When little Scarlette’s arm had to be amputated because of an aggressive form of cancer, her parents came up with a brilliant idea to imbue their daughter with confidence and zest. They decided to get her a pet with similar physical challenges, and by chance, found the perfect match in a kitten that had lost a front leg. Nowadays, Scarlette and Doc are very much attached, growing up and playing together, and nothing holds them back.
