Excited Cat Yells When His Soldier Father Finally Returns Home

Poke My Heart Youtube

Videos of overly-excited dogs welcoming home soldiers from deployment have become a viral trend the internet just can’t seem to get enough of – and it’s true, they’re a precious part of life that we all can enjoy! However, as heart-melting as they may be – one adorable fluffy cat may just be giving them a run for their money.


Finn, or “Finners” as his family dotingly calls him, acts much more like a dog than cats often do, and especially in this sense! He obviously hears his dad, who’s a soldier, coming up the stairs to the apartment and his excitement can be heard loud and clear!


The video begins with a furry feline pacing in front of a door, repeatedly meowing and crying as it impatiently waits for his owner’s arrival. As he wanders over to the woman recording the exciting event, the cat nuzzles up to the camera before being asked, “Do you hear him?” Scurrying over to the door, the cat remained still in preparation for the exciting moment.


As the door barges open, the cat stares at the soldier waiting for him to come all the way in the house. Hesitant at first, the cat sniffs the soldier’s bag sizing up his dad and preparing for a leap of faith into his dad’s open arms!


With a wind-up and a very springy jump, Finners jumped so high up he landed on his dad’s shoulders! The soldier laughed loudly at the massive leap and grabbed him so he wouldn’t fall. Patting him and snuggling him in his cradled arms, the two had a reunion that’s too cute to miss!


Purring loudly to express his happiness to have his owner finally home, the loving kitten was clearly much happier now that his dad had come back home and the family was complete.

The couple also has another cat, but that one seemed less excited.
