Going to the vet is a stressful experience for cats, which makes it a difficult experience for their owners. But Twitter user Ash wanted to focus on the funnier parts of a trip to the vet, namely the haircuts cats get at the vet in preparation for surgery and other medical procedures. We all know these fur shavings give cats furry boots and lion manes, making them look endearingly ridiculous.
The Twitter post now has over 470k likes and is racking up more by the day. So go ahead and enjoy 30 cats who got extremely unflattering haircuts at the vet that made them look like absolute clown shoes.
