Unwanted Cat Becomes This Little Boy’s Guardian, Following Him Everywhere

ADVERTISEMENT

Meet Larry the ginger cat, given up by his owner for breaking into the food cabinet. He was adopted by a woman named Michelle, and soon became her son, Abel’s, guardian. Larry fell in love with Abel the moment they met.

“When Abel cries Larry runs over to comfort him,” said Michelle. “Abel makes sure Larry is with him when he moves from one room to another. Larry tolerates more than I’d ever imagined a cat could or would tolerate.”

Larry was given away after his vet owner caught him in the food cupboard one time too many

So mom Michelle decided to take Larry in

Abel and Larry immediately became best friends

Abel’s first word was even “Yarry” (baby for “Larry”)!

Now, Larry follows Abel around everywhere

I joined Bored Panda as an image editor back in 2014, during its early stages. It's been quite a journey since then! Over time, I transitioned through different roles until I eventually became the Content Lead. In this position, I now oversee the creation of the viral content published here on Bored Panda. While my primary focus lies in raising awareness about important social issues like gender and race equality, as well as mental health topics, I also enjoy sharing lighter content, such as memes, cat images and intriguing world curiosities. Outside of work, you'll likely find me engaged in one of five activities: planning a vacation, browsing thrift stores, experimenting in the kitchen, watching movies, or spending quality time with my two cats.

No wonder "Yarry" was raiding the food cupboard. Apparently he was starved... for love. What a precious solution!
