Nosey was quite distant when he first met his family. Although he has always been a solitary cat, his mother believed he could gain from having a companion, and she was entirely correct.
About a year and a half after Baby joined the household, Nosey and he became best friends.
“They are legit BEST FRIENDS,” Rosa Leger, the pair’s mom, told The Dodo. “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.”
Leger just left on a week’s vacation, leaving Nosey and Baby alone for the first time for longer than a few days. They were both hiding whenever she visited even though she had a pet sitter coming to check on them. Due to Baby’s strong attachment to his mother, she was a little concerned about how he might react without her.
He was lucky to have Nosey.
One day while she was gone, Leger checked one of the cameras and saw the sweetest thing she’d ever seen. It seemed that Baby was feeling anxious about Mom being away.
He was sitting in front of Nosey and all of a sudden leaned into him — and Nosey immediately put his arm around him to comfort him. The whole scene was so adorable and showed how much the brothers truly love each other.
Leger said, “He’s been consoling his brother from the start. They have definitely become closer after this encounter. Even more than his big brother, my little one adores him. If he hadn’t had his brother’s love and protection, I can’t even begin to picture how he would have been. I genuinely didn’t believe that animals could love in this way, yet they do.
The cats were obviously delighted to see Leger when she eventually returned, but even so, they were certain that they could survive without her since they had each other.
