California TikToker user Lucero Hernandez Vil has made the news after posting a TikTok of a Yorkie and a kitten. Strangely, the video convinced many people that the momma Yorkie Chloe gave birth to the kitten along with three puppies. What. is. happening?
First, the TikTok shows the tiny newborn black kitten alongside three black puppies. Then, we see the meowing kitten being held up in a hand while adorable Yorkie Chloe jumps up, wagging her tail excitedly.
Next, Chloe is bathing the kitten with her tongue.
Finally, the kitten is back with the dozing puppies staying warm.
“My Yorkie had a kittie. She loves her so much,” the TikTok says. “4 puppies 1 kitty ♥️”
Yorkie Mom With a Kitten
Following the TikTok, some people didn’t seem to understand it was a joke. Strangely, people asked how a dog could give birth to a kitten. Also, one person wanted to know if the kitten would grow up to act like a puppy.
Others were concerned about the kitten, wanting to know how it was doing, especially after a later comment by Hernandez Vil:
“I don’t know if the kitty will make it through the night. She’s a bit less active this evening. Prayers 🙏🏻🙏🏻 I will update tomorrow.”
Fortunately, there were updates, and no worries, the kitten is reportedly doing fine.
How the Kitten and Yorkie Came Together
Hernandez Vil lives on a farm where feral cats are common, she says.One day, when going to the barn to get feed for the animals, a feral cat was there giving birth to one kitten. Unfortunately, it ran away, abandoning the solo kitten.
“Our kitten was the only one. He was still slimy,” Hernandez explained on the TikTok. “The cat saw our dog, and she ran away! We did leave the kitten for hours, but she did not come back. He was already very cold, so we decided to bring him in.”
Recently, Chloe, the 5-year-old Yorkie, gave birth to a litter of puppies. So, the family carefully introduced the kitten, hoping to keep it warm. Right away, the dog took in the kitten, but Hernandez Vil was bottle-feeding it with kitten formula.
“Since Chloe had just given birth, we gave it to her and she took him in right away as her own. She’s soo good! We were feeding him kitten formula from the beginning.”
Rather than nursing the kitten, the dog and puppies were helping to keep the kitten warm.
“He never even got a taste from the mom’s milk, so he was very weak. Chloe cleaned, kept warm, and love him for us.”
The Kitten’s Probable Father
In a follow-up post, Lucero shared a TikTok of a black cat on the farm who may be the kitten’s father.
Why the Kitten Went Away
Now, many people were insistent on updates about the kitten. In a comment on the growing puppies, Hernandez explained that the kitten is doing fine. However, she had to let someone else care for it. According to the post, Yorkie mama Chloe developed an infection, requiring her to bottle-feed the puppies. Thus, she needed to give up the kitten to someone who could devote their time to its care.
“The mama got an infection and fell ill, so I had to bottle feed the baby puppies.”
Later, Hernandez Vil even posted a TikTok of the kitten nursing from a bottle. Nevertheless, people keep asking about the kitten wanting more.
🐤 A Funny Follow-Up 🐤
After people thought a Yorkie could give birth to a kitten, (?) Hernandez posted a new tongue-in-cheek TikTok to keep them guessing. As you might suspect, some people seem to believe the chicken hatched ducklings. Or, maybe they’re just playing along? We hope so.
“My chicken gave birth to baby ducks.”
Right away, people were concerned for the ducklings, much like the kitten. But don’t worry; Hernandez Vil says she took them in herself soon after the interesting video. Shortly after, she showed the ducklings safe with a group of baby chickies. Everything is FINE.
