The gift of life is one that will forever fascinate us and hold our attention — it’s why live videos of animal births are so popular! So it comes as no surprise that the video you’re about to watch has garnered over 6 million views on YouTube!
Olga Ogurtova, who lives in Russia, filmed a very special moment in 2013.
Her cat, who was pregnant at the time, had begun to breathe rapidly, her swollen stomach rising and falling with each breath.
That was when she knew: Her cat was about to give birth!
She whipped out her camera to capture the magical moment, but also to comfort her cat and be near if she needed help.
It’s amazing how alike humans and animals are when you take a step back and set aside their differences!
In the video, the cat meows and breathes loudly and quickly. She walks around her bed, anxious and undoubtedly trying to find the best position in which to give birth.
There’s a point in the video where the cat is laying on her side, and Olga reaches over to caress her face, almost as if to say, “C’mon, you can do this!”
And after it was all said and done, you are left with the miracle of birth, and the budding relationship between a mama cat and her kitten.
