One of my medically-inclined friends came to visit this past weekend, and while we discussed my darling Annie’s chubs, she noted a very interesting possibility that I had never considered: did Annie maybe have kittens before?
The thought of Annie with kittens blew me away! I adopted her as an adult cat, and she was already spayed – so I never entertained the idea. But my friend said the way her tummy looked indicated she may have been pregnant at one point, and since I know nothing about her pre-adoption days, it is certainly possible! She may have been spayed later, or by the shelter.
Now, I just look at my little cublet with this new found awe. Thinking of her as a mama cat just melts my little heart!
