When a Japanese family brought home a ginger kitten last year, they knew caring for the days-old cat was going to be a lot of work. So they enlisted Ultraman to help out.
Koma the kitten’s family began documenting his adventures with Ultraman on Instagram from the very start, and it seems the Japanese superhero has helped his little buddy grow up big and strong.
All throughout his life, Koma’s superhero buddy has been by his side, starting when he first came to live with his family.
Koma was rescued after he was found without his mom and siblings at the tender age of 3 days old, according to Love Meow.
Ultraman kept Koma company.
Back then they were pretty much the same size!
Thanks to the love and care he received from his family — and Ultraman! — Koma began to grow.
And pretty soon he grew bigger than his superhero bestie.
They did everything together.
They napped together.
Gossiped about other superheros together.
And told each other all their secrets.
Sometimes they would fight.
But they always made up after talking it through.
And Ultraman has always been there when Koma needed him most.
They recently celebrated Koma’s first birthday.
Shortly afterward, Koma got a new friend, Hachi.
Ultraman watches over them both.
And while Koma and Hachi are close…
Ultraman will always have a special place in Koma’s heart.
