In a turn of events that generated much chatter online, an instance featuring an abandoned pet canine in an unattended vehicle stirred an engaging conversation on social media. The incident drew attention owing to a video clip uploaded by a TikTok influencer, aptly titled @mycatsmycup, which brought to light a lonely dog inhabitating a car stationed outside a well-known shopping complex in the bustling city of Bangkok. What was unusual was that a textual message flashed across the car’s digital screen meant to assuage the worries of bystanders – notifying that the automotive’s AC was in full operation, with the owner due back soon. A hot topic was the ethics of pet ownership that the whole scenario raised.
Per the video, the car owner, who remained unknown at the start, had coolly set the vehicle’s indoor temperature to a pleasant 23 degrees Celsius. It was also noticed that a digital sticky note was left on display that read – “My chauffeur will be right back. Stay calm! The AC is functioning.” This clip stirred diverse reactions among the online community, with a widespread commendation for the dog owner’s attention to its comfort. Interestingly, the choice of words to describe themselves as ‘my chauffeur’ instead of ‘the car owner’, threw people into a guessing game about the owner’s elite standing. Some even made conjectures about the car’s make, speculating it to be a Tesla – popular for its pet-accommodating traits.
The pet owner finally made an appearance in the discussion, offering an explanation for their peculiar actions. They conveyed that they were indulging in a shopping spree at a nearby grocery store, and unfortunately, their pet wasn’t allowed inside. Left with no option, they resorted to leaving the dog in the car, after activating the pet-friendly “Dog Mode”. They further stressed the significance of regular outdoor trips for dogs to enable adequate social interaction with other beings, as they justified their actions, reported Sanook.
The importance of proper pet care is being increasingly recognized worldwide.

The footage revealed that bystanders actively participated and offered their help to the woman, showcasing the joint efforts of the community in accomplishing this benevolent act.
