He looks a lot like my own cat. I probably would've taken him straight to the vet if he did anything like that. I was told I was abusing the cat when I took this picture, but he actually let me walk around with him slumped around my neck with no problem. That said, I can't enjoy this video if the cat is in pain, even if the resulting appearance is seemingly adorable.
