    eeny has been acting strange today looking aroung and spending time in her box thats in my wardrobe. she is laid on my bed with me now and her tummy keeps going really hard then relaxes again, i was just wondering if anyone could tell me if they know whether cats have braxton hicks type contractions leading up to the birth like humans do??

    shes got 2 boxes in here, one in a corner, and one inside my wardrobe that she was scratching around in earlier. ive brought a litter tray up here for her and food and water so she doesnt have to go far for anything. ooh isnt the waiting game fun lol :smilewinkgrin:
