“[There was] a loud bang and … 5 hours at the hospital confirmed that I was STRUCK BY LIGHTNING through the open window!

“Never going to play cute cat games during a thunderstorm again. I’m fine, just very sore, hell of a headache and burn stripes down my arm.”

Ironically, when he was struck, he was playing a game called “Stray” where you control a stray cat who is lost.
