Scarlet     pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif

In addition to all her other medical problems, sweet Scarlet's kidneys began to fail, and we helped her over the Rainbow Bridge on 10/18/10.  She had the happiest month of her sad, traumatic life -- a private stay in Jenni's sunroom -- before we said goodbye.

Biography:        When we found Scarlet in some bushes across the road from Witty Kitties, she probably didn't have long to live.  She was starving to death, could barely walk, and weighed just under 4.5 pounds.  She wasn't ready to give up yet, though, and started eating some wet food immediately while Dr. Jenni checked her out.  Scarlet spent most of her time hiding for a couple weeks, probably not able to believe that her suffering had finally ended.  She is four-paw declawed, which means she had to have been someone's cat at one time.  Who knows whether she got lost or someone just threw her out.  Once she started moving around a little more, we noticed she had a serious limp and took her in for x-rays.  There were no obvious problems to explain the limp, but she does have arthritis.  She also has a lot of buckshot embedded in her lower back.  Poor thing -- who knows what she went through earlier in life.  After lots of love and attention from Lori and our other volunteers, Scarlet is  now quite happy to be petted, and harldy ever hides any more.  She now weighs more than 7.5 pounds and is getting healthier every day.  If any of our kitties deserves a calm and loving forever home, Scarlet sure does!
