Cats are often mistaken as “aloof” or “self-serving beings”, but this adorable video captures their true essence as one of the sweetest and smartest pets on earth! In this clip, we see a cat being super protective toward his 1-year-old human brother who gets a bit too close to the balcony ledge. The cat’s instinctive response is simply heartwarming!

When the cat sees his baby brother nonchalantly loitering by the railing, he dashes to keep an eye on him. As explained by the family, the balcony has a large and reliable security mesh and the child is not really in any danger. But the cat is still not comfortable with the fragile kid curiously poking around the railings.

The cat panics and stares in horror at his relatively relaxed adult humans who do nothing about the “alarming” situation. He finally takes matter into his own paws and proceeds to remove the baby’s hands off the railing. The toddler initially acts a bit stubborn, but the cat sternly pushes away his palms glued to the railing!

Once the baby is “safe”, the anxious cat commands his naive brother to keep a distance from the railing AT ALL TIMES! It’s hilarious to see that the kid actually listens to the cat and moves away from the balcony like an obedient little brother!
