Badly wrapped presents, random green death spikes... there’s not a lot else you’d expect to find under your Christmas tree.

Danielle Lopez and her cat called Tink bucked the trend by hiding newborn kittens under it this year.

Rescue cat Tink had been living with her new family, including male cat Sagwa, for three months, until the newly acquianted cat couple decided to extend their feline family.

Lopez told BuzzFeed:

I heard a soft meow and thought it was our other kitty and then saw the firstborn crying.

I was in shock. I started running around the house to lock up [Sagwa] and grab towels to help her.

Tink gave birth to four live cats, and the family called then Noel, Joy, Christmas and Faith. Sadly, Jesus, the fifth, was stillborn.

But everyone else is doing just fine:

And in a strange twist, Mara Wilson (the one and only Matilda), tweeted that her cat looks similar to Tink:

And people's responses were great:

Merry Christmas, everyone!
