Dwight K. Schrute Marsh found his forever home after a long journey from Mississippi to Maine. But, his new mom had no idea Dwight had a best friend back at his foster home in Mississippi. Fate stepped in though, and the cat BFFs were reunited after seven months apart.

Megan Marsh had considered the idea of adopting a cat for a few years. And when she met Dwight at the Animal Welfare Society, she knew the moment had come. She and Dwight knew they were meant for each other and Megan became a first-time cat mom!

“Dwight is the sweetest cat I’ve ever encountered,” Megan told The Dodo. “I had never had a cat prior to him and was worried that I’d get a cat that was aloof and just did their own thing — Dwight is NOT that cat!”

“Right from the very first day he loved belly rubs, kisses and cuddles. He follows me around my apartment, has to be with me at all times and sleeps with me every night.”

But Dwight had a friend back at the foster home he originally came from in Mississippi. Megan knew nothing about this best friend until she got a call one day.

Seven Months Apart, But Soon Together Forever

For a whole year, Dwight shared his Mississippi foster home with a cat named Conan. They were the best of friends, but when it was time for Dwight to go, Conan wasn’t ready for a forever home yet. And the pair were separated.

But fast forward seven months and Megan got a phone call. Dwight’s foster mom shared the tale of the best friends, relating Conan would soon be heading to the Animal Welfare Society in Maine where Dwight and Megan met. The foster mom asked if Megan might be willing to adopt Conan so the cat buds could be together again.

At first, Megan worried over the idea of taking in another cat. After all, being a cat mom was still a relatively fresh endeavor.

“After giving it some thought though it just made sense — they were best friends before, I would have been crazy not to reunite them!”

So, Conan had a forever home before he even left Mississippi and unbeknownst to either cat, they would soon be reunited.

Best Friends Become Brothers

Understandably, Conan was a scared kitty upon arriving at his new home in Maine. But, as soon as he saw Dwight, he grew calmer and eventually settled in.

“He and Dwight remembered each other and were friends once again — I actually got up in the middle of the night to find the two of them cuddling in Dwight’s little bed,” said Megan. “It was the cutest thing ever!”

“They are now inseparable. If one is around, the other one is usually right there too. It is clear this was the best decision!”

Though Dwight and Conan were apart for those seven months, the cat boys were destined to be together as best friends and brothers. Congratulations, Marsh Family!
