This woman rescued a cat when she was in college but had no idea her future daughters would love him SO much

Now over a decade later, the cat named Bailey is still with her. He has become the guardian angel to her children and shares an amazing bond with her 4-year-old daughter Abby.

Bailey is 13 year old male tabby. He has his own book coming out April 2019.

Erin met Bailey when she was a student in college. Little Bailey hopped into her arms, grabbed her with his paws and wouldn’t let go.

“He fought with everything he had to keep me from closing the cage after hours sitting on the floor with him. I was attached immediately and decided that I would take a risk and try hiding a kitten in my college dorm where animals are obviously not allowed,” Erin told Love Meow.

Erin snuck Bailey into her dorm on the 8th floor, and a week later she was caught and given 48 hours to remove the cat. “I was heartbroken. My parents already had a dog and two cats at home, and they were not about to take another one in.” However, after time to time of convincing her parents, she was able to keep Bailey by her side.

“But it was love at first sight, and I captured some darling photos of her as a newborn with him,” Erin said

Bailey stayed by Abby’s side, guarding, snuggling and showering her with love and purrs. As Abby grew, he became her protective brother, watching over her every step of the way.

The sweet ginger cat was there when Abby started crawling. He was there to witness her first spoken word.

Now, Bailey wouldn’t want to miss all the wonderful adventures along with Abby and follow her everywhere around the house.

“This is so cute. I love when he is sat at the table wearing the bunny ears. lol. Such a patient cat. He’s like a stuffed animal toy come to life.”

“She’s right no ordinary cat would sit through all that stuff, I know mines wouldn’t”

“I love happy endings. I’m glad Bailey has a loving family!”
