Alyssa was a mom-to-be at eight weeks, when she found a tiny black and white kitten. He couldn’t have been more than eight weeks old either. There was no mother in sight. She didn’t want to leave him to fend for himself, so she brought him home.
She named him Kitten Face. Throughout her pregnancy, he never left her side. When her son was born, the two hit it right off. Not only is the cat her best friend, he’s the best friend of her son too. Kitten Face has paid back her kindness with double helpings of love.
Snuggling together in bed.
At first Kitten Face was hesitant, but he soon settled into his new home.
Alyssa would wake up to this face every morning.
I’ll look after you.
Kitten Face would snuggle with her baby bump, and grew more protective of her, as her child grew.
I’ll always be by your side.
When Alyssa was bed bound, Kitten Face remained by her side. Alyssa says, “This boy became my bestest friend in the whole world.” He even licked her tummy through her contractions.
I missed you!
When she had to be taken to the hospital for an emergency c-section, the cat remained behind. But when she returned back home, he had to have a snuggle with his human.
A new best friend.
Kitten Face immediately fell in love with her son, and stayed by his side, even during naptime.
An inseparable bond!
The two quickly became inseparable!
What? I’m busy!
If Alyssa couldn’t find her cat, he was guaranteed to be beside her son.
Sneaking the snacks.
Her son soon discovered how to share his food with Kitten Face.
Such a beautiful family—Please SHARE if you think cats and kids go together!
