Quick Smiles:

  • A husband’s unique strategy to cheer up his wife using their cats, Winston and Spooky, has gone viral on TikTok, earning over 815,000 views and nearly 130,000 likes.
  • The husband’s method involves placing their cats onto his wife whenever she is stressed, mad, or sad – a tactic she claims is infallibly successful in boosting her mood.
  • According to the National Institute of Health, interacting with animals can decrease stress-related hormones, lower blood pressure, and generally improve mood, lending scientific support to the husband’s clever approach.

In the quest for the perfect cheer-up strategy, one husband may have cracked the code with a purr-fect solution — and social media is absolutely loving it.

Shared on TikTok by user @winstonandspooky, a playful and heartwarming video features a husband’s unique approach to lifting his wife’s spirits when she’s feeling down.

His secret?

Their adorable cats, Winston and Spooky.

As the video shows, he picks up the feline duo and places them directly onto his wife — a strategy that according to her, works like a charm every single time.


“Our very own, homemade mood booster,” the wife jovially captioned the video, adding, “This method is foolproof.”

And it appears that there’s a science to back up this husband’s ingenious trick.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that interacting with animals can indeed diminish levels of cortisol, a hormone linked to stress, and lower blood pressure.

Even more fascinating is that animals can also help alleviate feelings of loneliness, increase social support, and overall improve mood.

The NIH website also provides an interesting insight: “A recent study showed that caring for fish helped teens with diabetes better manage their disease.”

It seems that the animal kingdom has many stress-relieving secrets up their sleeves (or should we say paws?).


As one might expect, this adorable video quickly went viral, attracting cat lovers and mood-boost seekers from across the TikTok platform.

With over 815,000 views and close to 130,000 likes, it’s clear that this ‘feline therapy’ struck a chord.

In the comment section, many users chimed in with their experiences and approval of the method.

Jenna wrote: “This would 100% work for me.”

User chriskay918 added, “Kitties! Yass, best thing ever.”

Meanwhile, some users, like Terah (Taylor’s Version), shared how their partners employ similar tactics: “My husband usually wakes up before me and he brings our cat in to give me snuggles. he knows I’m grumpy in the mornings so it helps.”


As user tangosierra 227 wisely noted: “This man has it figured out.”

So, next time you’re feeling a little down, maybe reaching for your furry friend could be the mood-boosting solution you need!
