Scarlett the cat, a calico was a hero who drew worldwide acclaim after rescuing her five kittens from a Brooklyn fire. “She was the most precious and loving cat, and in our household, it was all about Scarlett,” said her owner, Karen Weller. Scarlett’s ascension to stardom began in an abandoned Brooklyn garage, where she was tending her litter of five when a fire broke out in March. Firefighters spotted Scarlett, despite burns to her eyes, ears and face, toting each kitten out of the building to safety. Once outside, Scarlett nudged each baby with her nose to make sure she found all five. The hero cat was taken to the North Shore Animal League with her offspring – and their story soon attracted attention from around the globe. In her new Brooklyn home, Scarlett was top cat. Four of her five kittens survived the blaze and they were adopted in pairs.
