ORANGE COUNTY, Ca – Scarlette Tipton and her new cat Doc, have a few things in common which binds them together; they’re both survivors, and they’re both missing an arm.
Little Scarlette is a two-year-old cancer survivor, she sadly had her left arm completely amputated when she was just 10-months old.
Doc the cat who is three-months-old, lost her right paw to a car accident.
Christmas Eve, the Tiptons went to the animal shelter in California, by Wednesday, Doc and Scarlette were already became best friends.
Scarlett’s mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow that Scarlette “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.”
Hopefully this will shows sweet Scarlette that there are others out there with similar challenges and they can be happy, even furry ones. Wishing all the best for both sweet babies.
