Shocked!

post #1 of 5

I have just been bitten (not very hard) by my pregnant cat!
She has never bitten me before I am devastated.I have to admit I was stroking her tummy gently to see if I could feel the kittens and that's when she bit me.Is this normal in pregnant cats?

This is probably "overstimulation biting." Pretty common in female cats. And yes, being pregnant is probably a factor.

2 of my boys will give me a nip if I stroke their stomachs for a while, add to that a pregnant cat is likely to be 'hormonal' and may be a bit uncomfortable if she is well into her pregnancy. I wouldn't worry about it too much

Thanks,at least I know to leave her tum alone from now on lol
She has been very loving with me since the bite,so it's safe to say she is my friend again

Lucia gave me a few nips when I tried to feel her stomach. She was grouchy sometimes. But now she is fine. I think pregnant cats are little more sensitive to stimulation.
