Thank-you Simone for reminding everyone of a mothers love. I remember Scarletts story, and I know she is one of the bravest cats ever. I bet she is in heaven with all the Angels and God, living a very sweet life, and she is very happy.

I didn't realize Scarlett had passed. God Bless your little soul Scarlett. This hurts so much as I just had to put down my best friend of 18 years on October 24th of this year.
