It’s inevitable; we all get taken in by a con at some point in our lives. While we may not realize it in the moment, after it’s all said and done, we sit back and say, “Oh.” And recently, a whole bunch of Twitter users fell victim to @DonutOperator and his hilarious scam to collect a bunch of cute cat photos. In the end, nobody was mad. In fact, they were happy to be caught up in his game, because everybody got to look at tons of cute cats pictures in the end. And who doesn’t love a cat pic?

The flood of replies and cat fun started after the silly sneak first posted a picture of an adorable ginger cat napping with his sweet paws in the air. With the picture came one simple sentence and it was quick to grab people’s attention, “My cat is cuter than yours fight me.”

After the clever cat dad collected quite the horde of cat pics in response, he revealed his scam in a reply to his own original post reading, “HA my ruse was successful now I have hundreds of super cute animal pictures to look at when I’m down you stupid idiots fell right into my trap.”
