Brave Husky Discovers Box Full Of Nᴇᴀʀ-Dʏɪɴɢ Kittens And Adopts Them

         Meet Banner, a service dog with a true heart of gold. Banner doesn’t just help out his human, Whitney Braley with her ᴅɪsᴀʙɪʟɪᴛʏ, but she also loves rescuing other animals and need. Banner is a 3-ʏᴇᴀʀ-ᴏʟᴅ Husky and was trained by Whitney from a pup to assist her with a number of things:

“She ᴀʟᴇʀᴛs to PTSD ᴇᴘɪsᴏᴅᴇs, ᴀɴxɪᴇᴛʏ ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs, ᴍɪɢʀᴀɪɴᴇs, guide work, momentum pull, ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ʀᴇᴛʀɪᴇᴠᴀʟ, sᴇʟꜰ-ʜᴀʀᴍ ɪɴᴛᴇʀʀᴜᴘᴛɪᴏɴ and a few more” Whitney and Banner both enjoy rescuing animals in need and caring for them:

“We do a lot of ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ, and she’s always ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄʜᴇᴅ to kittens. Two years ago I had my first bottle baby kitten that was found in a ditch, and Banner raised her.”

“That particular cat still lives with us but she’s fostered at least ten different liters of kittens over the years. This is the first time SHE found something like this.” Recently though, Banner found 7 newborn kittens, barely a day old in a sealed cardboard box in the woods.

Proud pet owner Whitney Braley, 30, says she doesn’t know how service dog Banner knew the tiny cats were there. But she said the kittens who looked about a day old were “close to ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ” before they were ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇd. Whitney knew something was wrong when Banner, three, suddenly became extremely ᴅɪsᴛʀᴇssᴇᴅ and kept pulling on her dress in a ‘state of ᴘᴀɴɪᴄ’ last Tuesday outside their home in Menlo, Gᴇᴏʀɢɪᴀ, USA. The mum-of-three let her determined dog lead her into the nearby woods – only to discover Banner circling around an ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ cardboard box.

Whitney said her pooch dived straight in after she opened the box and pulled out a tiny white kitten – with the mum sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ to discover six more ‘barely alive’ kittens laying inside the box. The kittens weren’t making any sounds, and Whitney thought they may be ᴅᴇᴀᴅ. But aside from being very cold, they were alive.

“I don’t even know how Banner knew they were in there,” Whitney told Good Times. “The kittens were ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ and weren’t meowing or anything. She just knew somehow. She is a true hero. If she didn’t find the kittens, they would have all ᴅɪᴇᴅ.”After ensuring all the kittens were healthy, Whitney made the selfless decision to look after the tiny seven felines until they are old enough to be adopted. And along with the help of a cat ‘wet nurse’ who feeds the kittens, Whitney said her dog Banner has been keeping a loving eye on her ‘babies’. She said: “She won’t leave their side. You can see her watching them all the time and counting them to make sure they’re all still there.

“She lays down with them, cuddles with them and takes naps with them. She is like their adopted mum and she sees them as her babies.

After bringing the newborn kittens back inside her house, Whitney said Banner refused to leave their side – with the dog insisting on cleaning, cuddling and napping with the seven kittens as if she were their mother. Whitney said: “She had been acting really weird all morning. I couldn’t understand what was wrong with her.

“She wasn’t listening to me when I told her to come, which isn’t like her as she is always very well behaved.

“I knew something had to be wrong. She was getting really ᴅɪsᴛʀᴇssᴇᴅ . Banner has never left the kittens side, ever since the moment they were found, he is like their new adopted mother.

“I got her spayed around 1.5 years old, but she’s very maternal”

“Now I will find the kittens appropriate homes, that will love them forever. Our local shelter kills in three days, so it’s best if I do it myself. That’s the reason I always end up fostering babies. I don’t want them to die.”

“I’m so happy that now because of Banner, these kittens will go on to live their lives with loving families. It warms my heart.”
