Reddit user HoneyFlowers saw a tragic scene of what appeared to be a cat that had been horribly hurt. Stopping only to take a few photos along the way, the brave Redditor approached the wounded feline with the intention of helping it. However, much to HoneyFlowers’ surprise, the cat wasn’t hurt at all—it was just napping on some dried paint! “Smug bastard.”
