Scarlett Saves Her Family is the amazing true story of the New York cat who miraculously rescued her five kittens from a raging fire. It was a freezing March night when firemen were called to a blaze at an abandoned garage in Brooklyn. Pitiful meows alerted the firemen to five tiny kittens that had been carried from the fire by their badly burned mother cat, who would not rest until every kitten was safe.
The 10 heartwarming chapters capture the amazing frenzy that Scarlett and her kittens generated. From the vets at the North Shore Animal Clinic where the felines were treated to Oprah Winfrey, thousands followed the story with baited breath. This wonderful tribute to animal bravery is told from the perspective of rescuers, vets, and the lucky new owners of the feline brood. The gorgeous photographs speak a thousand words; the severly burned Scarlett is barely recognizable as a cat, but later photographs reveal a healthy, happy animal. The kittens grow from tiny burned bundles into beautiful, fat cats. Scarlett Saves Her Family is an adorable book.

Scarlet may be just a cat to some, but to me she personifies everything a mother should be! If you care about animals, you can't help but love Scarlet. You will be deeply touched by the many caring humans who became intertwined in her little life. From the truly compassionate firefighter, David Gianelli, to the woman who eventually adopted Scarlet, you'll pleasantly savor and revel in the goodness of mankind.
This book should be recommended reading in our public schools because it lovingly teaches children compassion and virtues. Though the photos of a severely burned Scarlet are graphic,they poignantly illustrate the depth of her devotion and willingness to suffer pain in order to save the lives of her babies.
I loved this book. I love knowing that Scarlet is forever loved and cherished and has left a indelible memory in the hearts of caring people everywhere.
It not only told about her bravery, but in the goodness of so many people who wanted to give her, and her kittens good homes.
It reminded me that there ARE still many people who are willing to share their love and concern with others- human or furry.
it proves that cats have the same feelings as we do when it comes to their babies. mother love is a strong emotion.
