When Christy Howell saw her friend’s cat after his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day at the vet’s, there was only one thing she could do: take a picture of him and post it on Facebook.
“This is my friend Jean’s cat Albert,” she wrote. “Albert got an owie. Albert got shaved and the cone of shame. Albert is not having the best day.”
How could she not capture poor Albert’s expression and share it with everyone? Because that cat is trying to fit about seventeen emotions inside that tight plastic cone with his head, and most of them are synonymous with rage and disgust. In the comments section, Howell said that Albert’s owner did not have Facebook because she didn’t think she ever had anything interesting to post. Obviously she’s never looked at her own cat’s face.
Some commenters asked whether the photo was real and Howell confirmed that it was. (Seriously, all the Photoshop in the world couldn’t generate the fury behind those eyes). But a few Reddit users decided that they’d take it to its logical conclusion, with a couple of them submitting ideas for where else Albert’s face might fit. We give you:

Get well soon, Albert. And please don’t kill us all while we sleep.
