When Nancy Cowen moved from her home into an assisted living facility, she decided to leave her beloved cat Cleo behind. Though Cleo was in the capable care of Nancy's neighbors, she wasn't fond of the decision and set out to correct it herself. The gorgeous feline was rescued by Nancy 8 years ago, and the two clearly formed a close bond. This level of loyalty gives dogs everywhere a run for their money as man's best friend.
It took a couple of weeks for Nancy and Cleo to finally reunite, but they haven't separated since.
Soon after moving, workers at the care home noticed what they assumed was a stray cat taking residence on a bench outside.
Facility staffers Lauren Costello and Kelly Lovelock, seen here with Nancy, were more than happy to accommodate the pair.
