A recent photo posted by Tsukino-san (@tsukino_meito) is trending on Twitter.

One day, Tsukino-san laid out her measuring tape to measure her bed frame.

When out of the blue, her cat came over and placed its paw over the end of the tape measure.

There’s a saying in Japanese that goes, “neko no te mo karitai,” (猫の手も借りたい) for when one is extremely busy and could even use a cat’s help, as we all know cats are never one to lift a paw for anyone but themselves, though that doesn’t mean we don’t still love them anyway.

In this case, it’s not that Tsukino-san asked for a hand, but seems like her cat was in the mood to help out.

The post from January 30, 2021 has received over 409K likes at the time of writing, as well as many comments from users.

  • What a great assistant! So cute!
  • I laughed out loud when I saw this. He looks like a skilled craftsman!
  • It’s the first time I’ve seen someone getting help from a cat in real life… (referring to the saying above)

Although cats may not be known as the most helpful creatures, Tsukino-san’s post certainly builds a case against the stereotype.

And many users followed suit, sharing their own moments benefitting from their furry friends.

Have we misunderstood this whole time? It’s not that cats were getting in the way or seeking attention…

They were giving us moral support when we wrote up reports and even lending a hand when they could!
