    I’m a fosterer for a rescue and have started looking after a female cat who has been living in someone’s garden for the last 6 months. They don’t know if she has been neutered. She is very round so I’m going to ask the vet to check if she’s pregnant at her initial vet check up.

    I’ve had a look at her nipples and they don’t look obviously pink. One seemed very flat but another looked rounder. I’ve read that they don’t always pink up. Is that right? She’s a gorgeous cuddly cat so if she’s not pregnant I’m sure we will find her a lovely home very soon.

    What a pretty girl! Her nipples look normal to me, however if she is round and has been living rough it's possible she is pregnant. Please keep us posted!

    I will do. We see the vet tomorrow. Hopefully she isn’t pregnant and we can get her neutered and start to find her a new home.

    Those do not look like the nipples of a pregnant cat, and if she's round enough for you to notice I'd expect them to be much larger than this.

    However a check won't go amiss as she could have a worm burden, something else afoot or simply be rather pudgy.

    If she isn't pregnant, vets can check for a spay scar.
