KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI —A mother cat who was injured accidentally last week by a chain saw is on the mend.
Great Plains SPCA posted on its Facebook page that the cat, named Ramona, was sheltering her newborn kittens in pampas grass when a man trimming the grass with a chain saw accidentally hit her and also one of her kittens.
Shelter workers said the man had no idea that the animals were nestled in the grass. He gathered them up and took them to a veterinary clinic.
Great Plains said Ramona’s right front leg had to be amputated.
Ramona and her babies, including the one who was grazed by the chain saw, are now in foster care and are doing well.
