The Purr-fect Babysitter

A few years ago, my two-year-old nephew was spending the night with us because the adults in his family were sick. He was perfectly happy playing with his cousins until bedtime, and then he fell apart crying. He didn’t want anybody neared him and just bawled.

My 12-year-old tabby cat came into the bedroom that my nephew was going to share with my older son. He took a look at the situation, hopped up on my nephew’s bed, and started purring, loudly. My nephew calmed down and quickly fell asleep. I checked in through the night to make sure that he was okay. That cat stayed with him all night.

Our kitty passed away last fall, and our favorite story is of how he babysat our nephew through the night.
