Mothering instinct

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone just thought i would share this with you as it has mad me giggle. Since Smudge had her babies on tuesday her mothering instinct has been very strong but not just towards her kittens. She has started to round up my children (aged 1 and 3) and will try to take care of them, it's very sweeet. Every time the youngest cries Smudge abandons her baby and comes running meowing and getting guite stressed at times. She will sit by my feet and lick my son or rub herself against him trying to make him stop crying. Once he's stops she looks at me as if to say How dare you upset him and then runs of back to her babies. It's so funny to watch.

Oh my gosh, Butterball did that with my daughter the few days leading up to her giving birth. If Amber would scream (just from seeing something on tv or when she was playing) Butterball would come running at top speed and start to rub up against her and lick her. I knew that her babies had to be coming soon with this behavior.

That's sweet. One of my boys (Beandip) has a very strong motherly instinct. One example is Precious - she has a heart problem, so sometimes she gets short of breath and coughs. When it happens, Beandip comes running to check on her and lick her head. It's very cute.
