The Wayside Waifs in Kansas City, Missouri shared the video on TikTok to showcase some of the cats they have up for adoption.
In the clip, you can see a staff member holding a bowl full of papers that have various cat descriptions. The staff members a fellow staff member to “recommend me a cat” based on a randomly selected description.
The first description is “a cat that loves to cuddle,” so the staff member heads to a sweet feline named Corduroy. From there, they look for “a cat with catitude.” The staff member leads viewers to the “sweet but unpredictable Treva.”
They continue drawing descriptions and picking out cats based on what they draw.
