A tuxedo cat named Socks in San Antonio became a viral sensation when he brought a lady friend home one day. The cat’s love life became like a soap opera, drawing over 40.5 million viewers on TikTok. While everyone loved the sordid love affair, it’s a good reminder that cats that go outdoors can often get into lots of unexpected drama and danger.
One morning, Socks, a fixed cat, arrives on the front porch with his pretty Snowshoe lady friend, who later gets a cute name chosen by viewers. Sock’s dad Joel gave her some food as he took the video, and afterward, the two cats remained inseparable until late into the nighttime.
It was a great day for Socks, but something was brewing that Joel would find out later.
“Socks brought back a random girl cat this morning,” the TikTok says.

Congratulations, You Now Have 2 Cats!
After the video of Socks and his girlfriend blew up, everyone knew she was there to stay. Sure enough, Joel found Socks hiding with his girlfriend in an unexpected little Sugar Shack beneath the home! Purrhaps this had been their love den for some time?
“That is your daughter-in-law now,” someone said.
“They need to have the door cracked if he’s going to have a girl over,” another person said.
“That’s the rules I grew up with,” Joel replied.
Others began giving Joel ideas for her name, like Shoes, Mittens, or Sandals.
“Everyone naming her Shoes, but what about Sandals? You’re not supposed to wear socks with Sandals but forbidden romances are best,” someone wrote.
The Soap Opera of Socks and Sandals
Socks and Sandals had many wild nights together. One night, Joel found him with an empty glass on the porch passed out cold from what must have been a long night of partying hard.
Well, soon, Socks was fighting for his lady when her baby daddy showed up at the house. It appeared that Socks was victorious, driving off the tomcat. As you may have guessed, the female was pregnant and seeking a safe place to give birth, and Socks was only too happy to defend her. Fortunately, he wasn’t injured in the skirmish.
Fortunately, Joel was happy to take Sandals in and give her the name she seemed to prefer, Sandals. She’s a very friendly cat, so we wonder if someone in the area was looking for her. Regardless, she would get checked out by a veterinarian and fixed after giving birth. Then, Socks decided to bring her indoors, and she was happy to be safe inside.
Socks and Sandals Tumultous Relationship
The drama continued when Sandals decided to turn on Socks, smacking him, only to make up soon after. She was like, ‘Sorry bae. You know I come from the streets,’ someone joked.
By now, the account was completely taken over by fans wanting constant updates on the cat’s love life. For now, it looks like Sandals is enjoying the comfy indoor life and has all she needs for the day her kittens arrive. For more, you can follow on TikTok.
We hope Socks and Sandals will be together forever and her kittens find wonderful homes. A cat having kittens can lead to all kinds of cuteness but also lots of responsibility, often heartbreaking tragedies, and unforeseen dramas. We hope this soap opera has a happy ending and Sandals is spayed when she’s ready and becomes in indoor kitty with her bae.
