Whelp, the joke was on us.
Our sweet Mama cat was a neutered male.
What seemed like an awkward baby belly was primordial pouch.
I tried Facebook again to find his owners, but at 5 pm he will be headed to the cat sanctuary.
But that cat looked like Mama.
Explains why it acted differently toward us than in our past experiences.
And the cat was sent off in our biggest cat carrier so now we don’t have enough for all our pets should we have to transport everyone.
So Mama did not get surgery today.
