Two Day Old Kitten Covered in Maggots Rescued by an Unlikely Dog

Life as a two-day-old kitten can be pretty scary. Your eyes wouldn’t be open, you are defenseless, and you may get hungry. Life as a puppy may not be much easier – but the little puppy in this video is willing to help a fellow animal in need.

In 2014, a male pup named Opie heard a two-day-old kitten, Roscoe, cry and helped rescue him! Opie and his owner, whose name is James, were out for a walk in Ontario, Canada. Roscoe was in rough shape. He was completely covered in maggots and stuck under a log (how the kitten got there is unknown, maybe abandoned by his mother). Happily, Opie and Roscoe are both healthy and happy! James explains the two were destined to be brothers.
