This kitten was found only 2 days old, trapped underneath a log and covered in maggots. He could have died if it weren’t for a four-legged rescuer who must’ve heard the meows for help and came running. Opie the dog refused to budge from the log until his owner saved the kitten and brought him home.
Here is little Roscoe save and sound at his new home, thanks to Opie the dog and his owner. Roscoe was only 2 days old when they rescued him.
After a warm bath and a visit to the emergency vet, Roscoe seemed to do much better.
He stayed nice and warm in his new comfortable nesting box they created for the little guy.
Here Roscoe is, cuddling with his new mommy.
Around 10 days old, Roscoe began to open his eyes.
While Roscoe was still little, he needed to drink his milk from a syringe.
He loved being cuddled and held after his tummy was content.
After eating, the tuckered out kitten would crawl back into his nesting box and fall asleep with his pink bunny.
At almost 2 weeks old, both his eyes opened!
This is Roscoe, sweetly content after his feeding. He’s about 2.5 weeks old in this picture.
His eyes were open for about a week already, but this was the first time he was able to see his adopted human mommy clearly.
At about 3 weeks, Roscoe graduated from the syringe to the bottle. Kittens grow up so fast!
He began to spend more time out of his nesting box, playing with toys and having fun.
At 4 weeks, Roscoe became quite the escape artist, plotting ideas to escape his playpen area.
Roscoe and Opie spent a lot of days together, cuddling and playing, happy to be friends.
Roscoe loves attention and would plop down on Mommy’s notes while she was trying to study.
Roscoe and his new family were fast forever friends.
But his favorite will always be Opie, his rescuer.
Best friends forever and brothers.
Roscoe at 16 weeks old, healthy and happy to be rescued into his forever family.
What an adorable little guy with an incredible story. He’s got a fabulous Marilyn Monroe beauty mark as well!
