    Cats losing hair and then gaining after nursing

    I just noticed that my cat who had lost all her hair (belly area) when feeding her kittens has grown nearly all if it back very quickly. Its only been 1.5 weeks since the kittens have been gone. Does any one know the physiological hormones/chemicals involved here? I know it wont be exactly the same in humans but nevertheless it could be an interesting find.

    Re: Cats losing hair and then gaining after nursing

    Nearly forgot i posted this (must be the fin)

    Anyway, so my cat is now fluffy like hell and one month ago she had no hair on her belly while she was feeding her kittens. Again, does anyone know which hormones/chemicals are involved here? Can't find anything on the internet....
