Cats have a way of prancing right into your heart and changing your life forever. Rachel – known as EnigmaWearingHeels on Imgur – had no intention of adopting a kitty until a petite ginger and white cutie appeared on her porch with a belly full of kittens.

Before she knew it, Rachel was the pawrent of eight-cats-in-one!


Rachel fed the mama-to-be and offered her shelter inside her home. After enjoying her meal, the cat expressed her gratitude by purring and “making biscuits” for the generous human.


Just like that, Rachel fell in love. She decided to keep the sweet kitty and named her Boots for her set of white paws.

A trip to the vet revealed that Boots was a healthy young mama and that Rachel should expect four to five kittens.

“This little loving ball of fluff laid on the scale at the vet, purring. I’ve never met a sweeter, gentler cat,” Rachel told Love Meow.


At home, the new cat pawrent offered Boots as much food as her pregnant belly desired – which was a lot!

“She was eating more food than I thought possible — it was quite impressive…. She now ran this house and completely overtook all of my usual sensibilities.”


On the morning of November 26, Rachel awoke to the tiny sound of kitten mews coming from Boots’ room. It was time to meet the newest additions to the family!

“We woke up to SEVEN baby beans in a cute kitten pile! I was shocked,” Rachel said. “We got 6 orange tabbies that look like mama and one solid white.”


Boots has proven herself to be a wonderful, attentive mama to her babies whom Rachel decided to name after the seven dwarves. The white kitty is Doc, the leader of the dwarves, because he is very bossy with his littermates. Dopey, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, Grumpy, and Sneezy round out the rest of the litter.


When they are old enough, Rachel plans to adopt the kittens out to loving homes. Boots, however, has already found her forever home!

“Boots adopted me and I just went with it,” Rachel said. “Seven babies is a tad overwhelming but It’s an incredibly special experience.”
