Man spent more than a year gaining the trust of a homeless cat who visited his house in search of food, now they are the best of friends
For a little over a year, a man named Lex, who initially didn’t consider himself a cat lover, tried to befriend a homeless cat to gain his trust. He was undoubtedly very patient and gradually approached the elusive cat whom he called “Cinnabon.”
When he saw him hanging around his house, he noticed that the little feline was quite thin and although at first, he didn’t pay much attention to it, then he decided to leave him some tuna in his patio.

Despite Lex’s gesture, the cat did not approach him, he seemed fearful of humans, yet Cinnabon used to return in search of food, so Lex to make sure that the feline had something to eat, he kept leaving water and food in your yard.
Lex told The Dodo:
He just ate from his little bowl of food and water outside my house. And if he noticed me on the other side of the glass, he would run away.
Little by little Lex became more interested in the homeless cat, and decided to build a small house for him in his yard to serve as a refuge on cold nights, and it was a very pleasant surprise to discover that Cinnabon entered the small house full of blankets to rest.
I remember looking through the glass and seeing it at his house. He was looking at me. He just lowered his head and began to sleep. When he slept in the house, I thought it was a crucial moment. How to be part of the family.
Despite these advances between the two, Cinnabon wasn’t ready to get close to Lex all the way, it would still take a little longer for the homeless cat to trust him.
One of so many days, Lex discovered that outside in the snow through the glass door was the cat meowing, the man thought that Cinnabon still a little nervous wanted to enter the house, he tried to attract him with treats, and once inside the house the cat finally allowed Lex to come over and pet it.
Cinnabon and Lex are family now and the feline enjoys staying at home next to him, although the man often leaves his patio door open for the cat to enjoy going out and coming back whenever he wants.
Lex says it’s incredibly rewarding when he sees him return after spending time away from home. If you want to know more about this pair of friends you can see the adorable photos of him on his Instagram page.
