A dog that saved the life of an abandoned kitten has become best friends with the feline.

The pets’ owner James Roode said Opie the dog and Roscoe the kitten are inseparable.

The two met in August of last year, according to ABC News.

Roode was out on a walk with Opie in their Canada neighborhood when the dog heard a squeak coming from a bush.

Opie led Roode to a newborn kitten that was pinned under a log. The dog cried until his owner rescued the kitten and wrapped it in his shirt.

They took it to an ER vet and nursed it back to health. A year later, the dog and cat act like siblings.

“When it was just Opie he was happy, but now there is such a friendship and love with them that Opie seems complete,” said Roode’s partner, Lia Spilka. “Living with them makes life feel complete. Just watching them grow to love and care for each other is a wonderful experience.”

Roscoe turns a year old Sunday and Opie will be there to celebrate.
