Calm down. I know this is stressful. You are already working on the most important thing, get them all somewhere warm, and safe, and dry where they can rest up. Make sure they have clean bedding, towels might be better so you don't get wood shavings in the wounds, clean water, and food available. If you have anything like nutridrench you can put in the water it would be good since they may not want to eat much due to stress.

They've been eating and drinking, just scared and weak, normally they struggle being picked up but only the less harmed one struggled, they are in there coop right now cuddling up with each other,

Once they are all set up you will need to examine them more thoroughly, one at a time. Take photos of any wounds you aren't sure how to best treat or wrap. Get them cleaned up as best you can, maybe in the tub inside with fresh water. Stop any active bleeding by applying pressure. Hopefully you do not still have much bleeding, but this is your priority!

Okay take really good pictures of the wounds just in case you see this cat back in your yard. So sorry about your Pekin. Is it easy for them to get into the road? We need better pics of the wounds and you need to wash them really well cats carry so much bacteria in their mouths infection is def a worry. How old are your Muscovy? Hard to imagine a cat attacking anything but small ducklings are you sure it wasn’t another type of predator?
