Gerard Keane and his cat, Mitcho, have been inseparable for the past sixteen years, doing almost everything together from sleeping to eating. Unfortunately Gerard recently had a hip replacement, which meant he was in the hospital for four weeks. When he returned, he and Mitcho returned to their normal routine.

To gain strength, Gerard started walking around the block on crutches, so Mitcho decided to accompany him, walking extra slow to stay with his friend. With such a strong bond between Gerard and Mitcho, it’s obvious that the two enjoy each other’s company and will likely keep each other company for as long as they can.
