Badly wrapped presents, some random green death spikes – there’s not much else you’d expect to find under your Christmas tree.
Danielle Lopez and her cat, whose name is Tink bucked the trend by hiding newborn kittens under it this year.
Tink, who was originally a rescue, had been living with her new family, which includes male cat, whose name is Sagwa, for about three months.
Recently, the newly-acquainted cat couple decided to extend their kitty family.
Lopez said to BuzzFeed:
“I heard a soft meow and thought it was our other kitty and then saw the firstborn crying.
I was in shock. I started running around the house to lock up [Sagwa] and grab towels to help her.
Tink gave birth to four live cats, and the family called then Noel, Joy, Christmas and Faith. Sadly, Jesus, the fifth, was stillborn”.
However, the rest of the crew is doing just fine:
And in a strange twist, Mara Wilson (the one and only Matilda), tweeted that her cat looks similar to Tink:

Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
