So, with Raven in tow, Christina and Vincent headed back to the very shelter where they’d adopted their new beloved pup. “I had always wanted a dog and a cat to grow up together. It’s been like a life goal,” Christina said in an interview.
After introducing her to a few kittens, the shelter workers brought out one last little guy. Immediately, the connection was apparent. By end of day, papers were signed, and the family had welcomed Woodhouse the kitten into their house!

“I wanted them to be able to get along well. [I wanted] her to actually meet the cat and have the cat get along with the dog as well,” Christina said.
Christina couldn’t believe how quickly her new furry children were getting along. “At one point Raven grabbed one of her peanut butter rawhides and held it for Woodhouse to lick,” Christina said proudly. “It was an instant bond!”
Furthermore, it was as if Raven and Woodhouse were incapable of growing tired of one another. They snuggled in the morning, hung out at the park during the day, and cuddled before bedtime. Clearly, Christina and Vincent had made a wonderful decision in adopting these two!
Even though Raven was the bigger, more dominant sibling, she didn’t mind letting little Woodhouse boss her around when it came to playtime. The pair seemingly underwent a total role reversal, wherein Woodhouse became the “alpha dog,” so to speak!
No matter how you look at it, one thing was clear: Woodhouse and Raven made for a great pair. Despite their obvious differences, they got along swimmingly, and it seemed like Christina and Vincent loved that about them the most!
Woodhouse and Raven were totally inseparable—and it was the cutest thing ever. See the way they hang out like it’s meant to be? That’s exactly what Vincent and Christina were obviously hoping for when they decided to start a family in the first place…
Clearly meant to be siblings, Raven and Woodhouse are the perfect pair. There’s no rivalry here; they’re just best friends!
