They are life goals

Usually, when you don’t have a date to prom, you enlist the services of your sibling, best friend, or you bite the bullet and go stag. Well, 18-year-old Sam Steingard did things differently. The high school senior decided to take an interesting family member.

After his older sister, Caroline, posted the photo of Sam and his date online, it went viral. Viewers posted comments, saying they were shocked that Sam couldn’t get a date to prom. “First of all, your brother is cute af and the girls at his school must be nuts/blind/both,” said one commenter. The photo received over 100,000 views and counting.

Sam’s back-up date was none other than his family’s cat, Ruby. Here, Sam and Ruby posed for a prom picture taken by Sam’s dad, Bryan. Ruby looks prom-ready, donning a pink dress to match Sam’s bowite. I love how she’s looking at Sam in awe, as if she’s so happy she could spend this purrfect night with him.
