He doesn’t even own a cat 😂
Andrew Falloon’s father just underwent surgery and has been recovering at home since. While physicians’ prescriptions for plenty of bed rest might be a little restrictive at times, it’s not something Falloon’s father has had to deal with alone.
Evidently, one bewhiskered local heard that Dad might use some company — and proceeded to provide it in the most charming way conceivable.
“My mother went out to perform some errands and accidentally left one of the doors slightly open,” Falloon explained to us. “She returned home to see Dad and [this cat] snuggled together on the couch.”
Though it wasn’t quite a one-sided embrace, the stray kitty’s friendly gesture was nonetheless lovely. Despite the fact that Falloon’s father was sleeping, they ended up holding hands as they dozed away together. He had no idea the whole time.
“My father has never been a huge fan of cats, so I think he was as astonished as anybody when Mum woke him up,” Falloon said.
Falloon’s parents eventually discovered the cat’s name is Ziggy. He’s a nice neighborhood cat that has been known to stop by other people’s houses to say hi on occasion.
On this particular day, though, his visit was more similar to a house call.
What about after the nap? “Dr. Ziggy lingered for a little kiss before heading off to his next appointment,” Falloon explained.
It’s hard to determine how much Ziggy’s unprompted snuggle session benefited Falloon’s father’s recovery. However, as everyone knows, spending time with a cute kitty is always beneficial for the soul.
“After his procedure, Dad is well and fully on the mend,” Falloon added.
Excellent work, Ziggy!
