The Internet is full of bizarre cat stories, but this one posted on a Reddit forum takes the cake.
This time, the household pet cat is the mastermind behind an accidental pregnancy which led to a couple’s unplanned baby number two!
Following the incident, the man posted a picture of his pet cat describing him as an “evil genius”. He states, “I seriously think the greasy orange little s— is still smarter than our nearly 1-year-old.” Check it out:-
He narrates the incident in great detail. Going in flashback mode, he starts by mentioning that after a difficult first pregnancy, the couple had hoped to delay having their second child for at least a few more years. And for that, his wife started out with taking birth control pills.
But soon enough, they realized that “the pill tends to make her very sick and she wanted to lose weight, so she stopped taking it.” He continued saying, “We thought rubbers would be enough, but that’s where our cat comes in…”
He talks about how sneaky and clever his cat is, which can maneuver itself into any place inside the home. “No door, drawer, or cabinet can stop him, and if he knows where something he wants is he WILL find it.” He continues, “It’s so bad that for weeks after adopting him I thought there was a poltergeist in the house because each morning I’d wake up to find every single cabinet door in the kitchen wide open!”
Which brings us to the point of how the accidental pregnancy actually happened. The man admits he’s a party to blame because he kept his condoms in the same drawer which the cat “loves to get into” and “shred apart” the Q-tips that are kept in it.
He recalls the scene with the cat vividly saying, “He must have seen the box of Q-tips in the drawer when I put my rubbers away, because not even an hour later I stumbled upon a horrific scene of chewed plastic straws, shredded cotton fluff and shiny gold condom wrappers scattered around the gapping drawer that once contained them.”
While the man duly cleaned up the mess and shrugged it off, he mistakenly forgot about it later that night, “stumbling into the dark bathroom, opening said drawer, and blindly fumbling around in the box to pull out a condom (as was the routine) thinking nothing of what happened earlier.”
Flash forward a few weeks later, when his wife felt nauseous and, after three pregnancy tests, discovered she was pregnant, which left them confused as they were presumably careful. Until the man remembered the mess his cat had made earlier.
“I ran over to the bathroom drawer where I kept the condoms, dumped out the box on the counter and started to inspect each miserable little foil square. Sure enough, several had noticeable scratches, teeth marks, and even full-blown punctures in them,” he revealed.
He concluded by saying, “Can’t wait to explain to my new son or daughter one day that they owe their existence to the family cat!” You can find his entire post here.
People in the comments section had a lot to say:-
The man was quick to put people’s worries to rest and later said, “The timing is certainly off but the baby is very much wanted. In an ideal world, we would have waited at least another year for number two, but oh well, life happens.”
