Some people are cat people, some people are dog people, and some are just animal people and love all of the furry little pets. Some owners take this to the extreme and no longer refer to themselves as the owners but rather the “pet parents” of their little furry bundle of joy. One couple recently picked out their first cat, and they decided to celebrate in a hilarious way!
Lucy and Steven recently adopted their first pet together and became “pet parents” for the very first time. They came up with an amazing idea while thinking about ways to tell their friends about the new addition to their family.
Only people who are truly fans of all animals would be able to understand and appreciate what happened next. The couple proceeded to hire a professional photographer to take their brilliant plan to fruition! But it turned out even better than their wildest dreams.
Lucy and Steven hired a professional to take “newborn” pictures of them holding their little five-month-old furball. They shared a few hilarious shots along with a sweet note to Facebook. They could never have predicted what happened next.
“On 1/10/18, we welcome our first baby kitten, a neutered male DLH. He is 2″ long and weighed 6 pounds 7 oz,” they wrote. “He is already eating solid food. Name to be announced. We are so in love <3. Thank you @Elizabeth.WoodsDarby for capturing these amazing first moments!!”
The pictures ranged from traditional images of her holding the “baby,” to a more risque shot of the kitty popping out like she was actually giving birth.
The internet took the pictures and ran with them, as it tends to do. They went viral almost immediately and garnered a range of reactions. Many people became huge fans and loved the humor, while others were freaked out by the hilarious photoshoot.
“So I’ve been thinking of this idea for a while because I’m totally a crazy cat lady who didn’t have any cats,” Shultz told 9News. “So, I decided as soon as I got a cat, it’s a big milestone for me and sort of like the hallmark of me settling down and starting my menagerie of future cats, and so the first one is pretty special.”
Those people are probably a bit too uptight, considering this cute couple was just trying to have some fun. People online often try to find a way to be critical of just about everything, so it’s really no surprise.
“Does anyone have work anymore? This is strange af. Poor cat,” wrote Morgan Taylor.
“This is hilarious!!! I hope they are half joking, but oh my goodness, the kitten is cute!” added Karin Becton.
“I can’t believe we missed the opportunity to do this with Dakota! Let’s do it now!” Tabby Brennan commented.
The most important thing of all is that these new pet parents are loving their kitty with all their heart. We’re happy to report that Steven and Lucy are absolutely knocking it out of the park. Their home is filled with love and happiness 24/7.
