Cindy was very concerned about protecting her kittens and did not want to be separated from them when she and her little family were rescued. Cindy had been shot in the head but her kittens came first.

Rescuers noticed that Cindy did not want to be taken from her kittens when they were found.  She was still protecting them after an attack that left her with a BB lodged in her head.

Cindy and the kittens were taken to the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Santa Fe, CA. Veterinarian Dr. Stephanie Oba, who helped Cindy, told the Carlsbad Patch, “”Mommy and baby kitties are all doing fine, but it was touch and go when they first arrived. They were all very tiny, malnourished, unvaccinated and very scared. It took a gentle hand to pull that momma away from her babies.” Dr. Oba removed the pellet, and Cindy is now recuperating and doing well, surrounded by her babies.

Cindy and her kittens remain the the care of the animal center and will be made available for adoption when they are ready.

  1. Karma should happen extra fast in situations like this! We know Karma WILL happen but it often seems to take forever to get here. Doesn’t it make you wish that there was an exponential element to it — that in the case of a small, innocent creature Karma would have some immediacy?

  2. A momma kitty, after being shot in the head by a BB, fights when people want her kittens so they can help her. Motherhood still fights to protect the tiny babies.

  3. One would hope that Karma could happen quickly in such a situation, but is still taking it’s time. It WILL happen sometime though.

  4. A friggin heartless idiotic clod that fancies himself some kind of ‘real man’ I would suspect.

    The same kind of ‘man’ that is rough on everyone else but will back down from a real man every time. People that do stuff like this are real POS’s to everyone they encounter. Wastes of time space and oxygen on the planet. And if it turns out it was a KID that did this, I guarantee you they are well on they way to becoming the exact kind of person I described above.

    As to karma, I’d like to help make his karma.

    This stuff REALLY ticks me off.
