Cat Couple Requests Entry So They May Give Birth Inside
Gianna Llewellyn and her boyfriend Rob were taken aback when their new neighbors stopped over to say hello after they moved into a first-floor flat last summer.
A little black cat and an orange tabby cat approached the window as they were setting up the furnishings. Rob put out some leftover salmon because the cats appeared to be starving, and the appreciative stray animals devoured it right away.
After that, Llewellyn told The Dodo, “they continued to come back every single night.” Meowing, keeping watch at the door, and dozing on the window sill.
The cats, which they called Miso and Suki, first only came to the window when they were hungry, but over time, Llewellyn and Rob won their confidence. The cat pair soon spent all of their time at the flat, sleeping on the windowsill at night and relaxing in the garden during the day.
Llewellyn observed something strange about the black cat when the temperature dropped. When we first met them, “they were both fairly little,” Llewellyn said. Although Suki was extremely thin, her tummy appeared a tad large for her. So we thought, “Either she’s pregnant or something worse.
In order to transport the cats to the veterinarian, Llewellyn purchased two cardboard carrying cases from the pet store. Miso smashed a hole through his box to get back together with Suki because the cat pair detested being apart.
From the cardboard boxes, “they continued meowing to each other, making sure the other was OK,” Llewellyn said.
The vet confirmed that Suki was pregnant but otherwise healthy, so Llewellyn called the local rescue Little Wanderers NYC for support. Llewellyn and Rob became the cats’ official foster parents and moved them inside.
One night, the couple came home and spotted Suki on a towel with four newborn kittens by her side.
When she began giving birth once again, raising the total number of infants to seven, they assumed they had missed the major event. Miso was there to console his girlfriend throughout it all.
She continues to have contraction pains, and each time Miso heard her yell during one, she would rush over to be at her side, according to Llewellyn. “They make a wonderful couple.”
Miso took on the role of a proud father, playing and combing the kittens. When the kittens were little, it appeared that all of them were black, but as they grew older, we could tell that there was only one black cat, three gray and black tabbies, and three torties. “You can see a little orange in the tabbies and the torties, so Miso is definitely the father.”
