It is not always easy to explain in words all those years that this cat and his human shared together.
Ryan Temple explained through reddit that this little buddy has been a part of his life for 22 years, literally since Ryan was born.
More specifically, he has been with Ryan for 21 years, but he is 22 years old.
His parents adopted him and when they found that they were pregnant with Ryan, they wanted to make the family even bigger with a cat.
What a lovely story. What an unshakable bond!
