  • Our cat walks away every time our son tries to touch it. And he wants to pet it so bad. When he meets other cats outside, he pets them gently and sit with them for a long time. One time he said "I love other cats, but not ours".

    Today he's at home with a fever. He is weak and tired. The cat came and laid down close to him, and let him run his fingers though his grey fur for as long as he wanted.
