Turbo, our Maine Coon kitty, has really developed a liking for Nathan, and will literally seek Nathan out. When Nathan’s in the living room, Turbo will sit near him, nonchalant as Nathan yanks his fur and is even tolerant of a tail pulling or two. He’ll sit on Nathan’s toys so that Nathan has to have contact with him. And when Nathan’s playing in his room, many times I will look over and see Turbo laying quietly at the baby gate that guards Nathan’s door, his eyes glimmering as he watches intently.
Sometimes Nathan will toddle over and squat down to Turbo’s level and engage in Baby Babble, complete with flying spit bubbles and intermittent excited jumping . Turbo will listen patiently while sniffing one of Nathan’s slobbery fingers that invariably finds its way through the openings of the baby gate.
I think Nathan may have a friend for life.
So sweet. We had a cat for a ocuple of years before our first son was born. They were very close. That cat lived to be almost 21, was really hard on my son when the cat died.

That is REALLY old for a cat!! I hope mine can live long, happy lives… and I’m already dreading the day they pass away. Makes me sad just thinking about it!
