the storybook friendship of Malcolm & Frankie
See, you've got to understand the special relationship - the brotherly bond - that's developed between Malcolm (aka - the good cat) and Frankie. The cynical among you might explain Malcolm's high threshold of tolerance for Frankie's, uh, affection as a self-serving attempt to garner attention for himself. You'd probably be at least partially right. But they really do get along, at least insofar as Malcolm puts up with a lot from Frankie.
And, I mean, it's not like Malcolm doesn't mess with Frankie on occasion...
So, then, with this understanding of the unique and special bond between Frankie and Malcolm, and taking into consideration the seemingly boundless supply of tolerance this cat has shown toward the boy, we are far less negligent parents than this video might indicate.
