Bonded with Topaz

Meet Scarlett! Scarlett is a tiny sweetheart! Smallest in her litter, but with a mighty personality. She plays hard, and is a super chill snuggler. She’s a gentle, curious girl who’s bonded to her brother Topaz (foster family calls him Bo.) They’re almost always together. Because of this they must be adopted together. Please check out her brothers bio here ! She makes him more brave, and Bo has helped Scarlett understand that tummy rubs are amazing! This bonded pair must be adopted together. Check out this video here of me hanging on my foster mamas lap! 

This cutie is a litter box champ, and Scarlett also loves playing with all the toys. Particularly string toys!
Check out this adorable video of me playing here! She & Bo will be such great additions to their forever home. 

While in foster care we noticed that Scarlett was not walking normally and had a limp which didn't seem to slow her down. She was taken in for x-rays and was found to be missing the left femoral head of her femur. The vet thinks this was caused from a traumatic injury that happened at a young age and caused resorption of the bone. The plan is to monitor her for comfort as she thinks the leg will grow and may not cause any issue but she may continue to limp. If there are further changes as she grows or she becomes uncomfortable, amputation would be recommended. 

Scarlett was found as a local stray. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
