SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Humane Society announced that its kitten nursery is currently looking after a cat with a litter of kittens that is more than double the average litter size of three to five kittens.
The unnamed cat in the kitten nursery gave birth to 11 kittens and also has 11 nipples, more than the six to eight found on an average cat.
A resident found the mother and her kittens in a dumpster downtown and promptly brought them to the humane society. The mother cat and her kittens are all in good health.
The mother and kittens will remain in the nursery until the kittens are ready to be adopted and the mother can be spayed.
