Sometimes life can imitate art in the most spectacular and unexpected ways.
It doesn’t happen too often though, so when it does those special moments definitely deserve all the attention possible.
For instance, there’s this incredible story about one cat who took her name Duchess to the next level and truly became her namesake from the classic Disney animated film, The Aristocats.
Shelby Sewell-Lopez of East Texas adopted the beautiful white-fur cat back in 2018.
According to Bored Panda, Sewell-Lopez dubbed the rescue cat Duchess, though her life was anything but glamorous at the time.
She was a frail cat with a hernia and just about every parasite possible.
“Through all of the rehabilitating, she kept her calm demeanor and a beautiful cat emerged,” Sewell-Lopez said.
“She is unbothered by everything except the vacuum cleaner!”
One day, after bringing Duchess home, her owner discovered the cat hiding in a closet.
At the time, Sewell-Lopez believed Duchess was in the company of a mouse.
However, she soon discovered her cat, who she once believed was spayed, had given birth to a baby kitten in that very closet.
In fact, Duchess proceeded to give birth to three more kittens.
First came Berlioz, that kitten who they initially believed to be a mouse.
Next was Marie, and then Toulouse.
For awhile, all was quiet and it seemed like Duchess was done, but that’s when kitten number four, or the “bonus kitten” came.
He was dubbed “Blue.”
Somehow, Marie, Toulouse, and Berlioz all bear striking similarities to their “Aristocats” counterparts.
They’re the exact same color and gender, so naturally Sewell-Lopez bestowed their respective names upon them in honor of the 1970 animated classic.
Because Blue is just so special, he earned his own name separate from “The Aristocats” cast roster.
