If you’ve ever wanted to see the love that can be demonstrated between a child and their cat, then look no further than this amazing set of photos posted by Reddit user sympson2612. This beautiful cat, named Tommy is a rescue kitten that the family never thought twice about keeping. Ever since the family rescued Tommy, he has formed an unbreakable bond with their four year old son.
“He is the sweetest, funniest, most patient cat I have ever met,” said the proud dad of Tommy’s relationship with his son. “We are sold on ‘adopting’ stray cats from now on!”
Even more beautiful is the fact that Tommy is tucked in by the lovable child every single time that Tommy gets ready for a nap. In his own little way, he’s telling Tommy that his worries of being on the street are over and that the family is there to protect him. Taking it a step further there’s another story that shows just how strong their bond is.
Coming home from the vet
Tommy had to visit the vet one day. When he returned home, the youngster wanted to make sure that he was well cared for. Dad had taught his son about what a veterinarian does and even brought him to the hospital to let him see firsthand how Tommy would be treated. Tommy has inspired his little human to want to become a great vet some day.
Of course, Dad makes sure to be around when his son tucks Tommy in to sleep and, sometimes, even joins him in a nice little nap.
