The tabby cat is happy to find a family that she trusts so much that she even allows her to care for her only child.
In early March, a long-haired tabby cat named Scarlet came to the volunteers of the animal rights activists Ashley's Kitten Academy ( in Seattle, Washington) with her only kitten, Scout.
At first, she was very nervous and afraid, but, having met the family of her guardians, she calmed down and even began to purr. Scout was only a few days old, and all the attention of his mother belonged to him. Scarlet wrapped herself around her only kitten and bathed him in love.
“It's not often that mothers with one kitten come to me. This boy is going to be absolutely spoiled,” says Ashley Morrison, founder of Ashley's Kitten Academy. Scarlet needed a medical examination. She had a suspiciously large bump on one side and a patch of matted hair on the other.”
The veterinarian cured the bump, which turned out to be an abscess, and put the striped kitty in order.
With proper care, good food and comfortable conditions, Scarlet's appetite was restored. She loosened up and began to show her real temper.
The mother cat lacks upper fangs, and the expression of her muzzle is inimitably charming. Often she sticks out her tongue while doing something.
“She is glad to see me when I enter the room – she starts to purr and wants to have her back scratched,” Ashley says.
While Scout grew bigger and more inquisitive, Scarlet also revealed her inner kitten and began to devote time to games.
“The last few nights, when I go to bed, I hear something going on in their room.”
Ashley set up a camera there and saw Scarlet hunting and scattering her toys. Having scattered them all, she then collects them and brings them to her son in the nest – she shares.
“Now she has more toys and I can't wait to give her more room to play ”, says Ashley.
While the kitten perfects its gait, Scarlet is always there and looking after him. “Scarlet is a great mom and Scout is a very chubby happy boy. She cares a lot about him.”
Mom and son live nicely at overexposure.
Scarlet is really blossomed from the day it arrived. She enjoys having her tummy scratched and greets her family of caregivers every day with her signature smile.
Scout learns to smile like a mother. “He is special, and more and more manifests itself every day.”
