    Rory the cat was sad because he accidentally ate rat poison.

    He needed a blood transfusion, but his local lab in New Zealand was closed.

    It could have been fatal.

    But then Rory's owner phoned a friend from her book club who suggested that they use her dog's blood.

    That's where Macy the dog stepped in.

    Cats don't possess the antibodies that reject dogs' blood, so a transfusion can enable them to regenerate their own red blood cells. You can only do this once, but it worked.

    "It was one of those situations that it was a do-or-die. He would have died if we did nothing," Ms Heller, Rory's owner told 3news.

    Now Rory's feeling much better. And he's got a new BFF.

    Look!
