More bad luck & a fat cat

Our car is officially wrecked. We struggled to pay for the yearly MOT on the car last week. We paid out £300 on fixing things to pass it, then the next day one of the back wheels fell off while Pete was driving it! Our mechanic just called me to tell me we need a whole new back axle, which will cost hundreds, and we may as well scrap it. Looks like that loan money will be going on a new car rather than the wedding!

I'm getting a funny feeling that Isla may be pregnant. She is eating stacks of food, she begs for more at least 5/6 times a day. I thought it might be worms, but if that were the case she wouldn't be getting fat and her coat looks glorious at the moment. She'd still look all rangy and dirty like she did when she moved in. She won't let me feel her tummy. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if she gets fatter. If she does have kittens, she'll be straight down the vets getting spayed after. She seems to have got much bigger just this week.
If she is she'll have them sometime between now and January, because of course we have no idea when she got pregnant!
Here are two comparison pics. I'm not sure you can tell from the photographs, but you definitely can in person.

You'll soon know for sure - the area in front of the back legs will start to bulge out regardless of how she sits, stands and lays. The one where she is laying down DOES look a bit preggers to me...

And you're right, she's in excellent condition and seems very content.

If she keeps on eating like this I'll need to take out a loan!

Do you want a kitten! ;) Hehehe!

I'll take a kitten if you take my five cats ;)

FIVE cats Dan? Are you a lesbian or a lonely old spinster perchance?
