might seem like a really daft question but ive two cats-an 8 year old and a one year old.
the youngest cat has always been really "needy",liking lots of fuss and cuddles and permanently glued to my lap but our first baby is due next week and im sure she knows and is already feeling put out.
she spends her day either hiding under a tablecloth completely covered so we cant see her,or in our back room asleep on the sofa which she never used to go on.its like she doesnt even want to be in the same room as us.
just wondered if anyone else had encountered this before.
Our cat had never ever bought home mice or birds etc but when I was 9 months pregnant with DS, the cat turned up at the back door with mice and birds for 4 days on the trot. On the fifth day, I gave birth!!
Our vet reckons it was because the cat knew there was going to be another mouth to feed.
My cat's the opposite of yours - the only time she wants to sit on my lap is when she's got cold or wet feet! She didn't change while I was pregnant, but when I went into labour she was a nightmare on the day - wouldn't leave me alone at all! This happened with both labours - I learned the lesson the first time and got really nervous the second time she started!
