In terms of Scarlett, she found the ideal owner in Karen Wellen, a woman who was no stranger to mishaps
She’d been hurt on the road, and her ordeal inspired her to adopt a cat who had gone through a similar ordeal.
Scarlett lived a long and happy life until October 11, 2008, when she died. People, on the other hand, remember her narrative and draw inspiration from it. The North Shore Animal League, which saved her and her kittens, now offer an award for courageous animals called the Scarlett Award for Animal Heroism.
