An Imgur user by the name of ridureyu shared the touching story. About five years ago, he came across a skinny and scared kitten with no home in his neighborhood.
He decided to feed the little one and after finishing her meal, she walked toward him.
“I wasn’t really a cat person at the time, but I had an idea of how to approach them,” ridureyu mentioned.
The cat then decided to investigate if the hoo-man was safe.
The man chose to see what would happen if he let the cat inside his house. Just about five minutes after being inside, she jumped up on the couch, cuddled his arm and fell asleep purring.
The cat simply would not stop cuddling his arm.
He soon took her to the vet for a check up and to see if anyone was missing a cat but no one claimed her.
He decided to name the cat Bossy and the two have been together ever since.
One thing hasn’t changed at all over the years and it’s that Bossy still cuddles his arm.
She probably believes that his arm exists only for her!
Even while enjoying the warm rays of the sun…
However, only for a little bit and then she gets right back to arm-cuddling. How adorable it that!
What an adorable pair they make!
Imgur ridureyu also went on to write that Bossy helped save him from depression, which isn’t surprising, knowing how therapeutic animals can be.
Pet parents are generally happier and more content and not as lonely, and tend to be more trusting. Companion animals can also surely give you a sense of meaning and boost your self-esteem, and they provide you with positive mental energy, to get technical – they do precisely that by raising serotonin and dopamine levels while decreasing cortisol, just from playing or having a snuggle session.
