Cat soothes crying baby to sleep

Nadine Bells

A dog may be man’s best friend, but a cat might be baby’s best babysitter.

A Canadian baby named Connar was not a happy baby, nor did his teary protests hint that a feline friend would be welcome.

Then black cat Stewie arrived at Connar’s side. Stewie’s patient stroking calmed the infant who fell asleep at the paws of the family pet.
Stewie stayed at the baby’s side, ensuring Connar was fast asleep. A kiss on the forehead and a knowing glance to the camera — the viral hit was filmed by Connar’s father, Aaron Grant — hinted that the cat knew exactly what he was doing.
