On a warm day in Canberra, Australia, Ali Safa decided he wanted to relax and take a nap in his garden. Safa settled into a chair and started snoozing.
When Safa woke up, he felt something heavy lying against his chest. He looked down and saw a stray cat sleeping on him!
Safa was naturally shocked to find the cat on his chest.
“I was taking a nap on the balcony of our house, and, like two hours later, I woke up and I found her just napping on my stomach,” Safa told The Dodo. “At first, I thought she was a rat.”
The little dirty white kitten started purring as she napped, and Safa’s heart melted. He began thinking about adopting her—it seemed like she already loved him, and he was falling for her too!
“[I] wasn’t really bothered if she has fleas or anything like that ’cause I thought to myself, ‘If she does have fleas, I probably already have fleas, too, so whatever,’” Safa said.
Soon, the little kitten woke up. She immediately started meowing—it was her way of telling Safa that she wanted a post-nap snack.
“The first thing she does is step down [off] the sofa, look me in the eyes and start meowing nonstop for 20 seconds,” Safa wrote on Reddit. “She’s obviously hungry, so guess who’s sharing the chicken wings my mom made?”
Safa fed the kitten and then gave her a bath. Once the kitten was all cleaned up, he took her to a local vet. There, he learned the kitten was healthy, and she also didn’t have a microchip. It was clear she was a stray.
Once Safa learned the kitten was a stray, he officially decided to adopt her. He named her Angel.
Angel has been with Safa for a few weeks, and the pair are doing very well! Angel loves hanging out with Safa—she’s a huge fan of playing with toys, and she also enjoys simply relaxing with her favorite human.
“All I can say is that she is the most fun cat I have ever gotten to play with,” Safa said. “All she does is just roam around me all the day wanting pets or to play.”
Safa posted a photo of the moment he found Angel to Reddit, and it quickly went viral. Everyone loved hearing about how the little kitten chose her new owner.
Safa also shared some cute footage of Angel playing with his shoelaces on Reddit. It’s clear that both Safa and Angel are as happy as can be.
When Safa went to take a nap, he could have never guessed he would wake up to find a new best friend sleeping on his stomach! These two are going to have a great life together.
