VIRAL: Cat welcomes home soldier with big hug


VIRAL: Cat welcomes home soldier with big hug

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Jun 22, 2014

We've shared many touching reaction videos of children reuniting with their parent who's just returning from military duty, however, we've never posted a cat welcoming home his soldier parent ... until now.

Watch above as Finn, a Ragdoll cat, excitedly meows as it paces in front of a door.

"Who's coming? Who's coming? Do you hear him?" Finn's female owner asks as she continues to record. 

Finn even stands up tall, at the :17 second mark, with his paws on the door knob as if to skip the waiting and just open the door himself.

"Who's home? Is it Daddy? It's Daddy isn't it?," the unidentified female continues.

When soldier Nick finally opens the door, he asks Finn, "What's going on? Buddy, it's me," to which the cat takes a flying leap and lands directly in Nick's arms for a big hug and a kiss.

Boo, the couple's Siamese cat, sits and watches the homecoming with a little more patience and a much quieter reaction than its sibling.

Cat Welcomes Home Solider (awesome) was posted in late April, however, it has just recently gone viral with more than a million views.
