Manuel recently celebrated his 100th birthday and he is just like a child again.
Manuel lives in Spain with his granddaughter Maria and their family.
They all thought it would be great to plan a surprise for their beloved grandpa on his birthday.
So they adopted a kitten who needed a home and named her Bloom. Manuel had no idea what they were up to.
“My grandfather did not know anything about this,” Maria told The Dodo.
“When he saw her enter my house for the first time, his eyes lit up with emotion. He has always been a great lover of animals.”
All agreed it was a match made in heaven. The two of them spend all day playing, and they even take their daily naps together.
“My grandfather is 100 years old, and the kitten has given him another 100 years of life,” said Maria.
“He is always attentive to Bloom. They spend all day playing, and even take naps together.”
At the ripe old age of 100, Manuel has found his soulmate in Bloom.
Maria says it’s been a such a beautiful gift to see her grandfather so happy with his new friend and that from the moment they first saw each other they’ve had a special connection.
The pair are now inseparable and the union has brought a lot of joy into the family.
But as it turns out, this lovely friendship brought joy to the masses after Maria posted a video of them online and it went viral!

"It has been incredible, all the love and affection that the video has received," she said. "I did not expect it to go so far."
Maria has tried telling her grandfather that he and Bloom are now internet famous, but he didn't give it a second thought.
Why should he? Manuel and kitten Bloom have more important things to do!
