    Scarlett the cat

    http://www.purr-n-fur.org.uk/famous/scarlett.html


    One of the most striking stories of a cat's courage came from Brooklyn, New York City, in 1996. On 29 March that year, in the area known as East New York, an auto-dealer's abandoned premises caught fire. Fire engines were soon on the scene and the blaze was almost extinguished when Fireman David Gianelli heard faint mewing coming from near the ruined building. He found there, huddled together, two 4-week-old kittens; and three others were found just across the street. Their mother, who had been badly burned, lay nearby. She had rescued her brood from the burning building and, as she could carry only one kitten out at a time, must have made five separate journeys into the thick, choking smoke and blistering heat in order to do so. Her devotion, courage and persistence are almost unbelievable.


    She beat lymphoma but kidney disease and other ailments wore her down. RIP brave and beautiful Scarlett.

    Oh, my God. How touching is that. God bless you, Scarlett.

    Rest in peace, dear valiant lady.
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    I'm crying after reading the entire article. What a brave smart cat! I think I recall hearing about Scarlett many years ago when she first saved her babies--wonderful brave momma to her babies. It sounds as if she was very much loved during her life and I'm glad all her babies found good homes except for one little one that got sick and died. Wonderful story; thank you for sharing it.

    Tears here, too, although I've heard the story before. God bless brave little Scarlett; surely she has a most special place at the Bridge.
    Thanks for letting us know.
