Scarlet (AKA Paris) The Brave Little Hero!

One of our volunteers, Kim D.,  – who had adopted Scarlet (AKA Paris) only a month or two before the following incident, shared this incredible story with me a while back.  It is an amazing example of what a close bond Scarlet had already formed in a few short months with her brother Oliver!

Several months ago, Kim’s cat Oliver – a very sweet, lovey boy, had been viciously attacked by a neighborhood cat IN HIS OWN BACKYARD.

When Oliver was being attacked, Scarlet ran to help her brother.  She put herself between the attacking cat and Oliver and growled at the other cat.  Although she’s only about 8 pounds and was probably about half the size of the other cat, she tried to defend Oliver to the extent of putting herself in danger.  She was trying to give Oliver the chance to get away and back to safety.  Scarlet knew her brother was in trouble and reacted in the best way she knew how – positioning herself between the attacker and Oliver.  Growling and distracting the attacking cat so Oliver could get away.

Unfortunately, Oliver required extensive emergency surgery to remove a tennis ball size of necrotic flesh & treatment for the infection that was running through his system.  He had been bitten so badly & the punctures so deep that infection set in before they even realized he had the injury.

Oliver After Surgery

While Oliver recovered, Scarlet stayed right by his side.  Kim said when he first came home after his surgery, Scarlet would only leave him long enough to quickly get a bite to eat or use the litter box!  Then she would come right back to him and stayed by his side.

This is an amazing example of what a close bond Scarlet had already formed in a few short months with her brother Oliver!  Not to mention, a very brave and heroic act of loyalty and protection.  What an incredibly courageous little girl!

None of us will ever know what she had been through before coming to Ten Lives.  But it’s clear she’s put all of that behind her and is extremely protective of her new family – especially her new brother Oliver!

Scarlet is a real hero and truly one very amazing kitty!  She’s found her furever home and she has no intention of letting anything come between her and her new family.  Scarlet is a shining example that cats can and DO show loyalty, devotion and protection over those that they love.

Leo had to come back to us – he was not in the right situation.  The family tried so hard to love him & bring him out of his shell, but it just wasn’t working.  Better sooner than later.  Now I know where he would be best suited.

But, they adopted SHAKIRA this morning to be a playmate for Merlin.  It will be a perfect situation for all!!

Beechwood “Fair Day” Adoption Event! 8/7/13

Shakira & Harley were spreading the love to the Beechwood residents, staff & family members!  Limo & Jasper too, but they had all had a rough morning due to the cat room getting flooded & having only a short time out to play before the big event which we attended from 12 to 3pm.

Special thanks to TLC/PSP E. Amherst volunteers DAYNA & HER DAUGHTER KATIE and LAURA & HER DAUGHTERS ANNA & EMILY!  They were all handling the kitties & making sure everyone who wanted to pet or hold them had their turn.  As well as being well informed about each cat, our organization and being true ambassadors for our kitties & Ten Lives Club!!  Very well done Ladies!!

Dayna & Katie transported the kitties to/from the event along with supplies, PR materials and all other items needed from the store for the event!  Thank you so very much for all of your hard work and help!

All of the girls helped to get the cages stocked with litter boxes, food/water & bedding – what a time saver!  They also helped empty & break down the cages & haul supplies back to the vehicles.  WOW!  Thanks so much for your help & dedication to the kitties!
