Who ever said that only dogs could be good boys? Cats have their own personalities and many of them love to show affection (even if they act aloof)! These photos of cats being good boys are sure to prove that your feline friend has some inkling of love inside of it. No matter their reputation, cats can be just as loving and caring as other animals can!
1. Ace’d it!
This furry friend, Ace, held his younger sister like this once she got back from the vet. He must have sensed that it was a traumatic experience for her! This is one big brother that any cat would be honored to have.
2. Pillow Cat
Who needs Tempur-Pedic when you have a cat! This baby is getting some much-needed rest after a long day of eating and sleeping. Human babies and cats may not be so different after all — they both just want milk and a nap.
3. Comfort Cat
Dogs are famously known for knowing when someone is sad and comforting them. Well, did you know cats can do the same thing? This black cat isn’t unlucky at all, he knows when to lend a paw and offer his comfort.
4. Hospital Buddy
Hospitals are not fun places to spend large amounts of time. Nona wanted to see her cat for Christmas so they brought in Henry. He spent the entire day curled up on her lap!
When the kids need someone to experiment on, who else but the household cat? This is one good boy for sitting and tolerating this for so long. Most cats would get up and leave pretty quickly!
6. Dr. Pepper the cat
This pup, Kodiak, was scared because the neighbors were shooting off fireworks. They were so loud he ran to his bed and hid. Who came to his side for comfort? Dr. Pepper the cat!
7. Foster cat parent
When the new foster kitty (brown) came to visit for a little while, it seems he made a friend. How can you separate these two? I am sure that he found a forever home after this scene.
8. Mittens the therapy cat
When Lilly needed to have surgery at the vet, it took a lot out of her. Thankfully, she had a friend waiting for her when she got home. Mittens, besides being a chunky boy, is licensed in cat therapy in all 50 states.
9. Guardian Kitty
Ever since this boy was born, he has had a feline protector. I wouldn’t want to get in the way of that cat protecting his friend! He looks like he is saying, “Don’t you dare wake this boy up.”
10. Chicken guard
While most cats make it their goal to “acquire” birds, this one likes to protect them. He even blends in a bit with the chickens because of his colors! No chicken must fear when this cat is on duty.
11. LifeAlert Cat
When this woman fell, her cat sat with her until the ambulance showed up to help. It seems like LifeAlert came with a furry companion this time! I am sure he provided some much-needed comfort.
12. Friends for life
These two seem inseparable. They seem to be watching outside for something. The cat is probably looking for birds and the kid is probably looking for his friends!
Who says that only dogs can learn tricks? While cats may be motivated a bit differently, this cat sure pleased its owner by learning how to high five. She seems a bit nervous still — look at her face!
14. “Just helping him clean behind his ears”
Dogs never can reach that spot behind their ears, but here is one cat who is happy to help! Whether it’s an impromptu bath or a helpful lick, it seems this cat is up for the task.
15. Cats and lizards?
These two go together like peanut butter and mayonnaise. Wait, what? Have you ever seen a funnier duo? Cats and lizards may just be the coolest combo we have ever seen.
16. The shelter didn’t know what they were talking about
When this family was taking home Odin from the shelter, they were told, “Odin doesn’t like cuddling and didn’t like to be around children.” This was him the first night back at the house.
17. Right in the feels…
After this woman broke her hip and was in the hospital, her cat, Vincent, came to visit every day. They always ended up snuggling and falling asleep in each other’s arms. Now we’re crying.
18. Outdoor cat
This cat owner says that “this cat tolerates the love of this little boy since the day he was born and in a way I never thought possible.” Well if that isn’t cute, I don’t know what is. Love is sacrifice, right?
19. He lost a friend…
When Pepe went to his friend’s room, he was heartbroken to realize she was gone. The empty room was his owner’s roommate who had recently moved out.
20. “I’m not on the counter”
This cat isn’t allowed on the counter so he is testing his limits. He just wants to be a part of the conversation, and can you blame him?
21. “Boop to love”
This cat taught her new friend that she has to headbutt things if she likes them. In cat language, this makes a lot of sense. For a human, it is just downright cute.
22. Dr. Cat reporting in
This owner is fostering a cat while she is in medical school and all of their studying sessions turn into this! While it may not be productive for the class, it is definitely productive for the heart.
23. True friends
A good friend is worth more than gold. These cats have learned that lesson and are lifelong friends. Even though they are different, they are the best of buds and will always be there for each other.
24. Caffeinated cat
What is funnier than a kitten? A caffeinated kitten! While this cat obviously didn’t drink coffee, it sure looks like it. This fluffball looks like it has some serious energy.
25. Nothing but admiration
This cat was caught admiring his owner’s pregnant wife. He seems to be completely in awe of this woman. This baby is going to have a good friend.
26. Nap buds
Having a nap buddy is underrated. This duo knows how to do it! No matter the time of day, a cat is always willing to take a nap with a friend.
27. Goodest cat you have ever seen
This is one happy cat! He just can’t take his eyes off of his friend. You may be able to walk this cat without a leash outside — it seems to want to stick close.
28. Death by cat snuggles
We know that this man went peacefully and with fur in his mouth. I guess there are some perks to being a vet. The constant snuggles you get have to be one of them.
29. Cool, Calm, and Collected
Even though this cat is about to go into surgery, he seems to be absolutely chill. This good boy, Huxley, is about to breeze through this surgery.
30. Leopard cat cuddles
This guy was told that Bengals didn’t like to cuddle, but it turns out they were wrong! This is one cuddly leopard, when it’s not hunting of course.
31. This cat is heartbreaking
When this family lost their cat, Elise, they had a photo of her framed and placed on the mantle. Their new kitten found a spot to sleep and it is directly under their picture of her!
32. Missing brother
This owner’s brother moved out and the next morning he woke up to this. This chubby kitty misses his friend and was looking all around the room for him.
33. All cats just want to be petted
This random cat walked up and just wanted to be pet. I guess at the heart of many animals is the desire to be loved and accepted. Wait, I guess that applies to humans too!
34. Eugene the feral cat
Eugene was a feral cat that was living in someone’s garden. The owner built a shelter and would slowly earn the trust of the cat. When it got really cold one night he brought him inside. Two months later and this is him now!
35. Trail blazer kitty
When this hiker got lost, this cat guided him down the mountain. Animals always seem to have an incredible sense of direction that humans just can’t match!
