Said the night wind to the little lamb, “Do you see what I see? Do you see what I see? A bowl, a bowl, shining in the sun, it will bring us a kit-ten.” Wait. That can’t be right, can it? But MckMama said so on the internet so it must be true. She even showed us photos of the x-rays showing one kitten. Right?
Or did she?
It would appear to our untrained eyes that Kitty Cone is going to give birth to a fruit bowl any day now. Minutes from now. Seconds from now. Here is an image that has had the contrast taken out, the noise removed and the highlights sharpened using iPhoto.
Maybe our eyes are fooling us, but they aren’t fooling an honest to goodness veterinarian.
“A follow-up comment from my IRL veterinarian friend:
The 2 lines look like scratches on the film (where the emulsion got scratched off). Not sure what the white blob is–it looks like an artifact–as if they laid the cat on top of some rocks before x-raying her.
While it is true that when there is one baby, they often are large and may need a C-section, there’s no baby that I can see–certainly not the blob and 2 scratches on the film.”
A huge thank you to reader Jennifur for seeing the fruit bowl in the first place. Another huge thank you to reader MaryBeth for contacting her vet to look at the x-rays. More thanks go to Coco for showing us what to look at using iPhoto. Rocking readers have we! Thanks, ladies!
