To her amusement her neighbour replied revealing the feline is called Walter. 

Sian sent her approval saying that it was a ‘great name’ adding he was a ‘handsome boy before the pair continued to exchange messages. 

After Sian took to Twitter to share pictures of her conversation with Walter’s owner she was inundated with pictures from other proud pet owners.

‘I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams the sheer number of cats I’ve seen in the last 24hrs and for that I will forever be thankful,’ she wrote.

Walter now has an Instagram account and has attracted thousands of followers

And Walter’s new found fame has led to an Instagram account being set up in his honour – that has amassed more than 5,000 followers in less than 24 hours.

Amongst the posts is advice from the ‘indoor’ cat on the different types of activities to get up to while in quarantine.

The suggestions include ‘lick plastic bags all over the house, particularly in the middle of the night’ and ‘ try out new places to sit that don’t look like they would be at all comfortable, like laptop keyboards or important paperwork.’
