But despite the difficulty, nothing was going to stop Princess from being reunited her babies.
Her wish was granted when she was discovered alive and picked up by the local RSPCA, then reunited with her kittens. As it turns out, Princess had a microchip and her original owner was tracked down - and decided to relinquish her and her RSPCA, which in turn gave up the cat family to the pound, since it was unlikely that the paralyzed Princess would a home with her babies, Walton said. After learning their story and discovering their fate, Walton expressed interest in caring for Princess and her babies - and decided to bring the entire family home from the pound.
The cat family now resides at the rescue with Walton. Princess is unfortunately paralyzed for life. She can't urinate or defecate on her own. Since she is a cat with extensive special needs, she'll remain at Sawyers', her new forever home, for the rest of her life.
For now, as her kittens are still quite young, Princess has the comfort of nursing them and raising them until they're old enough to part ways.
