Worried about my cat(2 Posts)
Hi, just interested in some opinions regarding my cat.
I moved house (400 miles) 2 months ago.i lived with my parents and brother so my cat had lots of company.
1 week after I moved house I gave birth 7 weeks early. I was at home (just me and the cat who acted like.a midwife and was up on the bed as I was giving birth)
She was the pretty much abandoned for 48 hours as I was bundled off to hospital. Boyfriend popped home to feed her but then was back at the hospital.
She then had 4 weeks of seeing my boyfriend and I briefly as we were back and forth to the hospital 3 times a day.
2 weeks ago baby came home and now I'm worried she feels left out after being 'only child' to fuss over. I try and give her a lit of attention but I'm worried she'll start to resent the baby. She hasn't been too bothered by him do far. Kept out of the way the first couple if days as she didnt have a clue what he was or what the noise was. Now she peers into the Moses basket every do often and that's it.
I'm a couple of weeks I need to travel home to visit my dad who is very poorly in hospital. I'm now worried about leaving the cat. My boyfriends uncle will come in twice a day but I don't want to leave get locked in the house or outside all day. She's used to bring able to come on and out. It'd s rented house so no cat flat.
Will she be ok? Do cats pick up on all of these things?
Cats are great pragmatists and most times adapt pretty well to changing circumstances. It sounds to me as if she's coping just fine at the moment and dealing well with the baby.
Have you got a tray that she can use if she's inside? If she might have to use one while your boyfriend's uncle is looking after her then it might be a good idea to get her used to it now.
Congratulations on the new baby !
