Owners Named Their Cat Duchess And Then She Gave Birth To All Of “The Aristocats” Cast

Some say life is a fairy tale, and some wish their lives were a Disney movie. It turns out that you always have to be careful what you wish for because sometimes the most random decisions are the ones to grant your wishes. That said, we begin the story of Duchess the cat and her tiny kittens, who had never wished for a cartoon life and yet found themselves living one now.

It sure isn’t the first time for a cat to cause surprises or crack us up, but it’s definitely quite an astonishment for the owners and a real treat for people on the Internet.

Recently, pictures of this white cat named Duchess went viral online

The stray cat was adopted by Shelby Sewell-Lopez from East Texas in 2018. Upon her adoption, Duchess was very frail, and her hair was falling out. She had a hernia and every parasite a cat could have. In an interview with Bored Panda, Shelby said, “Through all of the rehabilitating, she kept her calm demeanor, and a beautiful cat emerged. She is unbothered by everything except the vacuum cleaner!”

One day, Duchess was found in a closet with something that at first looked like a mouse

Despite her new family thinking that Duchess was spayed, one day, they found her in an upstairs closet with what at first was thought to be a mouse. Boy, were they wrong!

It turned the mouse was a newborn kitten and three more were to follow

The “mouse” turned out to be Berlioz, then came Marie, and Toulouse. Everything fell still, so they thought the birth was over but then the “bonus kitten” Blue appeared. “Although Blue is not an official Aristocat, he is the most affectionate and definitely steals most of the attention,” says Shelby. Despite her rough past, Duchess is an extraordinary mother who never leaves her litter of kittens. Even when the cute kittens grew and started exploring the house, she always accompanied them. Shelby admits that the cat became quite spoiled because of her constantly bringing her meals and water directly to her.

The owners soon noticed that the kittens looked just like the characters from The Aristocats

Even the genders matched those of the Disney characters, so they decided to name them retrospectively – Marie, Toulouse, and Berlioz.

And they couldn’t separate the special bunch

Even though they decided to keep all of the adorable kittens fairly quickly, it took a little bit of persuading Shelby’s husband.

The Internet was quick to respond to their cuteness

This is adorable--just keep them away from anyone named Edgar. 🤣 Also, are they going to adopt an orange male cat and name it Thomas 'O Malley? 🤣
