Cats have a bit of reputation among people. They are often portrayed as these standoffish and cold creatures who wouldn’t lift a paw even if they saw their owner in trouble.
Of course, many cat owners would likely dispute that claim. In contrast to how they are often depicted, many cats actually show plenty of affection towards their owners.
Some cats may even go a wee bit overboard in terms of how much they watch over their human caretakers. At least, that’s the experience that one cat owner named Alyssa Patty has.
Instead of turning a blind eye to Alyssa, her cat Delilah springs into action right away to offer her company.
How Delilah Comes to the Rescue
This video shows several instances of Alyssa collapsing to the ground while pretending to cry. Not long after Alyssa hits the ground, Delilah can be seen walking into the shot to provide comfort to her weeping owner.
It seemingly doesn’t matter how far Delilah is from Alyssa as she will come rushing in as soon as she hears those cries ringing through the air. Upon reaching Alyssa, Delilah then climbs on her back and offers her comfort that way.
While Alyssa’s sorrow in the video may not be genuine, it’s clear that the love Delilah has for her is.
Still, some folks out there may be surprised to see this reaction from Delilah. Owing again to our pre-conceived notions, we don’t really tend to think of cats as the most affectionate or caring pets.
It’s important to point out here that animals have different personalities and so their reactions may also vary. That said, there are studies indicating that cats actually know a lot about how we feel and that they change their behavior based on what they are seeing from you.
Cats Are More Caring Than We Think
A while back, researchers at Oakland University decided to take a look at how pet cats reacted to their owners. According to this article from the BBC, the researchers specifically looked at how the cats reacted to their owner’s facial expression.
The researchers found that the pet cats exhibited more positive actions whenever their owner was smiling as opposed to frowning. Cats who saw their owners smiling were more likely to purr, rub up next to their owner, or sit in their owner’s lap.
The cats were also more willing to get closer to their owner if the person in question was smiling as instead of frowning.
Meanwhile, when the same cats were positioned next to strangers, there was no discernible difference in the amount of positive actions they performed.
But what about in Alyssa’s case? Delilah couldn’t necessarily tell if she was smiling or frowning because her head was facing the ground whenever she pretended to cry.
The pretend crying could be something that Delilah perceived as a sign of distress which may have caused her to stay away, but she still approached Alyssa. That could be because Delilah was exhibiting a different kind of positive behavior.
A Cat Kneading Means He/She Cares
If you look closely at the video, you will see that upon jumping on to Alyssa’s back, Delilah starts to perform that familiar kneading action that cats are so fond of.
The thing about that kneading action is that it can mean a lot of things. According to Purina, a cat may knead because it’s a habit they developed as kittens or because they want to make their sleeping spot more comfortable. Cats may also knead when they are stretching.
Purina adds that cats may knead when they are feeling happy or just really comfortable.
In Alyssa’s case, Delilah may be kneading because she cares about her owner. Cats may knead as a way to mark their territory. Perhaps because Delilah doesn’t know what has happened to Alyssa, she decided to make it clear to other cats that no one should approach her owner.
While the exact reason why Delilah comes to Alyssa’s aid every time remains difficult to pin down, it sure does seem that the two of them have a loving relationship.

For Mersey Marine player Bayleigh Passant, he wanted to do something different for his twentieth birthday. So, the famous soccer player and goalkeeper decided to do something for the fans. The day was already special with Passants work contributing to his team winning and becoming a seat in the FA Cup third round of competitions. As soon as the game was over, off Passant went to the local market for a surprise.
Suddenly, much to the amazement of the fans and club aficionados, Passant walks up to the crowd with a bag full of merriment and drinks to celebrate both the game win as well as his own birthday. The fans were flabbergasted. This was all after quite a bit of impressive work on the field, where the goalkeeper made sure none of the opponents even had a chance to make a mark by refusing to give anyone a point at all. The game ended 1-0 in favor of Mersey, and Passant was a player of day in that performance.
How did the rest of the world find out about this little after-game soiree? Electronically, of course. Much of that recognition was due to one fan, Stuart Wilks-Heeg, being smart enough to post photos of the celebration and after-game medley on Twitter. He summed up the unexpected extra game bonus as one of his top moments of 2020, seeing his favorite team win in the FA Cup as well has having a drink with the goalkeeper to boot.
Even better, Passant made no effort to hide himself from fans, passerbys and photogs. He was out on the street right after the game, walked right into the local market still wearing his game kit, and handed out beers at the field gate while still in full game uniform. As Stuart noted, many felt like they just went back in time, celebrating with their hero players in person and hanging out with legends in the real flesh.
All in all, more than three cases of lager were handed out to the available fans, and Passant was right in the middle of it. For Marine, Passant’s team, the entire night was an unbelievable turn of events. Few expected a non-league team to make a showing much less hammer through a full position into the FA Cup. Everybody from the players to management to admin were going nuts with the turn of events in their favor. What will really put things over the top is if Passant’s ends up being faced with another team from Mersey as their competition in the next round. An all-Mersey game will literally bring out the stoppers and make the entire town go bonkers rooting for one side or the other.
