Kian was four years old when Simba the cat appeared in his home. Since that day Simba the cat has become the boy's guardian angel and helped the child cope with his numerous health issues including autism, secondary immunodeficiency syndrome, and degenerative bones and soft tissues.

During seizures, Simba is always by the boy's side. He warns his parents with a loud meow, and runs to comfort the boy. Every night they sleep together, and don't part for a moment.

On October 9, Simba's life took an unexpected turn. When Kian's mother opened the door, he suddenly ran out on the road and was hit by a car. The cat was immediately taken to the vet. All the way to the hospital Simba was purring and clinging to his owner Kian as if seeking comfort from the boy.

At the hospital the family was told that the case was hopeless, and it would be better for the boy to get another cat. These words made Kian scream at the vets who didn't expect such a reaction from the boy. So they agreed to perform the surgery.

"Simba was purring and giving us the love look deep into our eyes. When they said he had no internal injuries, we knew we had to try for him," Kian's mom recalls.
