Singles of the world know the drill. You go out on a first date. The person is cute, pretty interesting and chatting over drinks isn’t too taxing. After a kiss on the sidewalk outside the bar you agreed upon, you start planning on definitely saying “Yes” to a second date.

But before you even reach your front door (which is only 11 blocks away) your phone vibrates from your butt pocket. It’s them! “Miss you,” it reads. Uh, ok. Weird. But you shake it off, until you are bombarded with messages for the next 24 hours — a litany of status check-ins that are more persistent and aggressive than a mom letting her child walk to school alone for the first time. You are dealing with a Stage 5 Clinger.

That’s exactly what this dog is trying to handle. After endlessly hearing about how adorable, sweet and fluffy kittens are, this pup decided to try hanging out with one for a day. Unfortunately, the baby cat took this attention as a lifetime contract and now expects on-demand piggyback rides whenever her tiny heart feels like it. Buck all you want buddy, this kitty’s got her claws in your life now.
