Another Young Sheldon plot hole has been found in The Big Bang Theory and I’m rattled

The world of sitcoms is filled with intricacies, and the continuity between spin-offs and their originals is often scrutinized by passionate fans. 'The Big Bang Theory,' a show that garnered a massive following over its 12-season run, is no stranger to this scrutiny, especially now with the conclusion of its prequel series 'Young Sheldon.'

When 'Young Sheldon' aired its series finale, it was just a matter of time before fans began to dissect every detail of Sheldon Cooper's life.

However, a peculiar detail, or the lack thereof, has recently agitated the fanbase—a missing narrative involving a cat. Sheldon, in 'The Big Bang Theory,' made an interesting comment about a childhood incident involving a cat, but this specific anecdote was never once mentioned in 'Young Sheldon.' 

Sheldon mentions on the Big Bang Theory that a Montgomery Ward delivery van ran over the Cooper family cat, Lucky.

  An ironic name for the feline, considering how unlucky its sad ending was.   But fans on Reddit are less concerned about Lucky’s demise than they are the plot hole this revealed from Young Sheldon – because now the prequel series is well and truly wrapped, there was no cat.And whilst it might be the case that this horrible accident happened before Young Sheldon ever happened – which is likely the answer to the plot hole – I do think it’s a bit weird that it was never mentioned on the show.

 You’d think someone might sadly bring up whatever happened to Lucky at SOME point?

Fans also pointed out that Sheldon talked about a dog they had too on The Big Bang Theory, but on Young Sheldon it was never mentioned either.  Surely that poor family didn’t go through two tragic pet losses all before the show started!?  That were just never mentioned or referred to again?

One fan on Reddit simply explains that look, the shows had different writers.  And perhaps they didn’t actually care about continuity.  If that’s the case, then fair play – but it seems a it questionable to me that someone with a memory and the knowledge Sheldon has would never mention it
