Date of Birth: June, 2005
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!
