Cat Knows I'm Pregnant?

I took a positive hpt about a week ago, I haven't even been to the doctor yet. My cat is my baby and she is spoiled might I add. She is now very, very affectionate. All she wants to do is curl up in my lap in positions that are as awkward as possible. While in my lap she just cry, crys, looks up at me--and crys. Lol I think its cute/funny. Is it possible she knows I'm pregnant or is she just feeling sweet? Also she wants to sleep near me every single night and usually she could care less.

  • Lol. She going on 3 years in August. Usually when she goes into heat she doesn't want to be touched. And she just rolls on the floor and cries. Lol even now she's in my lap sleeping. I find it adorable! Lol

  • awww probably not. it will be an adjustment certainly. is she clawed? that would be my only real concern. she might accidentally scratch a baby or infant not meaning too. i suggest that once the baby is born, that you keep her seperated for a few days and only let her around the room with the baby when you are present. have her sleep say in the bathroom or another room you can close the door and keep her in at night. but give her a baby blanket that the baby has slept in. let her get used to the baby's scent. it will be less scary for the kitty then.
    My cats were very curious, but mostly left my youngest alone. as he got older they learned to stay out of arms reach. the only weird thing is that cats like milk be it breast of formula. so dont be surprised if you catch your cat licking your babys face LOL

  • My Luna is also very cuddly and needy now and has been since Christmas (I'm 28 weeks) she used to be very independent and now I can't keep her out of my bed no matter what I do! I've had to set a few people straight who've told me, "You have to get rid of her when the baby comes." Get "rid" of her?! Like she's chicken gone bad, ugh!

  • Anonymous if I said she's spoiled then obviously she doesn't need attention. Cats don't get spoiled by you not giving them attention.

  • why would someone have to get rid of thier cat cause of a baby? LOL unless someone owns a very aggresive unfriendly cat, there is no reason to have to get rid of a beloved pet when a baby comes unless of course the baby has severe allergies or something.
