We love cats because they're argubally the greatest thing since sliced bread.
They comfort us in times of need without being overbearing like the more demanding dog, and this adorable, loving British Shorthair proved why we love these unique animals so much.
Noticing that its owner's child was in emotional distress, it came to its aid by gently licking the sad boy's ear as he rolled on the floor in despair.
The cat then stays with the boy for the remainder of the video, assuring the crying child that everything is going to be okay.
This love and affection are so beautiful the human mother couldn't help but take a video of the endearing moment for the whole world to see how special these animals are.
