On his heels was the most adorable orange and white tabby kitten, that would follow him up the paths to to people's doors like a puppy. Every so often he would stop and look down at it and say something and the kitten would mew back. Once he finished the street I live on he paused and knelt down and played with the kitten for a while, petting it and smiling.
Then the pair of them set off to continue his round.
I have no idea if the kitten was his and just wanted to follow him as he worked, or whether it just latched on while he was out delivering mail. It was adorable to watch anyway.
