Ten Kitties: Pregnant kitty


The pregnant kitty is one of the most common Jakarta cats. I always feel bad for them - it can't be easy supporting kittens in addition to supporting themselves.

We heard an interesting theory the other night that the short and kinked tails on so many cats here are due to maternal malnutrition. That sounded pretty plausible, but then I decided it was TOO plausible, in an urban-legendish way. And then I couldn't remember whether the places where the cats looked fatter - Bali, the Mentawais - had as many kinked tails or not.

That's as far as I got in my analysis, so until someone gets a federal grant to research this, I'll have to leave it there.

This is the tenth of our Ten Kitties, but somehow I have a feeling there will be more cat pics as we go along ...
