A stray cat has gone viral on TikTok for the cutest reason after it became the first furry student at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).
Fondly known as Pak Tam, the cat, who wears a black collar with a bell attached to it, even has its own student ID card which includes a printed UPM logo, a student photo, a barcode and some other personal details.
While some may assume that it was just another ordinary student ID card, one quirky feature of Pak Tam’s ID card was the barcode which came along with the following note: “If this cat is lost, please return it to this address.”
Turns out that the barcode actually states the location that Pak Tam needs to go if he loses his way. Cools!

The TikTok video has since garnered more than 333.2K views and 48K likes at the time of writing.
Netizens were amused by Pak Tam’s cute ID card and asked in the comment section what course he was majoring in at UPM.
And the answer can be found in the ID card itself, where it states: PhD of Meow Language.

Many were amazed by the Pak Tam’s ability to pursue a PhD and wished all the best in his future studies.
“Wow…I’m still struggling with my degree.”
“His student card looks so much better than mine.”
“Dr. Pak Tam next year! Good luck (for) PhD!”
Shortly after the first TikTok video went viral, TikTok user @dakdung7 uploaded another video of of Pak Tam taking a nap in his hostel.
