Some mailmen deliver mail by driving to mailboxes while others walk through a neighborhood and deliver mail directly to people’s homes. Those mailmen usually have to worry about dogs but one mailman has gone viral for showing how he spends time on his route petting cats that meet him along the way.

Some of these cats rush to get petted while others escort the mailman along the route. By having a cat escort the mailman through a neighborhood, the cats can protect t the mailman from getting attacked by dogs. This shows that cats can be wonderful caring creatures.
