When Lindsey Needham first brought her baby Brody home, she could already see that he and her cat Zora would get along well.
“[Zora] first encountered Brody while I was holding him in my arms after we returned home from the hospital,” Needham said to The Dodo. “She leapt up on the chair and started smelling Brody’s head.” She started purring right away.
The two friends have never needed words to communicate — they just understand each other somehow. “She has always been so patient with him and never showed aggression toward him,” Needham said. “It’s almost like she understood that Brody was a baby, learning the world around him.”
But recently, Brody and Zora have become more talkative. They still don’t need words to talk to each other, since they have a language all their own. “Zora has always been a talkative cat and usually meows at me when she enters a room or jumps on my lap so I do it right back to her,” Needham said.
“So now whenever [Zora] walks in the room Brody starts meowing immediately and Zora happily responds with a ‘hello.’”
When Needham overheard Brody and Zora having a private conversation after lights out last month, it provided her with even more evidence of their unique relationship.
After putting Brody to sleep for the evening, Needham and her husband were watching TV when they heard meowing coming from upstairs. Zora had somehow gained access to Brody’s room, but that wasn’t all.
Needham said, “We open the baby monitor app on our phone and sure enough, we see Zora sitting on the chair near to the crib meowing and Brody is standing up meowing straight back at her, appearing like they were actually having a conversation.” “My husband and I were unable to help but watch and laugh heartily.”
