It turns out that cats are rather popular ...It is estimated that currently, 95.6 million cats are living in households here in the United States.
And there's a reason they're so popular...

It's time to ignore the "cats are evil" stereotype...

Zora the cat is here to prove this very matter.

It's always risky introducing a baby into a family of pets...

This certainly wasn't the case for the Needham family.

Brody's relationship with the feline quickly blossomed...And by the time they knew it, the pair were best friends!
The two friends have never needed words to communicate, they simply just understand each other...

But recently, Brody and Zora have become more talkative...
via: Viral HogLindsey and her husband were watching TV one evening after they had put Brody to bed when they heard a lot of meowing coming from upstairs. Luckily, they had a baby monitor cam set up in Brody's room.
Zora had broken into Brody's room.
via: Viral HogLindsey and her husband observed on the baby monitor cam app that Zora was perched on the armchair next to Brody's crib, and was curiously looking to the infant for attention.
It appears the pair were having their own little conversation...
via: Viral Hog“We open the baby monitor app on our phone and, sure enough, we see Zora sitting on the chair meowing next to the crib and Brody is standing up meowing right back at her, looking like they were having an actual conversation," Lindsey said in disbelief.
Zora and Brody are transfixed by each other.
