A Heavily Pregnant Stray Cat Wanders Into The Local Shelter To Give Birth To 5 Kittens.

Staff at an animal shelter in Maryland have all fallen in love with a heavily pregnant stray cat which wandered in after she was dropped off by a Good Samaritan.

Named Chloe, the nine-month-old stray cat won the hearts of workers at the Anne Arundel County Animal Control in Millersville, Maryland.

In a Facebook video, we see a very heavy Chloe being walked on a leash. The shelter said that the feline won everyone’s heart “with her calm demeanor and adorable manners”.

Workers at the Anne Arundel County Animal Control in Millersville, Maryland, immediately fell in love with Chloe (pictured) and looked after he until she had her kittens.

Here is a video of Chloe walking into the shelter:

And here are the highlights:

The post read:

She walks on a leash better than many dogs; in fact, she followed the staff around even when not leashed.

Staff knew that they had to find Chloe a home quickly, because shelters can become a dangerous place for kittens.

But then routine health tests showed that Chloe “tested very faintly positive” for feline leukemia virus — a communicable illness among cats.

The nine-month-old cat is seen relaxing with her kittens after giving birth and being taken in by an experienced SPCA foster mom.

Fortunately, a more detailed test gave Chloe a clean bill of health and days later she gave birth to five healthy kittens: Catelyn, CeCe, Corbin, Cersei and Candice.

The whole litter has now found a home with Kim Morrissette, an experienced SPCA foster mom, who said Chloe and her newborns are all doing well, before adding:

Chloe is such a sweetheart!

She loves people and has the cutest little combination purr / meow. She will let you hold her in your arms like a baby and truly just wants to love on people.

She is being a very good momma to her babies as well.

Once the kittens become about eight weeks old, they and Chloe will be up for adoption.
