Family Buys an Old Farm, Finds Out It’s Already Home to at Least 20 Cats

When you buy a property, you never know what you are getting yourself into until you actually move there. Regardless of how many times you visit beforehand and the information you get from the real estate agent, there will always be something that will surprise you, as TikTok user Helaine Hindley found out.

Hindley and her husband recently purchased an old farm they wanted to fix up. They were told that they could expect “some barn cats,” but no one could prepare them for what they found out once they started conducting a thorough inspection of the property. It turned out that “some barn cats” were actually more than 20 orange cats who already called the farm their home.

In a viral video shared on TikTok, Hindley documented her discovery of several cat litters and a number of adult cats.

While Hindley was caught by surprise, TikTok users were delighted by her discovery.

“Congratulations on your orange cat farm,” one person wrote in the comments section.

“Cat distribution system was in overdrive,” another added.

Hindley later shared several follow-up videos in which she revealed that there are 21 cats on the farm while suspecting there might be more in the field. She brought all the cats she could find to the vet for an exam, and it appears that Hindley and her family have fully accepted their new roommates.
