Smotherly love! A reassuring snuggle for the kitten having a nightmare becomes an international YouTube hit

By Mike O'brien

Deep sleep: The kitten starts to move its paws as its imagination takes over

Awww factor 10! People usually say they're either a dog person or a cat person, but this display of motherly love should have universal appeal.

A fluffy young kitten is lying, snuggled as close to her mother as possible, with the parent's front left leg draped over the young 'un's stomach.

The orange and cream striped kitten seems to be deep in sleep with its little mouth wide open.

Scroll down for video

Suddenly the kitten's left paw jerks quickly.

Then the right, then the left, then both.

Clearly having something of a nightmare, the kitten lifts both front legs up in the air.

Kitty nightmare: The arms start flailing and mother is waking

We'll have none of that: Without opening her eyes, the cat pulls the kitten close

Safe enough for you: The kitten is virtually smothered by its mother

Fighting off a vicious dog, perhaps, or some other big nasty animal.

At that point, mother decides she's had enough.

She lifts her left leg, puts her right leg under the kitten's body and reassuringly pulls her baby as close to her as possible.

Comfy now: The kitten moves her head to a better position

The kitten obviously enjoys her new safer position, eventually moving its head to face her mother's.

The video has had more than 1.3 million views since it was posted on Thursday.

So cute! It's enough turn even the bitterest old man into an emotional ball of fluff!
