This Amputee Kitten And Toddler Are Alike In The Most Amazing Ways…AGibbs
Scarlette Tipton, now 2-years old, was born with a rare form of cancer. At the age of 10 months, her left arm had to be amputated. Her parents, Matt and Simone, wanted something special for her. Something special that would help Scarlette with her on-going recovery. That support came in the form of a kitten who had also suffered an amputation.
The couple had heard about a kitten, named Doc, that two women had found bleeding and suffering from traumatic injury in December through local news reports. Doc’s left front leg had to be amputated. They decided that she would be the perfect companion for their daughter.
Upon meeting 3-month old Doc for the first time, Scarlette pointed out that she had an “owie.” Her mother agreed and told her that Doc would be just fine, just like she is.
How wonderful that these two, Scarlette and Doc, have found one another. What a truly heartwarming Christmas story.
