This Two Day Old Kitten, Covered In Maggots Almost Died... Until A Puppy Came Along

January 28, 2014

A two day old kitten was found behind an apartment complex, stuck under a log and covered in maggots. The rescuer only discovered the kitten because her puppy, Opie, ran over to the kitten and refused to leave his side. Over the next month, the kitten was bottle fed, loved, and eventually saved from what was almost certain death.

Here is the two day old Roscoe after being found by Opie.

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

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

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

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

He loved to be held and cuddled after feedings.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Roscoe made lots of friends.

But his favorite will always be Opie.
