Mother Cat, Kittens Found Tied Together in Sick Case of Abandonment

GEORGIA – When this mother cat and her four kittens were found they were tangled in the brush, but when the Kudzu had been brushed away, rescuers then realized why the mother cat and her litter were in such trouble.

Someone had zip-tied the kittens to their mother cat’s back right leg.

When they were all found, one of the kittens was already dead.


White County Animal Control rushed over to the mother and other three kittens were rushed to a veterinarian back on July 14.

Sadly and unfortunately, the remaining kittens were too far gone and passed away one-by-one over the next 24 hours.


“This is the sickest thing I’ve seen done to a cat, and I’ve seen so much,” stated Jill Kaloustian with Angels Among Us Pet Rescue’s Core Cat Team.

At first, vets believed that the mother cat, who they were now calling Aura, would more than likely lose her leg, but the swelling went down and it appears she will be fine.

Aura spent the entire weekend under round-the-clock vet care, receiving fluids and other supportive care.


She was spayed and vaccinated just on Monday and then was allowed to go home with her foster mother for some much-needed rest and recuperation.

Aura will be put up for adoption once she is fully recovered.

Anyone who has information on who is responsible for dumping Aura and her kittens is being asked to contact law enforcement in White County.
