NPR accidentally posts about a cat on its Facebook, now people want more of the cat

Accidentally posting personal stuff onto a work page is every social media manager’s worst nightmare.

This time, after the last few days, it came as a moment of relief. On Monday, an NPR staffer’s accidental Facebook post went viral, amassing more than 20,000 reactions at the time of writing. It concerned none other than a cat named Ramona, presumably belonging to the author of the post.

“Ramona is given new toy: Smiles, examines for 20 seconds, discards,” reads the original post. “Ramona gets a hug: Acquiesces momentarily, squirms to be put down.”

Yes, even the mistake reads like something from NPR.

The post was edited shortly afterward with an apology for the error, indicating that it was intended for a personal account.

But it was too late, and people had caught wind of Ramona the cat. They wanted more.

People were also calling on NPR to ensure the poster in question wouldn’t be disciplined for their minor error.

After all, what’s more certain in life than mistakes and misbehaving cats?
