Nicole, 30, from Upper West Side, New York, USA, wanted a cat that wouldn’t affect her allergies. That’s why she adopted a one-year-old Ukrainian Levkoy. After taking pictures of the cat, Mr. Dobbs, she learned that the cat enjoyed playing with the strap on her camera.

Now Nicole takes and posts pictures of Mr. Dobbs dressed up like a house elf from the Harry Potter books. Nicole credits Mr. Dobbs with helping her become more outgoing. She hopes to train Mr. Dobbs as a therapy animal so children can practice reading to Mr. Dobbs in the library, which means a cat can help increase literacy and make the world a better place.
