Erin Breean is a kindly woman from Austin, Texas who has recently been getting visited by a stray little cat. This cat, whom her partner and herself named Kevin, was highly affectionate and an overall incredible little kitten. Kevin showed up on their patio, demanded food, meowed at them, and kept showing up after an indeterminant period of time. Deciding to take the responsibility for this little cat, Erin took Kevin to the vet to see if he was chipped and that’s when the story unfolded into the kind of chaos that the internet loves.
See, Kevin had more than what met the eye. Instead of being just one faithful stray, he was, in fact, a she, and she was pregnant. With an entire litter of kittens. Maybe that’s why Kevin kept bothering them for love and affection, because she needed to set the stage for her own newborn babies! Erin had bit off far more than she could chew, and it was hilarious to watch.
As you can see, Kevin is quite the charmer.
Erin has explained how they came to the name;
“Catching her was a 4-day ordeal of offering her treats and then food. During this process, my boyfriend Landon named him (her) Kevin. We would sit out on the patio with her for an hour or two every evening, she would roll around on her back for belly rubs but was really skittish and didn’t want us petting her. She would chase after us if we would get up and walk away, though.”
Kevin’s entire story was a wreck.
Not only is Kevin an adorable little angel herself, she’s about to give birth to several others.
Kevin let herself in, and Erin explained, “She took a few laps around my office and laid down in the hallway like, ‘This is my house now’. I closed my office door, put her in our bathroom, and found a vet that would see us the next day to see if she was chipped. She wasn’t, and that’s when we found out that she was a girl and pregnant. From the first time we spotted her in the green belt to today on our couch, she talks nonstop. She has full conversations with her kittens, which is cute to hear from the other room.”
Kevin’s got quite the attitude.
And while new to the family, she gets along with everyone quite well.
After all, she’s about to give birth to a family of her own!
When referring to their puppy, Murphy, they said, “We were really hesitant to introduce Kevin and Murphy at first, but Kevin took the initiative and went right up to him, and they’ve been best friends since. He is obsessed with her kittens, and the kittens love to climb all over him, pounce on his tail, and sneak up and stalk him.”
She gave birth to a total of four baby Kevins.
Kevin’s babies are just the most adorable.
As the couple never had a female pet or a litter before, they were anxious about what to do. They said, “She had her kittens 4 days after we got back from the vet, and we spent all our time reading articles for what to expect when your cat’s expecting and asking for advice from friends who had fostered kittens.”
They got in contact with their local animal shelter with good news though! “This means that when they’re all old enough to go to their forever homes, they will be chipped, fixed, and vaccinated!”
They know how cute they are.
If you’re wondering whether they got adopted, there’s good news.
“They have all been adopted,” Erin stated, “They are going in pairs which we are very happy about, two to a friend here in Austin and two to our old roommate back in San Francisco. They’ll be ready to go home in a week and we’ve decided Kevin belongs here with us for good!”
Aren’t they just the cutest?
They get along so well with each other.
Kevin and Kevin’s babies were a wonderful addition.
They’re finally opening up their eyes.
Don’t you just wanna snuggle them?
The whole cat gang is here!
Kevin had three sons, and one baby girl.
They all love Murphy though.
They’re the cutest thing I’ve seen all day.
Me too, little guy, me too.
Would you wanna adopt one of Kevin’s babies?
They’er all so loving and affectionate, it’s hard not to.
What do you think? Would you pick up one of Kevin’s babies if you could? Have you ever been in a similar situation? Tell us about it in the comments!
