Earning a cat's affection is normally not easy. They are naturally suspicious creatures, especially those of them who may not have come from the best of circumstances, so for them to show their humans trust and love is not an easy task. Some cats will take a few days to get used to their new environment and people and will grow to trust you quickly. Others might take years.
A post on Reddit went viral of someone sharing the absolute unparalleled joy they felt when their cat finally chose to rest on them for the first time in 10 whole years. Goodness, was the wait for it. Other users chimed in, sharing their own stories of their cats finally, finally, choosing them, and we found each one of them incredibly heartwarming.
