Little boy finally makes adorable "breakthrough" after tirelessly trying to pet neighbor's cat
After a year long battle trying to win the affection of a neighbor's cat, this little boy finally made a breakthrough.
"It's been complex to say the least," the little boy's father shared on reddit. "Cats don't react well to preschoolers running up to them, despite him having the best of intentions and only wanting to stroke them."
"The way which eventually worked was to show the boy that cats need to smell you before you start stroking them, that and to not chase after them if they run away. Seems to work as now he's reaping the rewards until the cat walks off before parroting "kitties need personal space" and letting him go with no fuss."
"I am officially happy :)"
"Yes hooman. This is adequate."
Teach em young! Cats are friends!
This dad and son are doing it right :)
