A woman’s unlikely friendship with a cat she spotted in a window across from her work recently made its way online, prompting others to share pictures of their kitties.

Erika Strong, who works in marketing for Shopify, found a cute cat peering from a window in a building across from her.

Majestic and long-furred, she instantly fell for the pet, and spent weeks staring out of the window wondering what their name was.

This is Marshall.

She then proceeded to show Marshall that he’s gone viral online.

Cats + internet = Golden content.

Cat-owners online took the opportunity (as they are known to do) to share pictures of their cats, too (and their names).

Kato Lincoln Towncat (why?).

And this neighbour's tiny dog.
