One 13-year-old cat is taking the world by storm. Meet Bailey; truly no ordinary cat.
This loving ginger Tabby chose his furever human Erin Merryn, back in 2004 when she was in college. Unfortunately, the dorms she was living in did not allow pets, but that didn’t stop her from sneaking him in!
When she and Bailey were busted a week later, she had to make a difficult decision. She was forced to give him up. The sweet cat that had won her heart was placed into another home with an elderly woman.
The forced decision broke Erin’s heart. When the winter break from school approached, she received an update on Bailey and his new home. He was not fitting in well with the woman’s other animals.
Erin now had a month off of school to convince her parents that Bailey belonged with their family. With 2 other felines and a dog at home however, this was going to make her task very difficult.
Luckily she won mom over and states that although dad never officially “appurroved” the addition to the family, Bailey was welcomed into their home!
As life progressed, Bailey and Erin bonded closely through their journey.
When Erin became pregnant in 2014, she worried that the new baby would affect their relationship. She was right, but could never have imagined the amazing and positive way in which it did!
Bailey took to her new belly bump with all the brotherly love in the world.
When baby Abby was born, Bailey immediately claimed her for his own and doted on her every minute.
This extraordinary feline was by her side for every momentous occasion in her development.
As Abby grew, she and her new best friend Bailey, shocked Erin with their bond and gentle nature towards each other. Fortunately for the world, Erin captured the unbelievable moments on camera and has happily shared.
The adorable duo snuggle together during nap times.
Bailey calmly allows “Dr. Abby” to attend to his veterinary needs.
The family was then blessed in 2016 with another addition, sister Hannah. And true to form, Bailey welcomed her with open paws.
Now, the sisters and their brother Bailey are winning the hearts of the world through their innocence and pure love for each other.
Never was there a more chill cat.
Bailey happily allows the girls to indulge in dressing him up and lavishing him with love…and spa days!
Serenades fill the air and holiday memories are celebrated as a beautiful family.
He attends “school” and looks like he may be the most attentive student this day.
Bailey now has his own Facebook, YouTube and Instagram pages as this “anything but ordinary cat” is thrust into stardom. When Erin shared a video of Abby reading to Bailey, there was no stopping the public from falling head over heels with the siblings.
Be sure to follow Bailey’s on social media…that is, IF you can handle the most adorable photos and videos without your heart exploding!!!
And with baby #3 on the way, there are only sure to be even more overwhelmingly precious pics to come.
