Finding a date for prom may be a stressful experience. What did Sam Steingard do when he couldn’t find a date for Prom?
Instead of traveling alone or refusing to attend at all, the 18-year-old decided to do what any sensible and sound-minded person would do: he opted to bring his cat, Ruby.
To be fair, he didn’t actually take the cat to the dance, but he did pose for some prom photos with her before leaving.
Caroline, Sam’s sister, decided to share the images with the world by uploading them to Imgur. As they say, the rest is history, and Sam and Ruby are now internet celebrities for life.
