3-Legged Kitten Adopted By Amputee Girl Becomes Her Best Friend


Scarlette Tipton, now four-years-old, had her left arm completely amputated as a result of cancer when she was only 10 months old. It was such a great pain and a big loss for a small child and her parents to undergo. To make her feel not alone, the parents got her a wonderful Christmas present: Doc, a rescue kitten, had her right paw amputated after an accident involving a car.

“We wanted a little kitten to have [Scarlette] grow up with, so she has something that’s just like her,” mom Simone Tipton told told the interviewer. 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.”
