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.

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.

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.

But he still preferred Opie over anyone else.
