Travelling over 4,000 miles to meet your dream girl? I call that cat superpower.
Adam Lawrence, a 28-year-old graphic designer from London, UK, posted two photos of himself and his friend’s cat in the Facebook group – THIS CAT IS C H O N K Y. His photos received tons of likes and comments.
“It was the first time I ever posted in the group but I have always loved cats and when I saw my friend’s fluffy cat I couldn’t resist,” says Lawrence. Among the people who commented on his pics, there was a stranger who caught his attention. That was Anna Hosey, a-25-year-old hairstylist who lives in Chicago, Illinois, also a cat enthusiast. “Both v v cute,” is what Anna had dropped under Adam’s photos.

Everything started in October, when Adam messaged Anna, and the two began to chat daily via Facebook Messenger.
“Adam sent me a private message after I had made the comment and we immediately hit it off based off our massive similarities in music taste and learned we had much more in common after that,” Anna tells Metro.co.uk.
The sparkle between the two, made Adam travel 4,000 miles to meet Anna in person in the States. “Thankfully had the best time and it was like we had known each other forever,” he said.
When I initially proposed the idea of him coming to Chicago, I hoped he would, but I didn’t believe he would. I was a little bit wary but I was willing to take the small risk and I am so glad I did because we had the best time.

Anna admits she had felt nervous when picking Adam up in the airport – a feeling which had vanished as they got in the car. “It is crazy how we are so in tune with each other. He met my friends, parents and most importantly my cat, Kidden and they all loved him,” Anna said, pointing out that her friends are surprised she has met a person as talkative and spontaneous as she is.
“I don’t believe it will fizzle out because it has already been two months, and we have never not had anything to say,” she added.
Apparently, the two of them spent a great time together and feel connected to each other, as Anna plans to visit London in February to see Adam again.
