My new kitty from the SPCA had not been spayed yet but the shelter people thought perhaps she was pregnant, because she had a tight round tummy and was sleeping a lot. We had her at the vet and he discovered in fact she had pyometra - basically pus in her uterus, which happens only to un-spayed cats and can become very serious. Another excellent reason to have your cat spayed, even if she is going to be an indoor cat.
Fortunately she had no serious symptoms such as fever, vomiting or diarrhea. The vet did the spay surgery which removes the infection, and she has to take antibiotics for a week or so. She'll be fine, but it's scary to think what might have happened if we had decided to leave her over the holidays. www.eastpaddenanimalhospital.com/cat_felin
It may seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first.
Laughing 100 times is the equivalent to 10 minutes on the rowing machine or 15 minutes on an exercise bike!
