It’s pretty common for cats to want to bring their owners’ gifts, and everyone who owns such a pet knows the struggle. Many times, they like to bring over something that they’ve hunted down, like a mouse or a bird. While they may be proud of themselves, most owners aren’t too thrilled at the gift. How would you feel like if every morning you would wake up to an unexpected present from your cat?

The man from our story knows exactly how it feels like and we’re so happy that he decided to share his amazing story with the entire world. His silly cat wanted to surprise her owner with gifts, however, the ones she was bringing weren’t making him too happy. When she figured out that she must find a new method of gifting, this sly cat decided to shower her owner with the cutest gift ever.

Since most humans don’t love the idea of being gifted a rodent, many cats feel confused when their gifts are rejected. The cats often work hard to hunt down this gift and love their human enough to share it. That was the case with this sly cat, Baloo.

Meet Baloo, a sly cat that absolutely loves to hunt. Her owner, Ben, however, doesn’t quite love it when she hunts down various live gifts for him. In fact, he finds it pretty repulsive. That’s when Baloo realized that he must do something different…

You see, in order to show her love, Baloo would often catch various bugs and rodents in the backyard to bring back to Ben. She would surprise him in the mornings with the gift and bring it straight to the bedroom. Ben was far from appreciative…

Baloo would often bring in small rodents and birds. She was such a great hunter that more often than not, the animal would still be alive when she would bring it into the bed. Ben knew this was going to be a problem for him. But one morning, things changed!

I’d wake up to her on my chest with something in her mouth which she would then drop on my face or chest, and then meow,” Ben told The Dodo. “I don’t know if she expected me to think it was breakfast or that it was simply a gift.” Baloo’s reaction is hilarious whenever she does that. And that’s not all…

Since most of the “gifts” were still alive when they were brought to Ben, he would have no choice but to catch them and release them back outside. Baloo began to notice that Ben wasn’t pleased with the gifts that she was bringing him and she wasn’t happy about it. That’s when the smart ball of fur came up with a brilliant idea!

She always looked so confused and sad, which made me feel pretty bad,” Ben said. However, Baloo started to think the situation through and began to ponder on the type of gift that Ben would love. Finally, she came to the perfect conclusion. It’s hilarious!

It took a couple of months of me rejecting her gifts for her to start bringing me leaves. They were always big, nice looking leaves,” Ben said. “It was such a relief from the live mice every morning that I would show my gratitude by taking the leaf and playing with it while she sat on my chest.” You won’t believe how cute Baloo is when she drops the leaf on his owner’s bed! Check it out in the following photos.

She’s not a lap cat by any means, but when I’m upset or nervous she will hop up onto me, push me back so I lay down and then she’ll just sit on my chest purring like mad and nuzzling my face with her nose. She’s a very loving cat.”
