In March, a tabby cat named Scarlet and her newborn kitten Scout were taken to Ashley’s Kitten Academy, a non-profit animal rescue center in Seattle, Washington. Both felines were under the care of volunteers at the facility.
Initially, Scarlet felt worried and frightened, but as she got to know her new family, she began feeling more at ease and even started purring softly. Scout was delighted to have his mother’s undivided attention and love, as she pampered him with cuddles and made sure he stayed clean with regular showers.
It’s a rare sight to spot a mom out and about with her child. This young boy seems like he might be mischievous and get into some trouble. Scarlet required urgent medical attention as she had a concerning lump on one side and a tangled mess on the other.
Following Scarlet’s trip to the vet, it was revealed that the lump was an abscess. With proper medical attention, care, nutrition, and a cozy bed, Scarlet made a speedy recovery. Subsequently, her personality blossomed. Despite missing her top canines, she greets her owners with a wagging tongue and affectionate glances.
As Ashley enters the room, her furry feline friend purrs with excitement and eagerly seeks out some back rubs, clearly happy to see her.
The little feline bounced back to life with renewed vigor and focused all her energy on caring for her lone kitten. As the tiny kitty suckled from his mother, he quickly picked up the art of purring and started using it actively.
Scout grew stronger by the day, gained weight, and began exploring his surroundings with curiosity. Sweet Scarlet, his loving mother, encouraged and comforted him with soothing strokes on his back, boosting his confidence to keep exploring.
At three weeks old, Scout’s weight was a little over one pound. Thanks to Scarlet’s regular feeding, the kitten was growing quite well. Ashley pointed out that Scout was bigger than expected for a kitten of his age, but it made sense since he had exclusive access to the milk bar.
As Scout grows up, she’s becoming more playful and her mother is joining in on the fun as well. They are having a great time together playing, with Scarlet dropping her toys and retrieving them to share with her kitten. Ashley, who set up a camera in the room, observed this adorable mother-daughter duo. Scout is also learning important manners and behavior from her mother, who is keeping a close eye on her development.
Ashley promises that her little boy, Scout, now has a bigger collection of toys, and she is excited to provide him with more play space. Scarlet, the mother of Scout, takes great care of him, and he is a chubby and satisfied child. In their temporary home, Scarlet and her kitten are thriving and happy. Despite her difficult past, Mama Cat has blossomed and enjoys being pampered and receiving belly rubs. She expresses gratitude to her foster family every morning.
