A tiny, sickly kitten found abandoned and covered with maggots in a field is now a healthy, thriving loved pet- thanks to the dog who saved his life.
The pup named Opie and his buddy Roscoe the kitten, are now the subject of some pretty adorable photos that are zooming around the internet like cute, furry hotcakes.
Lia Spika originally posted the photos on Imgur, and shared the story of how Opie found the kitten under a log in the field behind her apartment building and just refused to leave his side. As Lia said "Before you knew it, we had a kitten."
But Roscoe didn't have it easy, being tiny and sickly and motherless and all, so after a trip to the vet for a badly needed bath and some TLC, he turned the corner, and Lia fed and nursed him 'round the clock till he was stronger.
Now Roscoe is four months old, healthy and happy and loved by the whole family, especially his best buddy Opie.
