  • not mine,but one of my cats always knows when i am really sad or really sick and not feeling well.he always comes up to me and cuddles and he can go a couple days without cuddling under normal circumstances. he notices if i cry too and my other cats dont.when i was in early labor laying on my bed in pain he came to cuddle that is how i knew it was really happening

  • I think they know. I got a kitten while I was 7 months pregnant. She used to fight with my stomach lol. She would be asleep on my stomach and the baby would kick, and she'd start pouncing me. It was so cute. Now that I'm in early stages of labor she just lays on me ALOT more, like she knows that something is going on. And she doesn't attack anymore when the baby kicks her the butt

  • Cats are so smart and wise!! They so get me! My Cat can tell when I am getting a migraine! My little grandson isn't quite 2. He was sad & crying. And my DD has a cat that got injured. He has a hard time walking. But he ran over to the little one and was on the floor next to him trying to cheer him up! I thought that was heart warming! Cats can be so loving & thoughtful! Mine never leave me alone when I'm ill or down with a migraine! When I had a concussion & skull fracture. My cat never left my side. She lightly gently nipped my nose to not let me fall asleep! Meanwhile DH only checked on me when the GB Packer's lost control of the 'ball!!

  • I think they do. My cat would always nap with me and cuddle next to me when i was pregnant.. perhaps its just because of how warm and cozy the tummy's get...
