There’s nothing like a bedtime story before settling down for the night – and this feline is no exception.

In a heart-melting video that was recently uploaded to Twitter, a 4-year-old girl named Abby Merryn can be seen reading a bedtime story to her cat, Bailey.


While some cats might not be especially fond of snuggling, Bailey lounges across his buddy’s lap while she reads aloud from a storybook. Every once in a while, he’ll sleepily raise his head so he can gaze at Abby’s face before falling back asleep.

This is not the first time that this has happened, either – according to Abby’s mother, Erin, her daughter regularly curls up to her cat so she can read to him; and he is always the perfect audience.

Erin, who lives in Illinois, adopted Bailey when she was in college 13 years ago. She was drawn to the cat after he literally jumped into her arms and would not let go.

13 years later, he is still sweet as can be.
