Kitty Greets Military Dad Everyday With A Giant Leaping Hug.

One of the best perks of being a pet owner is the greeting you get as soon as you walk in the door after a long day at work. There’s nothing quite like the love you feel when someone is that excited to see your face. Still, some pets are better at the whole greeting thing than others.

Typically, when you think of a warm pet welcome, a dog comes to mind. However, for one lucky soldier, his cat has mastered the art of a warm welcome home hug.


His wife Hailey, posted a compilation video online with the caption, “How our cat greets (only) my husband every day after getting homeâ€. Apparently, this cat’s heart belongs only to its dad, sorry mom.

In every scene of the video, the soldier comes in the front door where the cat is eagerly awaiting his attention. The man pats his chest a couple of times and the cat leaps into the air to go in for a hug. The man always catches his little friend, and the two embrace as if it had been years between meetings.


Check out the adorable welcome home greeting in the compilation video below and be sure to share this with all of your pet loving friends!
