That assumption is totally false.

In a recent post, Twitter user derstern612 reveals the surprising (and adorable) truth. That first photo above isn’t actually of a Shiba Inu — or even a dog, for that matter.

Not surprisingly, despite a lack of additional details, derstern612’s simple tweet has since gone viral.

In a follow-up tweet, derstern612 says that the cat is of the British shorthair variety — a breed that, especially when golden-coated, does have a vaguely Shiba-like look.
