A two-year-old boy named Sam loves kittens. But he does not just consider them soft living toys, like most small children, but takes care of them very seriously. Sam can even be assigned to bottle-feed kittens.
It all started six months ago when Sam’s mom Lacy adopted little kittens from a shelter to take care of them temporarily. Lacey and Sam live in California and help kittens from a shelter.
“It turned out to be one of the best ideas of my life,” Lacy admits.
Her little son Sam was very excited about the appearance of kittens in the house. His eyes lit up with interest as he examined them and probably tried to figure out what they were, what looked like his big ginger cat, only very small.
Lacy at first did not let Sam keep the kittens himself, afraid that he might accidentally harm them, but Sam was unexpectedly gentle. While Lacy held the kitten, the boy gently stroked its fur with one little finger.
From that day on, communication with kittens became regular for Lacy and Sam. Sam greets the kittens, calls them cute and adorable, and strokes them carefully and gently. He says “They love me and I love them.”
