The cat Sophie was rеscuеd from a hoarding scenario when she was around 3 years old, when she and a large number of other animals were all packed in cages on top of one another.
The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) took her in, and her new family quickly adơрted her.
Sophie is an incredibly sweet and loving cat, and just wants to be around her parents as much as she possibly can. For the first few nights after she was adơрted, whenever her parents would head off to bed, she would head up to the top of their dresser and sleep there the entire night. It’s as if she wanted to be high enough to watch her parents, and to make sure she knew exactly when it was time to get up again.
“I tried to see if she would sleep in our bed but she insisted on always sleeping on the dresser,” Christiana Viscusi, Sophie’s mom, told The Dodo. “So after a few nights I cleared off the dresser and put her bed there. She’s been going up to her bed when we go to bed ever since.”
A small facsimile of a human bed serves as Sophie’s bed, and she even has a set of changing sheets and blankets. Every night, her mother tucks her snugly into bed, where she spends the whole night.
She spends the entire night nestled in there, according to Viscusi. She only leaves her bed once, at approximately 3 a.m., to have a food before returning there till my alarm goes off in the morning.
Sophie’s mom made her an Instagram account so the rest of the world can enjoy her adorable sleeping habits, too. People often question if Sophie’s mom is making her pose in the bed to take pictures …
… but Sophie really does sleep in her bed every single night, because she just wants to be close to her parents. When they get all tucked into bed and sleep through the night, that’s exactly what she wants to be doing, too.
Although Sophie enjoys spending time indoors, she also adores being outside.
Sophie will immediately come rushing and sit down to get her harness put on if I simply mention, “Sophie want to go outside?,” according to Viscusi. She could stand outside watching the yard for hours. She is waiting at the door and circling me to go outdoors when I get home from work. We have a schedule where we spend at least one hour outside after I get home since I know she’s been waiting impatiently all day.
A year after Sophie was adơрted, Viscusi saw one of the neighbor’s cats began to follow them when she first started taking Sophie outside. Scottie would follow them everywhere they went, and as the weeks passed, he began to get closer and closer until, at last, he was always there by Sophie’s side whenever she walked outside.
