Most cat owners can only dream of their feline friend greeting them excitedly when they get home from work. But this is a regular feature of Michael Collins’ day.

Meet Sox

For years, Sox the cat has sat on the windowsill waiting for Michael to come home. When he sees his owner approaching, he starts to wave excitedly. It’s not just when Michael gets home either. Sox makes sure he waves his owner off to work too.

The clip starts with Sox sitting by the window looking out. As he spots Michael coming past, the cute kitty starts excitedly batting the window with his paw. Michael waves back (of course) and as he passes the window, Sox changes paws and continues waving until Michael is out of sight.

Viral star

With everything going on in the world the moment, Michael decided to share the video online to brighten up people’s day and it worked. The video has had 120,000 views, 2,000 retweets and almost 9,000 likes making Sox a viral star!
