Get your tissues ready because you’re going to be crying happy tears after reading this sweet story! Two cats who live in the same neighborhood in the UK happened to find each other one day and ever since they have been best friends.

Every single day a tabby cat named Ralph (pictured) waits outside for his best friend, a calico cat named Nala.

“He comes to collect our cat (Nala) for playtime every day and waits outside like this,” user franwalker26 shared on Reddit. When the door is opened, Ralph walks right in say hello.

And if Ralph is late for his date? Nala anxiously looks for him.

If Ralph didn’t already have humans, Nala’s parents say they would adopt him. They love watching the two bonded cats play together. Ralph + Nala = 4ever.

Ralph and Nala’s beautiful friendship is being adored by thousands, with the original Reddit post now having over 96,000 upvotes from animal lovers over the world.

If you live with a cat, you may wonder if they get lonely. While cats are known for being solitary creatures, they do, in fact, enjoy companionship. Regardless of what most people think, cats are social animals who thrive in bonded pairs. So why not get your cat a buddy from the rescue shelter if you’re ready? Together, they can be lifelong best friends.

If you’re unable to adopt, animal shelters could always use more volunteers to help with a variety of tasks, so be sure check out our guide to volunteering!

And of course please, always adopt, don’t shop!
