    Animals Cat gives birth in tumble dryer

      A stray cat has given birth in a tumble dryer.

      Patrick Ambrose from Erdington, Birmingham had taken in the expecting cat after he found her wandering around in his garden.

      He was going to put a load into his dryer when he found the cat in there, snuggled up with her newborn litter.

      The cat had made herself comfortable in the warm, dry place and lay with her new family on a towel that had been left in the machine.

      Before the birth, Mr Ambrose had set up a cardboard box in his conservatory for the mother to deliver her kittens in, but returned home from work last Tuesday (June 12) to find the new family in his dryer.

      Mr Ambrose has decided to name the new kittens after tumble dryer brands, using the names Whirlpool, Bosch, Hotpoint, Zanussi and Beko. He plans to have them rehomed but will continue to look after the mother, who has lived with him for years.

      Patrick says of the new arrivals: "I am so glad I have been able to help because they would not have survived if they were left as strays. It's obvious someone previously had the mum as a pet because she had been well looked after. I hope people will take them on."
