There’s an age old adage that dogs and cats are archenemies. But many times, that’s not the case! They can actually live in harmony, side by side.Crosby is testament to that. Crosby grew up with his best friend who just so happened to be a cat. He also had another best friend who was a dog. And so when he lost both of them within six months of each other, he was understandably depressed. He had never felt so alone in all his life.
He was still a good boy, but it was obvious that he felt as though something was missing. But it wasn’t until this fateful day that his owner realized how lonely he really was. He was acting quite unusual. The owner said that “instead of our normal routine of Crosby howling with excitement to see me, he led me straight to the bathtub.”
While you may not think that the bathtub is a normal place to lead your owner, Crosby had a plan. Inside the tub was a tiny little kitten!
The homeowner was completely surprised by the little kitten. They said “this kitty was meowing up a storm. 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. Seems to me that Crosby must have brought her inside. She has an uncanny resemblance to the kitty friend he lost 6 months ago.”
They were told that if they were to bring the kitten to the shelter she would probably be put down. The local shelter had over 300 kittens and cats already, and no room to take on any more. The vet said that they could either keep the kitten or put it outside and hope it would go home, but Crosby had already made the choice for them both.
The two have become new best friends. Crosby was thrilled to have company in the house again and it is so adorable to see the two of them bonding!
They have become the best of friends and are never apart. Congrats to this family on the restored joy!
