From cat Scooter’s apartment, he not only has amazing views of the Toronto skyline, but he’s now found a new friend in the building’s window cleaner.
Washing the windows of giant buildings would be a scary and difficult task for most people, but the prospect of meeting this feline must make the job a lot more appealing.
Scooter’s racked up over a million views on TikTok in just one day after his owner shared the heartwarming moment he met the window cleaner, albeit through a thick sheet of glass.
“The most wholesome thing happened today,” they wrote, showing Scooter walking around the apartment to the sound of “Yellow” by Coldplay.
The cat approached the large window, appearing fascinated by the window cleaner working outside. He timidly approached, climbing onto the windowsill and following the tools with his head.
It wasn’t long before he began pawing at the window, trying to join in on the job. Adorably, the window cleaner slowed down in moments, waiting for Scooter to paw at the tool each time and interacting with him.
The video can also be seen in full here.
Scooter already has a large following online, with 300,000 followers on the account that shows videos of him in all his cute glory. Videos on the account often reel off “reasons he wouldn’t survive in the wild,” including enjoying regular Starbucks, having his own seat at the table for Sunday brunch and being tucked in nightly—the definition of a pampered pet.
One-year-old Scooter also likes to be carried around the city in his own backpack with a space-age style bubble window, much to the amusement of TikTok viewers.
It is, however, his new friendship with the window cleaner that has truly captured the hearts of most.
“I’d be fired on the first day, because I’d sit there all day,” commented a viewer.
“I’m a window cleaner just like this guy and honestly, seeing cats in the window trying to chase the tools makes my day,” wrote one TikTok user.
“All I need is a compilation of window cleaners and cats and I’ll die happy,” wrote another.
As shown by TikTok’s reaction, cats and window cleaners are often two peas in a pod, and Scooter isn’t the first to go viral for this kind of thing.
Since 2015, Rina Takei and her cat, Guinness, have regularly racked up views in the millions on their YouTube videos, showing a feline and window cleaner friendship.
Just like Scooter, Guinness enjoys following around the cleaning tools with its paws and even runs along the window in time.
