A cat has given birth to kittens inside a rotating tumble dryer.

The cat's owner Patrick Ambrose, 44, was pleasantly surprised to discover five unexpected additions inside his dryer when he came back home from work last week.

Electrical engineer Patrick said: "It was warm and dark in there and she had made herself comfortable on a towel that was in there. Cats are said to have a sixth sense so she obviously felt at home in my house."

As they were birthed in a tumble dryer, he plans to name the five kittens Whirlpool, Bosch, Hotpoint, Zanussi and Beko - after famous tumble dryer brands.

"She's been with me for years and has gone blind, but she doesn't seem to have a problem with the new arrivals," he said.

"I am so glad I have been able to help because they would not have survived if they were left as strays. It's obvious someone previously had the mum as a pet because she had been well looked after. I hope people will take them on."

Patrick said he would continue to look after the cat mother, Yahoo! reports.

Cats Protection volunteer Shaki McFarland said: "She was huge. She looked like she had swallowed two rugby balls. It's not the safest place but luckily they were all okay. We will arrange to have the mother spayed and we'll get the kittens immunised before we try to find them a home."
