Athena was rescued by the Humane Society from a puppy mill in North Carolina. At the time, she was suffering from eye and upper respiratory infections. She was also very feisty, having lived her entire life in squalor.
Athena didn’t know that her life could be any different and didn’t trust those trying to rescue her. She was so sassy that it eventually earned her the title on Facebook as “Athena The Pissy Kitty.”
Brother Wolf Rescue came in and rehabilitated Athena, getting her all the medical care she was in desperate need of. She made such a lasting impression on them that she became their spokes
personcat and now she helps raise awareness for animals born into puppy mills, living with extreme cruelty.
Athena now has a home and a family thanks to her new owner Dani Ellis. She also knows what it’s like to be loved, although she’s still as sassy as ever. You can check out more of her story here.
