Dog Rescues A Kitten & Begs His Owner To Let Him Keep It

Meet Crosby the Dog. He's sweet and loyal and he loves other animals.

Until recently, Crosby had two BFFs — a cat and another dog. About six months ago, Crosby lost his kitty friend and then, about a month ago, he lost his dog pal (who he'd been with since he was 8 weeks old).

"Crosby has been pretty okay about being an only doggo, or so I thought," his owner, who goes by squishiepeachies on Imgur, wrote (link:).

A couple of weeks ago, Crosby made it clear that he was not interested in being an only doggo after all. One day, when his owner came home, Crosby led him to the bathroom, where an adorable (but unfamiliar) kitten waited in the tub.

"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. It seems to me that Crosby must have brought her inside," the owner explained. "She has an uncanny resemblance to the kitty friend he lost 6 months ago."

The guy did everything he could to find the kitten's owners — walking around the neighborhood asking about her and taking her to the vet to see if she was microchipped. She wasn't and the vet explained that if she was taken to the shelter, which was over capacity, she would probably be put down.

So the guy did the only thing he could do: He adopted the kitten, who his high school students named Raina (Lil' Ray Ray as a nickname).

Now, Crosby and Raina are best friends. They play together, nap together, and cuddle together.

Crosby and Raina forever.
