The Primordial Pouch

The Primordial Pouch by Ceri Bladen

The primordial pouch is a saggy layer of skin (typically covered in fur) found on cats’ bellies. It is located along the length of the stomach but tends to be most noticeable closer to the back legs.

All felines have this abdominal flap, although it is more prominent in some breeds of cat. It can be more pronounced in older cats or formerly overweight ones. Big cats, such as lions and tigers, also have a primordial pouch. It is more common for male cats to have one.
