Same here. :lol: I do not know if it is normal for kittens to have that anomoly although I believe BSH can sometimes get it..I'm sure one of those breeders can answer you better. Penny :D

took my queen and her kittens for a vet health check today as i was slightly worried about their hanging tummies.
of course the vet laughed and didnt charge me :D they are just chubby babies each weighing at 4 weeks old 1kg. ( yes i have written this right a massive 1kg.) greedy little monkeys. :lol:

I had this with a british kitten last year. She had her checks at vet and all was normal. Her owner also had her checked but her vet said it was fine just lose skin
