Camera catches rescue cat creeping into sisters crib in middle of the night while parents not around

August 6th, 2020

Cats are such funny and mysterious creatures. Sometimes, you know what they’re up to and other times, you have no clue. Although they sleep between 12 and 16 hours a day, it’s during the time they’re awake when you have to be on your toes. That’s just part of what makes them so unique and fun to own.

Rescuing a cat

While some people prefer to purchase a cat from a breeder, others find that rescue kitties are so much more loving. After all, they’re in a shelter where they don’t get much one-on-one time with humans. And if you own a cat or have ever had one, you know just how much they love to snuggle.

Baby kittens

One family decided they wanted to adopt more than one kitten. After looking at several, two, in particular, caught their eye. They were both so small and sweet. They named them Freddie and Vito.

Settling in

At the time the couple adopted the kittens, their daughter was still a baby. She loved playing with both of them, especially Freddie. For some reason, she and this cat formed some kind of special bond. It was hard to explain but quite noticeable.

Growing up together

The cool thing is that their daughter and the kittens grew up together. And while she loved Vito, it was always Freddie that followed her around. Along with playing doctor and dancing with him, she’d sing him sweet songs. It quickly became evident that these two had something special.

A new family member

A few years later, the couple had a baby boy. And just as the kittens had done with their daughter, now as grown cats, they quickly fell in love with him too. Even so, Freddie never turned his full attention away from the girl. After all, this was his best friend.

They couldn’t get enough of each other

If the girl was playing with her toys on the floor, Freddie was right beside her. If she was riding around the house in her miniature car, he was the passenger. They’d often just sit together and have long conversations.

But then something happened

After everyone had gone to bed and all the lights were turned off, the mom and dad discovered something on the camera in their daughter’s bedroom. Freddie, who’d been hiding under her bed, would slowly make his way toward her. Sometimes, she’d sit up and look at him and other times, she slept right through it all.

No worries

The couple wasn’t worried in the least about Freddie. Instead, they found his actions funny. Here was this rescue cat that had more or less adopted their daughter as his own. And he wanted to make sure she was okay…every night. So, he would jump into her crib and if the girl woke up, they’d talk some more.

The patience of a saint

Freddie was never too busy to spend time with his favorite human. Remember, she’s still young in the video shared by her parents so her speech isn’t overly articulate. Yet it’s as though this cat understands and lingers on her every word.

A beautiful life

This little girl, as well as her baby brother, will have many more years to enjoy their kitties. But especially when it comes to Freddie, he’ll likely continue his nightly routine to make sure his person is safe. What a wonderful connection.
