An abandoned two-day-old maggot ridden kitten almost died. But then a puppy heard his cry.

At only two days old, this kitten was found in a field stuck under a log and covered in maggots. Alone and defenseless, the kitten would have surely died had he not been found. Thanks to Opie the Pug, who heard the kitten crying for help and lead his human to the kitten, the kitten got a second chance at life.

Opie refused to leave the kitten, so Opie’s human had no choice but to rescue the kitten. Over the next few weeks, the kitten was nursed back to health and eventually grew up to be a happy, healthy cat named Roscoe.

This is Roscoe’s rescue story:

“Meet Roscoe”

1

“After a nice bath and a visit to the emergency vet, Roscoe seemed to be doing much better.”

2

 

 

“He stayed nice and warm in a nesting box that we created for him”

3

“Cuddles with his mom.”

4

“Around 10 days old, Roscoe began to open his eyes.”

5

“When Roscoe was still a little baby, he ate his replacement milk from a syringe.”

6

“He loved to be held and cuddled after feedings.”

7

“And then he would crazy back into his nesting box and fall asleep beside his pink bunny toy.”

8

“At almost 2 weeks, both of his eyes were open.”

9

“This is Roscoe, peaceful after a nice feeding and about 2.5 weeks old.”

10

“His eyes were open for almost a week, but this was the first time I think he was able to actually see me, his human mommy.”

11

“Around 3 weeks old, Roscoe graduated from the syringe to a bottle. He was growing so quick!”

12

“He began spending more time out and about, playing with his toys.”

13

“At 4 weeks, Roscoe had become a master escape artist, always plotting ways to escape the walls of his playpen.”

14

“Roscoe and Opie spent a lot of time cuddling and playing.”

15

“Roscoe loves attention and would seek it out even when his mommy was trying to study.”

16

“Roscoe made lots of friends.”

17

“But his favourite will always be Opie.”

18

“Best friends and brothers.”

19

“Roscoe at 16 weeks old, healthy and happy.”
