“We wanted a little kitten to have [Scarlette] grow up with, so she has something that’s just like her,” Simone, Scarlette’s mom, said. They spent half a year looking for a three-legged kitty to join their family.

The pictures of Scarlette with her “best friend” was posted on Facebook touching  so many hearts.

“Just so happened. This is clearly a God orchestrated story! A story recorded in Scarlette’s book long before she was even born!” A. Day  said. “Made me cry! Doc couldn’t have found a more perfect family for his forever home. I know he and Scarlette will develop a wonderful relationship.”

“I’m crying! So happy this little angel has found a good home with your family. I love furry tale endings!” said N. Kravanis.

While E. Goñi thought: “It’s very clear why God chose you to be Scarlette’s parents! No one could possibly treasure her more. What a wonderful thing to do for her and for the kitten!”
