They say cats have nine lives, but journalist Kate Gray, who tweets as @hownottodraw, recently shared a photo of one cat’s bid for immortality.
Gray shared a photo of a tiny little detail she noticed on her apartment building—a tiny little cat paw print baked into the brick used to construct her home. “[P]ermanent small bean vibes in this house,” Gray tweeted, seemingly viewing the presence of the prints as a good omen (which clearly they are).
