While she has not yet told us her name, she is our hero. She was brought to the Sanctuary a week ago with five week old kittens. She gave birth to the kittens while being attacked by a raccoon. Her back legs had been chewed and bitten. She managed to get onto a back porch and the woman who lived there was able to chase away the raccoon. After she finished giving birth, it was obvious that her back legs were severely injured. When she was brought to the Sanctuary her temperature was over 104, but she was cuddling with her nursing babies. Her back legs were covered in pus filled sores. Our Vet immediately started her on antibiotics and we soak her back legs daily. While her temperature has gone down and her legs are no longer oozing pus, she still needs daily treatment. Despite her discomfort, she nurses her kittens with great love. We will continue to care for her and give her the support she needs to nurture her little ones. She has shown herself to be a fearless and devoted Mom and is certainly our Heroine.
