An Imgur user who goes by the name squishiepeachies is the proud owner of an adorable Golden Retriever named Crosby. He also had another dog and a cat, but sadly both passed away within a few months of each other.

While Crosby was clearly sad about his loss, squishiepeachies thought that Crosby was okay being an only dog.

However, squishiepeachies was mistaken.

“This is Crosby. He is the best good boy,” squishiepeachies wrote on Imgur. “About 6-months-ago, he lost his kitty friend, and just over a month ago he lost his best doggo friend that he’s had as a companion since he was 8-weeks-old. Crosby has been pretty okay about being an only doggo, or so I thought.”

Turns out Crosby was sick of living without a BFF and decided to go out and find a new furry friend for himself.

Squishiepeachies discovered Crosby’s new chosen companion after arriving home one day.

“On Thursday I came home, and instead of our normal routine of Crosby howling with excitement to see me, he led me straight to the bathtub,” squishiepeachies explains.

It was there that squishiepeachies found a tiny meowing kitten that he had never seen before.

“This kitty was meowing up a storm,” squishiepeachies explained.

It appeared as if Crosby fetched the cat and brought the kitten into his home.

“I’ve never seen this kitten before, and although I do have a doggy door, it’s way too high off the ground for this little baby to have snuck in,” squishiepeachies wrote. “Seems to me that Crosby must have brought her inside.”

What’s even stranger about the whole situation was that the kitten looked a little familiar.

“She has an uncanny resemblance to the kitty friend he lost 6 months ago,” squishiepeachies explains. “I talked to the neighbors surrounding my house and she’s been seen before, but no one knows who owns her.”

Squishiepeachies then took the kitten to see if it was microchipped, which it was not. That left squishiepeachies with a decision to make.

“She was, however, spayed just a few days ago, and is thought to be about 4 months old,”Squishiepeachies said.

“The vet basically told me that if I took her to the shelter she’d be put down because there are already over 300 kittens at the county shelter alone that need homes. He said I could try putting her outside and hope she goes home, or I could keep her.”

Squishiepeachies decided that since Crosby went through all that trouble to find himself a new kitten, they might as well keep it. So, now Crosby is very happy to have his new kitty companion Raina Lil Ray-Ray, who was named by the Imgur user’s high school students.

Squishpeachies ended his story by saying:

“I guess Crosby didn’t like being an only doggo after all.”

We’re so glad Raina is in such a good home with a friend who clearly loves her so much.
