Autistic child bursts into tears as parents reveal a long-lost friend – try not to get emotional watching

Ready your box of Kleenex. This video of a boy being reunited with his pet cat is sure to make you shed a tear or two.
The video, posted by the boy's sibling Billie-Louise Jaeger (also known by the YouTube name Flossie Sweeto), shows her brother Thomas, who suffers from autism, sitting on a couch unaware of the surprise that awaits him as his mother returns home with the family pet.

The family's beloved cat Dave had gone missing three months earlier, and through a stroke of luck and a good Samaritan, the cat was found and turned in to the family's veterinarian's office.
In an interview with LoveMeow, Billie-Louise shared just how close Thomas' relationship is with Dave. “[H]e knows Dave loves him unconditionally. He hasn't been the same since Dave went missing.”
Having gone to pick up the cat, the boy's mother returns to surprise Thomas with the good news. The little boy's reaction is truly priceless, as he is overcome with joy and quickly breaks down sobbing as he rushes to hold his beloved friend once again. The little black cat is seemingly just as thrilled to be once again in the arms of his best friend.
