Both seniors, they were always taking it easy and relaxing. Their favorite place to be was snuggling with each other on the couch.

Sadly, Ginger passed away from thyroid cancer when she was 15 years old. Forsberg was devastated to no long have his best friend by his side. He continuously searched throughout the house for Ginger every day, and didn’t understand where she went.

Forsberg’s human, Jen Philion, couldn’t stand seeing Forsberg so sad and in so much pain without his kitty best friend. So she decided to get him a new one! She brought home a new kitten named Maxwell, and the two hit it off right away!

Ginger will always have a special place in Forsberg’s heart, but little Max does a great job filling the void. Max cuddles right against Forsberg in the same spot Ginger once did.

It has now been a year since Max became a part of the family, and Forsberg and him are as close as ever! Friendship knows no species!
