Everybody has at least one.

You know, a text from your mom that is hilariously, unbelievably mom-like. Well, for Toronto freelance writer Danielle Matheson sharing her example has led to an all-out Twitter love-fest.

Last Monday, Matheson shared three texts/photos she had received from her mom with the caption: “Nobody has had a more productive day than my mother”.

Since then, the tweet has gone on to be retweeted more than 90,000 times and liked more than 200,000 times.

And it’s not hard to see why.

Taking advantage of the internet’s love for all things cat by posting pictures of a cat doing something unexpectedly amazing is always a recipe for social media success.

So when Matheson got a text from her mom that said, “So pinterest says if you put a square on the floor the cat will get in it” followed by a picture of her mom’s cat looking at a taped square on the floor, and then, miraculously, one of the cat sitting directly in the square.

The tweet has encouraged many, many people to try the same thing on their own cats with great success:

In fact, if we had an office cat we’d be trying this right now. Sadly, our office dog has no interest whatsoever.
