Two years ago, Lulu’s life was forever changed, she went from being a sad shelter cat to her mom’s much-loved companion. Lulu’s has been saying “thank you” in her own special way ever since.
After being adopted and settling in after a few months to her happy new forever home, Lulu began an very cute ritual. Realizing that her owner, Kayla, liked to put slippers on her feet after waking up, Lulu began bringing them to her every morning, collecting them from wherever her mom had taken them off the day before.
Since Lulu can only carry one slipper at a time, she always makes two trips.
“My mom was surprised,” Lulu’s owner’s daughter, Kayla said. “She wore the drool-covered slippers to encourage Lulu.” Sure enough, it has become a routine now.

My mom adopted a cat that brings her slippers to her every morning. I didn’t believe her until she got it on camera finally 😹 #lulutheslippercat #catsofinstagram #catsofinsta #cats #rescuecat #mainecoon #mainecooncats #mainecooncats #cat #cats_of_instagram #catstagram #catlife #meowed
That was just the first trip, of course.
Here’s Lulu after she went back to fetch the other slipper:
Kayla’s mother had told her that Lulu would bring her slippers to her each morning, but Kayla had assumed it was a joke.
“I didn’t believe her until she got it on camera,” Kayla said. And now the whole world knows about the sweet cat’s gesture and she’s famous for it!
It might not be impossible to read Lulu’s mind to explain her behavior, we believe the message and is clear and it comes from the heart.
“It really seems like she just want to take care of my mom, since my mom takes such good care of her,” Kayla said.
“She’s 10 years old and already has to go to the vet monthly for her kidneys and urinary tract so we’re just happy that she’s getting to live with us instead of in the shelter.”
Lulu loves it when her mom works from home. She can’t wait to start her day with her favorite human in the world.
Here’s another clip of Lulu caring the slipper proudly in her mouth as she walks into her human’s room.
