Cat Gives Birth Under Christmas Tree, And It’s The Best Present Ever

Christmas gifts came early this year for Danielle Lopez, who found her rescue cat Tink giving birth under a Christmas tree. “I heard a soft meow and thought it was our other kitty and then saw a tiny kitten crying,” 17-year-old Lopez said. “I was in shock,” she added.

Three more adorable kittens followed, all looking like presents on the tree skirt. Given the circumstances, they were named accordingly: Noel, Joy, Christmas, and Faith. Lopez shared a picture of the litter of kittens on Twitter, and it went viral. Some people called it “magical,” while others said it was nothing short of a Christmas miracle.

Indeed, no one thought this to be possible three months ago when Lopez adopted Tink as a stray rescue cat. “If we didn’t take her home, she would have died. She was all bones,” says the Florida-based teenager. Lopez had already owned a handsome cat named Sagwa, who became the stepfather of Tink’s cute kittens. Now the rescue a proud mamma who gets to live with her kids. How’s that for a Meowy Christmas!

Are you sure this is a perfect christmas story? The "Lopez had already owned a handsome cat named Sagwa who became the father of Tink’s children" made me a bit suspicious. So, neither was the male cat neuted nor the cat spayed? And on top of that, the owner did not realize the pregnancy? Well, the pictures are really cute, but the background does not seem like the highest degree of responsibility to me.

Agreed. This is lovely, but could have been avoided. I'm going to give a 17-year-old the benefit of the doubt and assume she might be wrapped up in the drama and beauty of the scene and not understand the consequences. The adults in her life should know better. Let's just hope that someone with a clue points them in the right direction for spay/neuter services for her cats as well as the kittens. It's so sad that things like this have to happen.

Are you for real? I rescued a kitty skin and bones once. Took her home a fed her good. Her stomach popped out in like two days. She was pregnant, but you couldn’t even tell because she and the babies inside her were starving. You might actually be in a situation before you go judging. I was planning on taking my cat to get spayed when I found out she was pregnant. Through the starvation, you would not have known. Had she went and had her fixed the first day or two, those babies would have been dead. Luckily I know what a pregnant cat looks like and knew she was pregnant.

There is a discrepancy between the story as told by boredpanda and buzzfeed. In the Buzzfeed version they adopted her three months before Christmas either last year, or even before that. In that context the picture does make sense.
