This is Clyde, a lovely white cat with a big personality.
It’s a difficult characteristic to capture in photographs. Clyde’s owner, on the other hand, did so entirely by chance.
Clyde lives with Amanda Hyslop and her boyfriend, both of whom are Twitter users. At home, he loves to keep an eye on what’s going on both inside and outside the window, as if he were some furry, omniscient deity.
That contrast was just caught in a photograph.
“Whenever we leave, he has a tendency of gazing at us from the front window,” Amanda told The Dodo. “I was attempting to catch it when the clouds exactly matched up with his cat perch.”
Clyde instantly assumed the appearance of a celestial creature — a holy cloud cat, if you will.
Amanda did a double take when she saw the photo.
“I unintentionally transformed the cat into some sort of deity by taking a picture of him staring out the window,” she said on Twitter.
Everyone present agreed. Clyde’s cloud shot immediately went viral, gaining him a slew of new fans.
Was the photograph truly an accident? Was it a foreshadowing? Clyde isn’t saying anything.
“I’m sure he’d like the photo,” Amanda remarked. “A lot of people on Twitter claimed I just caught his actual shape, and I believe they are correct.”
