you see, that's why you're just the @OKWildlifeDept and not the @GreatWildlifeDept— Alexandxor (@ID10TErrors) January 21, 2022
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation sent out a Tweet a couple of days ago that referenced an old animal welfare campaign that said, "If you're cold, they're cold. Bring them in." It was about not leaving your cats and dogs outside when the temperature drops. That doesn't apply to wild predators, or at least it didn't until the phrase became a meme.
This being the internet, the Tweet had the opposite effect of making folks want a mountain lion in their house. Or at least the chance to pet one. Hey, look, the kitty is offering its belly for rubs!
That’s a lot to put on a headstone, but okay! 😂— June Heinz 🌈✊🏾🌈 (@june_heinz) January 21, 2022
The wildlife office wasn't going to put up with such nonsense.
But the internet as whole has a serious case of toxoplasmosis.
I think by now you can guess the wildlife department's favorite TV show. The wildlife folks took it all in stride and made a corgi meme about the Tweet, which was gradually expanded to include an entire pack of corgis.

The original Tweet has a growing number of jokes, memes, and cat pictures underneath, but you also need to check out the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's feed to catch updates on the situation. -via Fark
