Prom can be a really important time in young peoples' lives, and there's a lot of social pressure to show up with a date.
Sadly for Imgur user caroline12006's brother Sam, he wasn't able to find a companion for the evening. That's when he decided to take his cat Ruby instead.
They bought her a beautiful little dress to match his bow tie, and the resulting picture is totally adorable.
The cat genuinely looks in love with him, and we're willing to bet he was the most popular guy at the prom after this stunt.
