Important: This woman created a sling to carry around her elderly cat who has arthritis

The most precious thing you'll see today, TBH.

We never want to be away from our pets so we love the lengths one cat owner has gone to to ensure her furry pal always gets cuddles.

Ricky the blue point Siamese is 17 and is suffering with arthritis.

Like a lot of patients, he tends to feel a little needy and so his family wanted to make sure they could be with him at all times.

Sharing his story, writer Felicity Morse said that her mum carries Ricky around the house while she's doing jobs .

"He’s in a lot of pain and the only thing that helps is stroking, so he follows my mum around the house miaowing till she strokes him so she thought this would help," she further explained.

Sadly, Ricky is a little under the weather so we've our fingers crossed that he's on the mend and back in his sling very soon.

“He’s currently in hospital on a drip because he’s not very well. But hopefully he’ll be better soon. He’s very laid back and enjoys company so you can carry him around anywhere."

Felicity's story prompted others online to share stories of how they've cared for their elderly pets.

"It’s really nice hearing about how much people love their animals," Felicity responded.

"I think the power of touch and warmth with another living creature moves us all."
