This video of a shelter cat has gone viral online for the most adorable, yet heartbreaking reason. In it, Barney (the cat’s name) is holding on tightly to his human visitor as she shows him some love… And he doesn’t want to let go!
This is proof that even giants can have the softest of hearts; Barney is HUGE, but he is giving this human all of his love and affection. After it was posted on June 29, the video quickly went viral on Facebook, and for good cause! It’s an amazing display of the power of love. It’s already been shared over 110 000 times and viewed over 5.5 million times.
Jessica Jean Parken, who is pictured in the video, explained the story behind Barney in a comment under the video. People were commenting that she should adopt him, but although she wanted to, Barney ended up with another loving family. It would have been unwise for her to take Barney, since she already has a senior cat, which would have had lots of trouble adjusting to a new cat’s presence.
