Dougie the cat loves being held. The 15-year-old ginger feline, who was recently living at the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland in Maine, loves being held so much that when he's not in someone's arms, his "meow can be heard from galaxies far away," the animal shelter wrote on Facebook. Now that is pretty cute!

Never give up hope, Cheezfrends! Redditor "sweeetniblets" posted this photo with the commentary:

My friend just went to pet cats at our local animal shelter, and found her cat that had been missing for over a year.

Those, my friends, are tears of pure happiness and joy!

Obviously, kitty is very happy to be home.
