Imgur user squishiepeaches owns a dog named Crosby. There were previously two other animals, a dog and a cat, but they both passed away. At first, Crosby’s owner thought that we was fine with being the only animal in the house.
“This is Crosby. He is the best good boy,” squishiepeachies said 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.”
Crosby actually had a secret mission to find a new best friend. What he did caught his owner completely off guard.
When squishiepeaches returned home, Crosby was acting strangely. “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. When he followed Crosby into the bathroom, this is what he saw:
There was a little kitten in the tub.
This kitty was meowing up a storm,” he explained. “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.”
“She has an uncanny resemblance to the kitty friend he lost 6 months ago,” squishiepeachies says. “I talked to the neighbors surrounding my house and she’s been seen before, but no one knows who owns her.”
Squishiepeaches decided to take the cat to the vet, to see if it was micro-chipped. He needed to know if this cat belonged to anyone before he decided what to do next.
The kitten was not micro-chipped, so the question was, should he keep it or not?
“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.”
Since Crosby evidently like this kitten, and didn’t want to be an only child anymore, he decided to keep the kitten. They named the kitten Raina Lil Ray-Ray.
