Prom is certainly one of the more anxiety-producing events of any high school experience.
When Sam Steingard, a high school senior, couldn’t find a classmate with whom to attend his senior prom, he asked an unlikely companion to be his date: his family cat, Ruby.
Ruby, one of Sam’s biggest fans, was into the idea. Dolled up in her gorgeous pink ensemble, Ruby played the part of gorgeous prom date well.
No stranger to the camera’s lens, she graciously posed for pre-prom portraits, gazing up at her date with the dreamiest stare.
Sam’s older sister, Caroline, promptly shared this cute couple’s photo online. In just four days, over 160,000 people viewed the photo, prompting all sorts of different responses.
Most were shocked that Caroline’s adorable brother couldn’t seem to find a human date for the prom.
This story is yet another prime example of how, when things aren’t necessarily going our way, pets can certainly be a steady source of love and light in our lives.
