THE HEARTWARMING FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN A GIRL AND HER CAT

You don’t have to be a cat fiend to appreciate these photographs.

Captured by Russia-based photographer Andy Prokh, they tell the story of his then 4 year-old daughter Katherine and her friendship with the family’s cat, LiLu Blue Royal Lada (what a mouthful). It’s a relationship built on something truly special.

“They’ve lived their whole lives together,” Prokh told My Modern Met. “I like to take photos of them because I love them both and I’ve always believed a photographer must love what he shoots.”

Named by Katherine herself, LiLu (a British Shorthair) could possibly be the world’s easiest animal to work with, posing patiently while playing chess, sharing milk and solving maths problems with Katherine.

We can’t decide which shot is our favourite – every one warmed our hearts (and made us dance a little in our chairs).
