God knows where our cats go on their jaunts.

But one man knows exactly where his one went because the photos were up on Zoopla.

Michael Hubank, who heads up Clinical Genomics at the Royal Marsden Hospital, found out his cat had a secret life next door.

When Michael went to check his neighbour Ronnie’s property on the estate company’s website, he was stunned to see something of his in the bedroom – beloved pet Freddy.

The naughty cat was captured having a lie-in on the neighbour’s bed.

Michael thought Freddy had frequented Ronnie’s place every once in a while but didn’t realise how comfortable the kitty was at the house next door.

When he shared it on his Twitter, people couldn’t get enough, and it seems many have had the same experience with their pets.

Michael explained to Metro.co.uk: ‘We found him on Zoopla because Ronnie told us they were putting the place up for sale and so my wife had a look on Zoopla (as you do), and there he was. The cheeky little so and so. I think Zoopla has changed the pictures since which is a pity!

‘We knew Freddy goes into Ronnie’s house, but we thought it was for a bit of a fuss and the odd saucer of milk.

‘But just look a the little so and so. It looks like he owns the place!

It’s not just Ronnie’s place that Freddy gets comfortable in.

‘He is well known in the street.’ said Michael. ‘Often known by different names. Apparently one neighbour calls him Tibby, another Leo. He’s shameless.’

The viral fame has also been an interesting experience for Michael.

‘It’s been funny. I am trying to work as I run the cancer testing lab at the Royal Marsden in Sutton and have things to prepare for tomorrow and it’s been hard to concentrate because my phone is going berserk.

‘The threads have been really nice though. It seems half the country has a story about unfaithful cats to share and have spent the day doing so!

‘I tweeted it because I was gobsmacked how comfortable the bloody cat looked. Then I went for a cycle ride. When I got home my daughter had contacted me from Sheffield to say it had gone viral. Strange day!’
