Hi! I'm a little concerned. Reyah was released to the shelter at the end of March and had kittens. The day after she gave birth, my friend took her and the kittens home with her. Since then, Reyah has only been at the shelter for 4 days and that was because my friend was either out of town or had relatives in (can't remember for sure now). Well, I've noticed over the past week that Reyah's stomach keeps getting larger. My friend saw her on Sunday and then again yesterday. I told her that if I didn't know any better that I would swear that she was pregnant. Well, she agreed. She said that she can't figure out how in the world she could be, but her stomach sure looks like it. Poor girl looks like she's swallowed a Cantaloupe. The problem is that I have an appointment to take her and Hera on Tuesday to get them spayed. What do you suggest I do? Will they have to do an ultrasound to find out? I've tried feeling and I don't feel any kittens moving around, so I don't know, but I tell you, she looks like she sure is. What's the best thing to do at this point or any way that I can find out? She's been extremely motherly to Athena (the bottle-fed kitten)...more so in the past 2 days than since we brought Athena here (last Sunday). I pray that she isn't pregnant, because she just got over having a litter and she doesn't need this, we sure couldn't keep them, plus our shelter is so overrun with cats that they're having to rig up cages just to have a place to put them all. I'm open to opinions and advice. Thanks!
