This is nothing short of a miracle. A rescue ginger kitten saved his best friend's (puppy) life, while the vet didn't think she would make it.
Meet Sapphire and Zekey! Two best friends who always have each other. When Sapphire the ginger boy was just weeks old, he was spotted in a garbage can. "He was all muddy, but I fell in love with him," Stephanie Tiu told us.
A week after Stephanie found Sapphire, she adopted Zekey, a month old puppy. The two furry buddies bonded right away.
However, Zekey became really sick and her health began to deteriorate. "I thought I would lose her but my kitty stood by her," Stephanie added.
She took Zekey to the vet and the puppy had to be hospitalized for treatment. They asked Stephanie to expect the worst.
When Stephanie went home, she realized how much Sapphire missed his best buddy. She talked to the vet and see if she could bring her cat in to visit Zekey for a few hours everyday to keep her company. "Normally, that's not allowed in the clinic, but they let me this time. So I took the cat to the hospital because I knew he needed to be there" she said.
Miraculously, Zekey's condition began to improve. Over the next two weeks, Sapphire continued to care for his best friend during his visits, nursing her back to health.
He purred and cuddled with Zekey and wouldn't leave her out of his sight.
Zekey is back to her healthy and happy self again thanks to her feline best friend!
All grown up today! Sapphire still cares for Zekey like a protective brother.
