A few weeks back, however, an unfortunate accident put a pause on the good thing Keane and Mitcho had going.
Keane suffered a fall, breaking his hip in the process. He ended up needing an extended stay at the hospital to undergo a hip replacement. Meanwhile, Mitcho pined away at home, missing his best friend dearly.
"They were separated for four weeks," Aoife, Keane's daughter, told The Dodo. "Mitcho always follows him around the house and sits by him in the garden, so he must have been devastated."
That absence only seemed to deepen the cat's love for Keane. Ever since he was released from the hospital to recover at home, Mitcho has insisted on staying close.
