New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: In one of the most bizarre stories posted online, a man on Reddit explained how he holds his cat to be responsible for his wife’s pregnancy. The man in his tale wrote that despite the couple’s decision of not getting another child, their ginger cat Tom’s ‘evil genius’ plan landed his wife getting pregnant as his cat poked holes in condoms before they used it.

We all have our different set of stories and embarrassing experiences caused due to the mischievousness and crazy acts by our pets. But this one right here has stolen the name for being the most bizarre of them all. Recently, the thread on Reddit by this man who is now ready to welcome his second child because of his ‘cat’s mistake’ has garnered many reactions online. The post went viral soon with over 26,000 upvotes.


Starting from telling how the couple didn’t wish to get a second child until the pandemic was over as they were already parents to a baby boy and the wife was recovering from a stressful pregnancy due to preeclampsia, the man narrated that his cat Tom, who has a knack of getting into drawers and cabinets would usually leave cabinet doors in kitchen wide open.

“It’s so bad that for weeks after adopting him I thought there was a poltergeist in the house because each morning I’d wake up to find every single cabinet door in the kitchen wide open!” Playtonic1 wrote on Reddit.


Revealing how this habit of his pet landed him to trouble, the Reddit user wrote, "My first f*** up was storing the condoms in the same drawer as the Q-tips, which he loves to get into and shred apart.”

“He must have seen the box of Q-tips in the drawer when I put my rubbers away, because not even an hour later I stumbled upon a horrific scene of chewed plastic straws, shredded cotton fluff and shiny gold condom wrappers scattered around the gapping drawer that once contained them,” he added.

Encountering this shocking incident at home, the man explained that he cleaned up everything and destroyed the Q-tips. As for the condoms that were spilled everywhere, he had just put them back into the box without checking them, and eventually, he went on to use the condoms 'thinking nothing of what happened earlier'.

It was later revealed after three weeks when his wife started showing symptoms of pregnancy, that the couple realised what could have gone wrong.

The pregnancy test came positive and left the couple puzzled as the man recalled Tom getting into the drawer.

“I ran over to the bathroom drawer where I kept the condoms, dumped out the box on the counter and started to inspect each miserable little foil square. “Sure enough, several had noticeable scratches, teeth marks, and even full-blown punctures in them...” he then concluded.

As bizarre as this sounds, this story of a cat getting his owner into trouble like this is one of its kind and has left tickling our funny bones.
