When it comes to the most representative drink in Taiwan, most would say “boba milk tea” without a second’s thought.
Now, this symbolic drink can not only be found everywhere in Taiwan but can also be seen on animals on the island.
A few days ago, Lulu Chen posted a post on a Facebook fan page, “CrazyCat Club.”
The picture shows a baby kitten with a round and light-colored belly with brown circular dots on it, just like a cup of milk tea filled with boba.
The post drew a flurry of comments from social media users, praising it as the “cutest boba milk tea!”
In the post, Chen shared that she had found the baby kitten in the engine of a bus on a typhoon night and not seeing its mother at the time and not wanting to leave it alone in the storm, decided to feed it in and named it “Xiaohu” (Little Tiger).
According to ETtoday, Chen said that “These days, Xiaohu has grown up so fast, and the pattern on her belly has enlarged from ‘small pearls’ to ‘big pearls.'”
She added that picking up the kitten has now become even more similar to the experience of picking up a full cup of boba milk tea.
After posting the “super cute boba milk tea” picture, it immediately went viral with social media users commenting, “Maybe the cat’s mother drank boba milk tea while pregnant.”
Some also wrote that they are proud owners of cats with similar patterns while sharing equally adorable pictures of the same breed.
Others also pointed out that after looking at the picture, they have a sudden craving for the signature drink of Taiwan.
