Harry has lived with his mother since he was a little kitten, and despite his surly and unamused appearances, he is the kindest cat you’ll ever meet, always worried about his family and everything that goes on around him.
Harry’s mother, Beka Smyth, told us, “Harry seems like he hates everyone and everything a lot of the time, yet he is the clingiest, cuddliest boy ever.” “He wants to be a part of everything I do, will yell out for me if I leave the room and he doesn’t know where I’ve gone, and he’s slept straight on my head since he was a little kitten.”
Smyth and her companion were just out shopping when she came saw something that made her halt in her tracks. A huge cat cushion was on the top shelf of the store they were in, and it looked precisely like Harry. The cushion portrayed Harry so beautifully, both in terms of hue and sour face, that Smyth knew she had to buy it.
Smyth gave her new Harry look-alike pillow to Harry as soon as she and her boyfriend arrived home, and he was taken aback at first.
“Harry’s reaction was a little surprising. I expected him to scream out when he saw it, but instead he just stared at me, as if to say, ‘Is this some sort of joke?’” Smyth explained.
Smyth placed the pillow on top of Harry’s kitty tree after the initial encounters, and he promptly climbed up next to it, progressively moving from puzzled to very, very inquisitive.
The cushion, like Harry, moved to the couch the next day. He climbed up onto the couch next to it, sat down, and didn’t move for the rest of the day.
Harry determined that, after his first astonishment, he was actually rather in love with the pillow, and that he wanted to spend as much time as possible with his new best friend.
“He spent the entire day on the sofa next to it, just stepping off now and again to see what I was doing in the study,” Smyth said. “He’s been sitting next to it a lot of the time ever since.”
