Life is miserable if you don't have a body part and it's hard to struggle when it is amputated. But courage, friendship and love can make you true warriors of life. This is actually proved again by a little girl of California 'Scarlett Tipton' who is now 2-year-old
She had lost her left arm because of cancer when she was 10 months old. Whereas Doc, a rescue kitten, lost her right paw completely after an accident.
So, on Christmas eve, the Tipton family decided to adopt Doc [kitten] for Scarlett who went through similar struggles like her. The family wanted Scarlett to have someone to grow up with, someone who is just like her. So the Little girl got a true best friend in the form of a kitten.
Humanity, love and friendship are still alive somewhere and that is shadowed in both of them.
"She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does", states Scarlett's mom.
As a result, Meow [kitten name after adoption] was rescued but had her right paw amputated after an accident.
Cancer from which the little girl suffered was never-seen-before. It made her left arm swell up and after diagnosis to keep her alive, they had to get her left arm amputated.
Her parents contended to comfort Scarlett after the operation.
Scarlett and Meow found each other on Christmas eve when the family got to know about the cat on TV. They both share the situation of tragedy with feeling of console and courage.
The family is very happy as they have two real life survivors in their home. One is their daughter and other is the cute little pet.
