There is nothing stronger than the love between a mother and her babies. In this case, will it be strong enough to bring down an animal abuser?
Princess, a stay cat, and her litter were being looked after by a kind-hearted woman when one day the woman heard a loud bang?! Going to investigate the woman found Princess being held upside down by her neighbor by the tail?! When she asked if the cat had been killed he responded, “Well it shouldn’t have been in my yard,” according to a post on Facebook.
The woman called the RSPCA, the Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals, to help save Princess’s kittens. What emerged about what had happened to Princess is scarcely believable!! She had been thrown against a trailer repeatedly until her back had broken, both her hind legs had broken and her teeth?!!
But Princess was stronger than her assailant, she had kittens to take care of, and because of that a will to live, she put her attacker to shame!! After the attack was over and she was left for dead, she dragged herself back to her kittens. It must have taken her hours of unbelievable pain, but she got there.
Princess was picked up by the RSPCA and taken to Sawyers Gully Animal Rescue Weston. The rescue group, based in Weston, New South Wales, Australia, took her into its care and reunited Princess with her kittens last month, and also began raising funds to treat the mother cat’s injuries.

Princess cannot relieve herself on her own and needs meds twice daily. Vets say surgery to address the paralysis would do more harm than good; Walton is looking for ways to create a custom wheelchair for Princess.
Within days, the GoFundMe account set up by Walton met its goal of $10,000. It has since exceeded that and is approaching $17,000. Walton expressed her gratitude to the many who contributed. She also applauded the cat’s caretaker, who took a bold step.
“The witness has decided to come forward to contact the RSPCA to see if we can get this man prosecuted,” Walton wrote on Facebook. “Please understand this is a huge step for a single mum to come forward to face a bully who she is scared of. We applaud you and are behind you 100%.”
After naming him, the man was arrested in relation to the injuries inflicted on Princess.
Princess got justice, along with the love of a caring support group and a reunion with her kittens. She has brought to light the ugliness of abuse — as well as the enduring strength of a mother’s bond.
We hope you loved this happy ending. If so please SHARE this story with all you cat loving friends.
