Three-Legged Rescue Kitten Becomes Besties With 2-Year-Old Amputee (VIDEO)
2-year-old Scarlette Tipton had her left arm amputated at 10-months-old after being diagnosed with an unknown form of cancer.
To make her feel better about her situation, her family adopted a three-legged kitten named Doc whose right arm had to be removed following a car accident.
“We wanted a little kitten to have [Scarlette] grow up with, so she has something that’s just like her,” said her mother of their shelter visit.
She continued, “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.”
