When Cashew was found, she didn't know what it was like to be loved. As soon as she was given the first hug, she couldn't stop hugging back.

This is Cashew. She was abandoned at Petsmart at 2 1/2 weeks of age.

"(She) was COVERED in fleas, her fur matted with filth, and had an issue with her right eye," reddit user flashypurplepatches wrote.

"The night I took her home, she wouldn't stop crying unless I held her against my chest. I ended up holding her all night, which is probably why she cuddles this way now."

"At 10pm Saturday night, Cashew decided walking was the best thing ever. He was so weak on Friday he could barely lift his little body.

"On Sunday, he was grooming himself, studying everything, moving like a champ, and purring like mad."

They gave Cashew a teddy bear and she started hugging it.

Now hugs and snuggles are how Cashew shows her love... "Cashew won't sit on my lap. It's the chest or nothing."

"First she must suck earlobes, touch noses, rub faces, grab neck with both paws, and lick nose (my nose). Purr loudly. Repeat."

When she is ready for a nap, she burrows her head into her human's neck for some serious snuggles.

She then proceeds to curl up into a ball and nap in her human's arms in bliss.
