This little kitty managed to steal the heart of a man who claims he never liked cats

There are some pet owners out there who are decidedly in one pet camp or another, pro-dog or pro-cat, but not both. Arnaldi was one of those individuals, a man who liked dogs but had sworn off cats altogether. That is until he met a small kitten who quickly stole his heart.
Arnaldi was taken by surprise when his wife brought home a little, purring tabby cat she had adopted from a local shelter. She named the cat after Aegon the Conqueror, a Targaryen king from HBO's Game of Thrones. It was a pretty heavy name for such a small, cute little guy, but he bore it with a purr and a smile. Little Aegon proved he was worthy of the name by immediately beginning a campaign to conquer Arnaldi's heart.

This 12-week-old phenom knew that he would have to push the cuteness meter to win over Arnaldi, a man with an anti-cat perspective. But Aegon worked quickly to melt that stony heart. Right away, he crawled up into Arnaldi's lap and begged for some snuggles.

Then, as if to tell Arnaldi how much he was loved, the kitten began to grab Arnaldi's hand for more attention and proceeded to lick the man's hand repeatedly. It sounds like a very good match to us!

Arnaldi was happy to share some advice about Aegon. "When he looks in your eyes… he starts getting real close," Arnaldi said. Seriously, who could resist such beautiful eyes? On his Imgur page, Arnaldi notes, "It's been one day, and I already like this little guy."
