I know it's not unusual for family cats to do this, but the cats I've seen give birth are all foster cats/strays!, with the exception of my very first preggo mom who we adopted from the pound. We only had her 4 weeks before she delivered.
I think my most current foster waited for me too! I was on TCS until after 3 in the morning and had been checking on her all day. It wasnt until 1/2 hour after I went to bed that she decided to have her kittens.
And the foster before her actually went out of labor when I left the room. I had to sit with her another 2 hours before she decided to start again.
It's weird but not...
and kind of endearing
I like that they trust me enough to want my companionship.
