Raven was in no hurry to pick out a new best friend at the shelter.

After all, this was a lifetime commitment. Raven was still a puppy. And last August, she was choosing a kitten at the animal shelter in Lubbock, Texas — a kitten she could grow old with.

Last May, Christina and her partner brought home Raven, an adorable Tamaskan puppy. One month later, the couple decided to take Raven to their local shelter in Lubbock, Texas to find a kitten she could grow old with.

“I had always wanted a dog and a cat to grow up together. It’s been like a life goal,” Christina told The Dodo. The couple brought over four shelter kittens for Raven to meet and one kitten,Woodhouse, took to Raven immediately.

One year later and the two have become inseparable. They eat, play and sleep together and their parents have been sharing their daily lives on Instagram where Raven and Woodhouse have nearly 30,000 followers!

Below you will find some adorable highlights from their last year of friendship. Be sure to follow@raven_and_woodhouse on Instagram for many more precious moments between these lifelong friends.

And at the end of the day, they chill together. Because some things never change.
