Visitors are flocking from far and wide to Home Depot in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, to see the resident cat that has become a viral TikTok sensation, according to a staff report from Fox 29 Philadelphia.
Videos of the cat that were posted on the popular social media platform by one of the regular shoppers. The feline – along with his many t-shirts – has since amassed a large following.
“The very first one I did, the first day it hit 4.5M (views),” said cat lover Jeff Simpkins. “I’m happy if I get 1,000 views on a video before this.”
The store adopted Leo around a year ago to help keep mice at bay. Simpkins met the cat a little over a month ago while shopping and decided to make a record of his trips to see Leo on TikTok.
A Home Depot employee named Donna is Leo’s main caretaker. She takes the kitty home on holidays and to the vet if and when needed.
“She picks out his food, gives him food and water, he’s in good hands,” said Simpkins.
