A cat owner feels like she can never leave her house again after making a sad discovery on her pet camera.
Ida Myrin had popped out of her home in Varmland, Sweden, for just 30 minutes but the actions of her feline Isola while she was away pulled at her heartstrings.
Footage caught on Ida’s home camera shows the cute kitty patrolling the hallway apparently trying to find his owner.
With a lead in his mouth, Isola looks even more desperate to not be left alone.
The cat then starts meowing in what hundreds of Reddit viewers believe was a form of “crying”.
Ida’s post on the social media site has been upvoted more than 120,000 times since it was shared last month.
“Oh that mournful sound,” one viewer commented.
Another devastated user wrote: “This made me cry a little.”
And a third added: “This is devastating to watch.”
Ida has since spoken to Daily Star Online about her feelings on discovering what her feline was up to when she was away.
“We thought it was pretty cute at first but when we noticed that he didn’t stop it just felt sad.
“He talks a lot with that ‘whiny’ and sad voice and tone so it’s hard to tell [if he’s crying].
“But he also hates being alone tho, so maybe he is crying.”
She added that Isola “seemed so lonely and restless”.
“It felt like we never could leave him alone again,” Ida added.

It is not the first time the habits of people’s pets have been caught on home cameras.
