Hi this is Dr. Gabby. Is she spayed?
And was she in heat recently like a month or two ago?
Ok she is having a false pregnancy. So because of the fluctuation in hormone levels her body, and mind, think she is pregnant even though she is not.
She is carrying her toy like it is a puppy.
It also makes them anxious and they whine a lot.
It lasts about 2 weeks.
If she is really anxious you can take her to the vet and they can prescribe a tranquilizer.
It is not harmful but is annoying.
You probably want to get her spayed after this because it can happen on every heat cycle so it can happen every 6 months.
It does not cause pain. Were you able to read what I wrote about about false pregnancy?
It is very common. You can read more about it here if you want to false pregnancy
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
