When Forsberg the golden retriever’s best friend died, he was completely devastated.  So his mom did what she thought would cheer him up again – she brought him home a new kitty friend!




The 15-year-old had died of thyroid cancer, leaving 10-year-old Forsberg behind.  Mom knew how much he loved his kitty, so she brought home a kitten named Maxwell to help heal his heart.




“Forsberg really missed having a cat.  Problem solved,” said mom Jen Philion.




It worked.  Though Maxwell will never be the same as his other treasured friend, Forsberg loves his new companion dearly.
