Cats are generally seen as the snootier, more aloof family pet, aren't they? And there are, oh, millions of Internet memes to prove it.
Well these gorgeous videos, taken over six years apart, refute that, and beautifully.
When six-year old Erin was a newborn her parents posted a video of her sleeping, snuggled into her pet Burmese cats – and over six years later, a video posted by her dad showsthat her cats are still loyally by her side.
In both videos the love and affection between Erin and these stunning creatures is palpable – prompting us to marvel at the bond that can exist between children and animals.
