3-Legged Kitten Adopted By 2-Year-Old Amputee Share A Special Connection
January 4, 2016
At just 10 months old, Scarlette Tipton had her left arm completely amputated because of cancer.
Scarlette was born with an abnormally large left arm. It measured approximately three times the size of her right arm.
Doctors diagnosed her with Undifferenciated Spindle Cell Sarcoma.
Doc, a rescue kitten, had her right paw amputated after a car accident.
The two found each other on Christmas Eve, after the Tipton family learned about the cat on TV and visited her at the shelter. A few days later, Doc was part of the family.
"We wanted a little kitten to have [Scarlette] grow up with, so she has something that's just like her," Scarlette's mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow.
"She did notice that Doc had staples on her side and said 'owies'. I let her know that she had owies just like her, and she placed her hand on her side and just nodded. She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does."
