A brave Husky has been hailed as a hero after rescuing seven a.ban.doned newborn kittens inside a cardboard box in the woods – then assumes their role as a mother.
Banner is a Siberian Husky dog who assisted his mother, Whitney Braley, as a psychiatric and medical service dog. Since she was a puppy, she stayed with Whitney and trained to be alert during PTSD and anxiety attacks. Whitney suffered from anxiety attacks caused by post-traumatic stress disorder, and Banner helped her calm her down and lead her away from crowded places.
However, Banner’s service dog superpower is not her unique ability. During the day, she is an ordinary service dog, but she helps out the animals in distress when on duty. And that’s exactly what happened when she made a touching attempt to rescue newborn kittens from dying in a sealed cardboard box in the woods near their home.
Whitney Braley knew something was wrong when Banner suddenly became extremely miserable and kept pulling her dress in a ‘panic’ state. She let her determined dog lead her into the nearby woods – only to find Banner spinning around an a.ban.doned cardboard box “in the middle of nowhere.”
Whitney said her puppy plunged in after she opened the box and pulled out a tiny white kitten – with the mother shocked to discover six more ‘almost de.ad’ kittens lying down inside the box.
After bringing the newborn kittens back to their home in Menlo, Georgia, USA, Whitney said that Banner refused to leave their side. The dog also insisted on cleaning, cuddling, and napping with the seven kittens as if she were their mother.
“Someone must have put them in a cardboard box, tightly closed the lid, and left them there to di.e.”
Apparently, anyone who left kittens there did not want them found. Banner’s supernatural instincts saved the kitten. At first, Whitney thought they were de.ad because she couldn’t see any movement or sound – but then she noticed they started to wiggle.
“It pisses me off when anyone can do that with these innocent little animals. How cruel and cruel.”
Since that day, Banner has not left with the kittens and has adopted them as if they were his own.
“She was very exemplary,” Whitney told Bored Panda.
“Thankfully, all kittens find the right homes, and they will love them forever.”
“I’m so happy that now because of Banner, these kittens will go on to live their lives with loving families”
