Boston, Massachusetts woman Christiana Viscusi and her husband – otherwise known as Cat Dad – were heartbroken when they lost their fuzzy feline friend, Sophie, in mid 2017. However, the empty space in their hearts and home after Sophie passed was happily soon filled. It all began two months later, when Viscusi came across her deceased pet’s doppelgänger while surfing online.

Sophie was originally a rescue pet who was saved from an appalling situation where piles of animals in cages were being hoarded together. The three-year-old cat was rescued from her plight and then sheltered by the Animal Rescue League of Boston. It wasn’t long before Sophie found her forever home nearby, with 40-year-old web designer Viscusi and Cat Dad.

The adorable ball of feline fluff made herself perfectly at home with her new adopted family pretty quickly. Sophie soon decided on her favorite spot to sleep – on top of the dresser in mummy and daddy’s room. Viscusi noted this and bought Sophie her very own miniature bed, complete with bed sheets, and placed it atop the dresser.
