Indeed, as the day progressed, Terra went on to give birth to five more babies, bringing the litter total up to a lucky seven. And the new mom was totally overjoyed with her kitties, as oowth later described on imgur. “Mama cat made the loudest purrs while she was nursing them,” she wrote, adding, “She’d even knead at the air, she was so happy.” Feeling a bit overwhelmed, oowth subsequently did some online research into looking after kittens – but Terra mostly had it covered.

Indeed, the only thing Terra was unable to do was name her kittens, so oowth took the liberty. Two of the litter were male and ginger, so they were named Fred and George – possibly after the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter series. The rest of the brood were gray: there were two males, Tesla and Schrodinger, and three females, Duchess, Honey Boo-Boo and Minerva – another Potter reference?
