co/4y2p8tf3cR

The warped photos of Buddy drew a lot of love and support from people too — many of whom still thought she was "beautiful."

@watrprks ur cat is cute dont call it ugly

He's great and I love him https://t.co/W3cP9VGhrb

Because, c'mon, we can all relate to Buddy's misfortune with that one truly unflattering photo everyone has had taken.

"Snapchat vs. Instagram"

"When you open your phone to the front-facing camera"

"Me when I wake up vs. one hour in the bathroom"
