If It Weren’t For This Dog, This Adorable Two-Day-Old Kitten May Not Have Lived
Imgur user¬†LiaLiaBoBiaBananaFannaFoFiaMeMiMoMiaLIA¬†recently adopted a kitten in an unconventional way.
Her puppy Opie found the little guy in a field behind their apartment. The two-day-old kitten was stuck under a log and covered in maggots, and Opie wouldn’t leave without him.
A nice bath and a visit to an emergency vet did wonders for the kitten, named Roscoe.
His rescuer (we’ll assume her name is Lia) made a cozy nesting box for him to sleep in.
Here are Lia and Roscoe together.
Roscoe started opening his eyes when he was around 10 days old.
Because he was so tiny, he was still eating replacement milk from a syringe.
Roscoe’s showing off his tummy after a feeding.
Then he’d go back to his nesting box to rest with a pink bunny toy.
Both his eyes were open by the time he was two weeks old.
Here he is around 2.5 weeks old, relaxing after a meal.
At this point his eyes had been open a week, but it’s the first time he seemed to recognize Lia.
At three weeks old, Roscoe was able to start drinking from a tiny bottle.
He started showing off his playful side.
By four weeks old, he had mastered the art of escaping from his playpen.
Here’s Roscoe cuddling up to his savior, Opie.
Like any good cat, he stopped his mom from studying.
Roscoe made some canine friends.
But he still preferred Opie over anyone else.
Here are the two brothers together, both looking happy and healthy.
And here’s Roscoe at 16 weeks old.
