|This brave parent and her offspring needed protection.|
She heard the loud and long scream in the early morning, when it was still dark outside. The Porter Ranch resident awoke quickly, immediately worried for the scared family of cats her dog had recently discovered behind a backyard bush. Turns out, the brave young mother cat was trying to protect four tiny, vulnerable babies from a pair of hungry, close coyotes the woman was able to scare away. She and her husband had been feeding the homeless felines for a while, but as of yet had been unsuccessful in approaching or capturing the group in order to save them. However, this lucky night, the terrified kitties ran in the home’s open rear doors ASAP when they had the chance and were guided inside.
Across the next weeks, the panicky, feral cats learned to trust their saviors, letting themselves be petted and even held. In fact, the mama liked attention so much, the couple thinks she may have been owned before but had been abandoned or left behind. Named Precious, she has a white mark on her chest and an absent ear tip near dots of missing hair, guessed to be the results of a predator's bite.
