A pet cat has gone viral in China after appearing to cry into a security camera while being left at home alone during a holiday.
The two-year-old British Shorthair, Fu Fu, supposedly wept while hearing his owner calling his name through the home monitor, his owner said.
The pet keeper, Ms Meng, said she was checking on the feline via a surveillance app on her phone when she saw the ‘heart-breaking’ scene.

The CCTV clip was filmed on the night of February 8 in eastern China’s Xuzhou after Ms Meng had gone to her parents’ home in a nearby town to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
The 17-second video, which has received more than 8million ‘likes’, propelled Fu Fu into social media stardom, leading him to be known as the ‘left-behind cat’.
Ms Meng told MailOnline she had decided not to bring Fu Fu out of fear that he could not get used to her parents’ home.
She described Fu Fu as shy and clingy, adding that the pet loves spending time with her.
To ensure Fu Fu’s well-being, Ms Meng had arranged enough food and water for him before her trip and would watch surveillance footage regularly.
