Nothing was going to keep this cat away from her kittens - not even a traumatic beating that left her partially paralyzed.
Recently, a mom cat was wandering through a yard in Australia when an angry man brutally attacked her. He allegedly grabbed the stray cat by the tail and threw her up against a trailer.
When an animal rescue group arrived, they believed the cat to be dead. So, they gathered her one-week-old kittens and left her. The next day, however, something amazing happened.
When the mom regained consciousness, she started dragging herself using only her front paws to the spot where her babies were last seen – a feat that would have taken hours. When the local RSPCA found out, they immediately picked her up to be reunited with the kittens.
Unfortunately, the cat – now named Princess – is paralyzed for life. She is, at least, now being cared for by Sawyers Gully Animal Rescue’s owner, Dee Walton, who can afford to help the cat do basic tasks, such as urinate and defecate.
Animal rights activists will be happy to hear that the man responsible for paralyzing the cat has been arrested. While Princess might receive a wheelchair in the future, she is presently just enjoying be reunited with her babies.
Walton told The Dodo:
“Princess is a fighter, she teaches me everyday not to give up. I believe those kittens gave her the will to live.”
Following are some photos of the happy mom reunited with her kittens:
“I was informed that the [neighbor] had [the mom] by the tail and threw her up against a trailer.”
