Sweet Scarlett JohanssonKitty Wants to Snuggle With You!

Meet Scarlett JohanssonKitty, a 4 year old girl with a heart of gold! Scarlett came to us in late March with a tender secret of her own- she was an expectant momma kitty. We were fortunate to find a wonderful foster who took her in and gave her a warm and cozy home to deliver her vulnerable family. During that time, Scarlett has shown herself to be a model momma, doting on her tiny kittens and making sure their needs were all met, along with saturating them in the love that was in her heart. She has also shown herself to be a loving kitty to anyone fortunate enough to cross paths with her! Spend just a few moments with Scarlett, and her feet will begin flexing and curling- trying to entice you to snuggle in with her. She has a purr ready to sing to you, and beautiful big eyes eager to gaze at you in adoration.

Scarlett has spent the spring tirelessly caring for her tiny family, and now as a new season is upon us, we’d love to see Scarlett get the home of her own that she deserves….where she can be spoiled and pam’purr’ed for the rest of her life. Her hard work of being a stray momma now will reap its rewards when you choose to take her into your heart and home. Scarlett would be tickled pink to spend her days on comfy cushions in a sunny window, enjoying a tasty can of wet food as a treat, and even better, having a special person to follow around and worship!
