A little girl named Scarlette who had to amputate her arm after finding out that she had a rare type of cancer with a unique best friend, a kitten named Doc. After an accident involving a vehicle, Doc had amputated her correct paw.
Scarlette’s California family came to the shelter on Christmas Eve and made Doc a part of their family.
“We really wanted to get her an animal she could relate to, something she could grow up with and feel like she’s got a unique bond,” said the mother from Scarlett.
“She noticed Doc on her side had staples and said ‘ owies. ‘ I let her know she had owies just like her, and she put her hand on her neck, nodding. She acknowledges the cat’s struggles are comparable to her.” she said.
Scarlette was born with a rare type of cancer that eventually resulted in her left arm being amputated when she was only 10 months old in October 2014. The surgery was a success, as it was told to the family that she is now free from cancer.
Following Scarlette’s favorite cartoon character Doc McStuffins, the kitten, named Holly Doc, was discovered bleeding with her arm in Perris on Dec. 17 by two females. Wrapping the bad kitten in towels, the females rushed it to the Animal Campus of San Jacinto Valley. Veterinarians were able to look after the kitten, but their correct front leg had to be amputated.
We’re in love like that! She [ Doc ] slept last night between me and my husband and constantly curled up, plopping on our chests and faces.
