3-Legged Cat is 'Perfect Pet' for 2-Year-Old California Girl Who Lost Arm in Amputation

A couple in Trabuco Canyon, Calif., has adopted a kitten who recently lost one of her legs, as a pet for their 2-year-old daughter who is missing a left arm.

The three-legged kitten named Holly was adopted this past Wednesday by Matthew and Simone Tipton, who have two young children, including 2-year-old Scarlette Tipton, who was born with a rare cancer that ultimately led to her left arm being amputated last year when she was just 10 months old.

Simone Tipton told ABC News today she "immediately saw a special bond between" the three-month-old kitten and little Scarlette when they first drove over two hours to San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus to meet Holly just before Christmas Eve.
