Hi all, I'd appreciate some advice or reassurance about our rescue cat that we have had for a year. She is usually very relaxed and sweet though has never liked much fussing or cuddles ever since we got her. I found i was pregnant early this year and she suddenly became very cuddly towards me, started coming in to sleep on my belly which made the baby kick and meowing around me, sleeping next to me for the last few months. It seems no one is sure whether cats can sense pregnancy but I'm sure she has done. The problem has been in the last week (now 38 weeks), when she has suddenly become very irritable. She makes sad noises when I try to pet her when she would normally cuddle in towards my hands, jumps off the bed or chair if i sit near her and has tried to scratch and bite me 4 times in the last 4 days! Can she sense the baby might be near with a change in hormones or something? She's eating fine, sleeping fine and not noticed any signs of illness and she seems fine with my hubby. We have a feliway diffuser in and I've been trying to play with her, give treats etc as much as i previously did as well. I had never had concerns about her around baby but now getting a bit worried. Thank you.
