It’s never too late to meet new pals. Manuel, who recently turned 100 years old, is the finest example. His loving family surprised him with a cat called Bloom, and the two have become inseparable.
Manuel lives with his granddaughter Maria Suarez and her family, who have prepared a surprise for their grandfather. Of course, he had no idea what was going on. Maria adopted a homeless cat and brought it to her grandfather to keep him company.
“This was completely unknown to my grandfather,” Maria adds. “His eyes glowed with emotion the first time he saw her enter my home. He has always had a strong affinity towards animals.”
Maria was overjoyed to see her grandfather in such good spirits that she began recording Manuel and Bloom’s time together:
This connection is quite popular on the internet, and the video immediately went viral.
“All of the love and affection that the video has gotten has been wonderful,” Maria added. “I didn’t think it would go so far.”
Maria tried to tell her grandfather that he and his furry companion had become renowned, but he didn’t seem to mind. He and Bloom, after all, have more important things to accomplish.
