Pictures of a sleepy cat enjoying a nap during a medical operation in south London have won people’s hearts on the internet.

The unknown cat was photographed at a doctor’s surgery in Lewisham and looked extremely cozy on a blue chair.

The chair, which is typically used by patients waiting to see the doctor, seems to be the perfect bed for the moggi.

In addition, the cat appears to be a regular guest, with a sign on the wall above the chair that reads: “Message regarding the cat.”

Cozyly, the sign continues: “We are aware that the cat is often in the health center and we do everything we can to remove it, but I will return whenever possible.”

The message continues: “Please do not touch the cat, and if you do, do so at your own risk.”

The photos of the cat and the sign have been shared in several Facebook groups and it is believed that the operation in question is the Lee Health Center in Lewisham.

It is not known exactly when the photo was taken, but one person commented that they had not seen the cat in surgery for a while, perhaps because of Covid.

In a comment to the post, one person wrote: “Well, the cat is definitely first in line, I wonder if it has not been told that it is not the vets !!”
