This young woman from Florida, U.S.A., celebrated Christmas a little early. Or rather, it was her cat who offered her a surprise. On December 16, Danielle Lopez discovered Tink giving birth on the skirt of her Christmas tree.

"I heard a soft meow and thought it was our other kitty and then saw the firstborn crying," explained the 17-year-old to BuzzFeed. "I was in shock. I started running around the house to lock up Sagwa (editors note: the other cat) and grab towels to help her."The little female ended up bringing four kittens into the world without the slightest complication, filling her family with happiness. Since it is the holiday season, they decided to call the little ones Noel, Joy, Christmas and Faith.

Four births that top off two years of happiness for Tink in her new family. The cat was rescued by the Lopez family after she was abandoned, alone on the streets and starving. Danielle remembers:

If we didn’t take her home she would have died. She was all bones.

Thanks to love and amazing care, Tink recovered quickly and was doing well. She got close to Sagwa, the Siamese male already present at the Lopez house, and the duo became inseparable. Because he could not be neutered due to a congenital illness, the young male is most certainly the father of the kittens.

A situation which provoked a reaction from some on the Internet surprised that they had left the two cats un-sterilized. The family quickly calmed the hubbub by explaining that she was scheduled to be sterilized until they discovered that she was already pregnant.
