A cat may have nine lives, but Paisley gave birth to nine lives! She was very pregnant when she was surrendered by her owners to the Nash County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on May 1st. Approximately one to two years old and an American Staffordshire mix, Paisley gave birth to nine pups on May 5th. The shelter was no place for Paisley to nurse and care for her puppies. What was urgently needed was a rescue.
