Hey guys,

This week’s Dark Side of Gaming episode is an inside look to the shadier dealings of Rockstar games, and – as always – I hope you enjoy! The Dark Side of YouTube will be out with a new episode in just a few days as well so be sure to keep an eye open!

The Backroads sequel will also be finished in the next day or so, but while we’re here – I would like to share something strange that happened last week. It’s been far too long since I shared life stuff with you guys, and while this one isn’t filled with drama – it’s seriously weird as hell. If you’re a cat person – please, read this and tell me if you’ve ever experienced a similar situation.

For those who may not be aware, we currently have 19 cats due to living in an area where people abandon them— which is a whole thing unto itself but not today’s focus.

Despite having cats my entire life – only recently did I learn about “interrupted labor.” Apparently cats are able to hit a pause button when giving birth if they need to relocate to a safer space or something to that effect.

I learned this because four months ago, Tsu gave birth to three kittens. Then, after a full day passed, she had one more. Needless to say, it was a surprise to find four in the nest that morning, but whatever. It happened.

Tsu never really lost pregnancy weight. We thought it was strange, but she was happy, seemed healthy, and we planned to ask the vet about it when we took her to get spayed. Of course, that kept getting put on the back burner due to a kitten with pneumonia and Romulus’ emergency surgery.

Now, that litter of kittens was four months old on July 23, 2022. Today, they are happy, healthy, hyperactive little girls, and this should be the end of the story… But it’s not. Because it never is.

I woke on the morning of August 3rd to find a (roughly) week old kitten in the middle of our living room floor. Tsu has NOT been outside since giving birth and EVERY male is neutered. There was a second kitten under the couch. Their eyes are open which makes me think they’re at least 1-2 weeks old.

They appear to be completely healthy, but all of this means they were in the womb for 6 months!! How is that possible?! It’s like the universe literally said, “holy crap no one has abandoned a cat here in months! We better do something drastic!” Has anyone else heard of a 4 month interrupted labor?!

Here they are! Missy (black) has a forever home as soon as she’s old enough to leave mommy, and Ezio has already dug his claws deep into my soul.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your weeks!!
