Cat comforts his anxious brother while mom’s away [Video]

  • Nosey had always been an independent cat. 
  • His mom thought he’d benefit from having a friend.
  • A new cat joined the family, and the two have been inseparable ever since.

Nosey was rather aloof when he initially joined his family. He’s always been a loner, but his mom thought he’d benefit from having a pal – and she was right.

Baby joined the family around a year and a half ago and has been inseparable from Nosey ever since.

Rosa Leger, the pair’s mom, told The Dodo:

“They are legit BEST FRIENDS. They cuddle all day and play-fight 24/7. When I first got Nosey, he was a bit aggressive and very alone. This baby has brought sunshine into his life. He loves to play now and loves to cuddle his brother. He’s super protective over him and is always bathing him.”


For the first time, Nosey and Baby were left alone for more than a few days when Leger went away for a week. Even though a pet sitter came to check on them, they would both hide whenever she came over. She was concerned since Baby is extremely close to his mother, and she didn’t know how he would cope without her.

Good thing he had Nosey.

Leger checked one of the cameras one day while she was gone and saw the loveliest thing she’d ever seen. It seems like Baby was anxious about Mom’s absence. He was seated in front of Nosey when he suddenly leaned into him, and Nosey comforted him by putting his arm over him.

The entire event was wonderful and demonstrated the brothers’ undying affection for one another.

According to Leger, Nosey has comforted Baby from the beginning.

“This experience has [definitely] brought them closer together. My little one loves his big brother even more. I can’t imagine how he would’ve been if he didn’t have his brother’s love and protection. I honestly didn’t think this kind of love could exist within animals, but it truly does.”


When Leger returned, the cats were overjoyed to see her, but they knew they’d be fine without her since they had each other.

I love these pictures and stories. I love animals anyway and I loved the story of the Amazon driver saving the cat.
