According to Perpetual_Tuesday, they adopted Willie after he was rescued from a puppy mill. He grew up with his best friend, Oscar, spending many years having fun and good times together. But unfortunately, Oscar died last September.

"Willie has been very upset for the past year about his friend's decline and passing, and became very depressed. The house was very sad," related Perpetual_Tuesday.

To bring back the lost joy into their home, their family decided to adopt another pet. They contacted a local rescue who informed them about Louie the kitten who was saved from a hoarding condition by people living in a trailer home with 50 cats.

"His bio described him as a spunky guy who loves snuggles and kisses," explained Perpetual_Tuesday. "That was very much correct. He is the most stereotypical loveable troublemaking cat."

The result? Fun and joyful noise returned to their home. Willie is so fond of Louie that he will howl in happiness while they play.

Their owner described the situation of the new best friends. "They play together, sleep together and eat together. Willie is so happy he's like a puppy again, and Louie has found a loving home where he has a big stinky loud friend."

Here are some of the joyous comments from Redditors:

For more than 20 years now, I’ve been devoting my heart, energy, and time to fulfilling my dream, which – many people may agree – is not among the easiest aspirations in life. Part of my happiness is having been able to lend a hand to many individuals, companies, and even governments as an investigative journalist, creative writer, TV director, and radio broadcaster.

At home, I spend my free time learning how to cook various cuisines. Tiramisu, chocolate mousse, and banoffee pie are my favorite desserts. Playing with our dogs, Mushu and Jerusalem, is also a special part of my day. And, of course, I read a lot – almost anything under the sun. But what really makes me feel alive is meeting people from various walks of life and writing about their stories, which echo with the tears and triumph of an unyielding spirit, humanity, and wisdom.
