Grandpa Keeps Secret From Wife Hidden Behind Shed. Granddaughter Finds It - And Goes Instantly Viral

An adorable older man named Jimmy has a big secret that he's been keeping from his wife for weeks. Unfortunately for Jimmy, his secret was recently exposed by his teenage granddaughter.
Everyone in his family knows that Jimmy has a fondness for cats! So, when a pregnant mother cat wandered into his backyard, he begged his wife to let her stay....
Not a fan of cats herself, Jimmy's wife shook her head and said he needed to get the her out of their home. But Jimmy had a different plan!
Instead of booting the pregnant momma cat from their backyard, he built her a little shelter in his tool shed and allowed her to have her kittens in peace. When Jimmy's granddaughter, Syl, came over for a visit, he snuck her out to the shed and shared his secret!
Syl wrote on her Twitter page:
"My grandpa let a stray cat have her kittens in his tool shed and now he's raising a bunch of cats behind my grandma's back because she said no."
The look on her grandfather's face was pure joy!
In an interview with The Dodo, Syl spoke about her grandfather's love for stray animals. Apparently this isn't the first time he's cared for them!
"My grandpa felt for the stray cats and would leave food in the back of the house near his tool shed, a spot where my grandma doesn't go.
This particular cat was especially friendly and got attached to my grandpa."
We totally get it! How could you turn away an adorable little face like this?
Jimmy may be in the doghouse with his wife, but at least his kittens are safe in the shed!
