Brave mother cat used herself as a shield against dog attack to protect her newborn kittens

In Rome, Georgia, Floyd Felines and Friends, shared a story with their supporters about a young mother cat named Wisteria who desperately needed rescue on Wednesday morning.

Wisteria was not just another mother cat, however – this young feline had been viciously attacked by a dog. A Good Samaritan saw the cat huddled in a corner and initially could not figure out why the cat didn’t flee as the dog continued its attack. Five reasons became clear as soon as the woman managed to get the dog to run away; she realized the mother cat had been huddled over protecting her five newborn kittens.

This amazing mother cat had been willing to withstand the brutality the dog inflicted on her in order to protect her kittens.

Don’t be surprised that no one has claimed Wisteria as their own, but now she is a treasured addition to Floyd Felines and Friends. She is currently at the organization’s partner veterinary care center and is badly hurt. Her recovery plan will be tricky because she needs to nurse her newborns.

We are the lucky ones to give her and her babies a safe shelter. No more 30 degree nights outside, no more huddling for safety, no more searching for food, no more babies Wisteria.


Donations are appreciated. Wisteria remains in critical care and her babies are with her.

Greatest supply needed: a safe carrier to get to and from the vet and Royal Canin mom and baby hard food
