If the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that humans are crazy about cat videos. However, folks went crazy about one in particular in early September. The video showed a cat viewing a video of his previous owner, who had recently died, according to the description. As though giving his owner one last embrace, the cat cozies up to the phone. It’s a touching and heartbreaking narrative that drew over 30 million viewers. There’s only one problem: it’s not true.

The cat brushes up to the phone after many seconds of tear-jerking music, as if to snuggle up to his former owner.
