One day Belle notices that her Pearl is having a hard time climbing trees, eating twice as she used to, sleeps a lot and hungry most of the time – Pearl became pregnant. Then, the awaited day arrives and a second kitten came to the world. But soon, many more days like this one come, and the house gets filled with kittens – a troublesome situation which should be quickly resolved.
