The cat never saw it coming.

An Amazon customer dressed her feline in a revealing crop top that her daughter purchased on the website to purr-ove a point – and the wacky post has gone viral.

"My 16 y.o. daughter bought this thing. It is ridiculously small and I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it. But, so you can see ... here is a picture of our cat wearing it. To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat," reads the message posted by sbo43 from Houston, Texas.
