  • The video showcasing Fig’s journey has amassed over 2.6 million views and 527,000 likes, prompting a wave of love and admiration from viewers around the world.

Step aside, Internet cats of yore.

There’s a new feline sensation in town and she’s tiny, adorable, and she’s got her backyard kingdom meticulously arranged just for her!

Fig, a dwarf cat, has been winning hearts worldwide after a TikTok video showcasing her newly adapted garden went viral.

Shared by Fig’s owner, @figgypuddin_, the video features the diminutive cat navigating her custom-designed space.

Her owners have thoughtfully modified their backyard to accommodate Fig’s special needs, owing to her feline dwarfism which makes her appear kitten-sized forever and leads to certain mobility issues.

“This is Fig. She is a dwarf cat. She’s got feline dwarfism which means she’s very tiny,” Fig’s owner can be heard explaining in the video.


She goes on to describe Fig’s unique path to the garden and her dedicated toilet patch, carefully arranged to save her the discomfort of using stairs.

According to Pet Coach, pituitary dwarfism results from the inadequate production of growth hormones, which stunts the growth rate of affected kittens.

The disorder does not affect the proportion of the body and head size but results in the kitten remaining much smaller than its littermates.

However, Fig is far from being overshadowed.

On the contrary, the video showcasing her delightful journey through the garden has swept the Internet by storm, amassing over 2.6 million views and 527,000 likes on TikTok alone.

The comments section is overflowing with love for the petite feline.


User Kira unabashedly proclaimed, “not to be dramatic but I would die for fig.”

Meanwhile another, Nimbus, admired the dedicated setup, commenting, “Her little ramps, it’s so sweet seeing how much you care for her.”

Thea gushed, “Miss figgy pudding in her white socks, this is too cute.”

Through her viral fame, Fig is not just melting hearts but also raising awareness about the needs and care required for pets with special conditions.

It’s truly a purr-fect win!
