Remember the “Pig-Pen” character in the Peanuts comic strips? The sweet little boy who was always very dirty?  We promised Doe #48 that her name will be much more dignified than that – and Mark & Kim really delivered – but we have to admit the resemblance is a bit uncanny.  Scarlet’s tags are always, irrevocably, dirty.  Day and night, fair weather and foul, she gives the appearance of someone who has just enjoyed a refreshing mud bath.  To each their own, Scarlet, to each their own. You just be you.

Scarlet, a dignified matriarch at aged ~14 as of the most recent updating of this post (Summer 2023), was spayed in our January 2017 field operations together with her daughter, Doe #50 (now ~7 years old).  Doe #50’s twin sister, Doe #58 was spayed a year later in our January 2018 field operations.  This inseparable mother-daughter trio, along with Scarlet’s BFF, Doe #15 (also ~14 yrs. old), live in Edgewood Grove and the surrounding yards.

Recently, Scarlet & Family have opened their hearts to Susie (Doe #88), a 2021 immigrant to the Clifton Study Area.  Susie, who was a loner when she arrived, appears to have integrated fully into Scarlet’s group.
