Just in case you were wondering if you could get graduation caps and gowns for cats… you absolutely can.
Francesca Bourdier, a graduate from the University of Texas this year, thought it was only appropriate to grab a matching set for her cat, Suki.
As you do.
But she took it up a notch.
With most of Francesca’s classes being online, Suki was also able to tag along and attend.
“I was pretty much at my apartment for most of the time and I had my cat next to me. Whenever I would have my Zoom lecture on, it’s like she almost wanted to listen in on it, and she would always just sit by my laptop,” she said.
So naturally, she made Suki an honourable member of the Class of 2022, to which the university agreed.

She shared cute photos on social media with the caption, “Yes, my cat attended every Zoom lecture I had so we will BOTH be graduating from THE University of Texas at Austin together”.
The university responded by saying, “Congratulations to you both”.
Francesca said she loved having Suki’s presence during Zoom lectures.
“A lot of people relate to having their pet with them, you know, attending their Zoom lectures because everyone was pretty much at home. She’s just kind of my special graduate,” she told FOX 7.
