Most people don’t think of cats as loving, comforting pets, and are incapable of giving the kind of affection that you get from a dog, but contrary to that belief, cats are capable of offering the same kind of love and care to their owners. Take for instance, a little girl in Japan, she is the owner of Hima the cat and when the little girl hurt her foot on a chair, like most children would do, the little girl began to cry and Hima was instantly right there to comfort her with loving snuggles.
A video was taken of the event and it received over 9 lakh views on Imgur. The video showed Hima, the Russian Blue cat, snuggling against the little girl while she as crying from the pain. The video is proof that cats do have the ability to be loving and caring, and show concern for their human.
Hima has her own Instagram account and she has over 2,600 followers. She has gotten quite a few comments about the video and many have been sparked to memories of their own cat giving them comfort when they needed it. Here are a few comments Hima and her owner have received:
“Look at me, human. Look at me. Now, you are a lovely human and there’s no need to cry, no look at me, I’m serious. You good human,” writes a commenter, imagining what Hima would say if she could talk.
“Aww, sweet little thing. My little boy would comfort me when I’d have a breakdown, don’t get when people say cats don’t love their people,” says another.
So many different types of animals have been found to show their care and concern for humans and although some may surprise us, it shows us that when we need our pets the most, they can be there for us to make feel better. Hima is one who proved she really loves her owner.
