The hiker had sprained his ankle on one of the many mountain trails of the Bernese Oberland in Gimmelwald, Switzerland. The path that led back to his hostel had just been closed, leaving him lost and stranded in the Alps.

That’s when a black and white cat crossed his path.

The subject line of the email simply read: “Meeting,” while the image was coupled with an RSVP tab and a caption saying “cat pajama-jam party.”
