pregnant cat behavior

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Our rescue saved a pregnant female on her euthanization date. (As an aside - they won't give her to us like that. Spay/abortion on Tuesday. )

She was overzealously friendly and affectionate when I sent to assess her. I has been suggested to me that after her hormones calm down, she might not be such a lovey-girl. Obviously, we took her anyway, but I'd like to get some insight on what we might be able to expect from her.

She was a "barn cat" when she came into the pound, dumped there with a bunch of other outside cats from the same location. But to me, barn cat doesn't necessarily mean she's not a sweet girl. Sometimes I have found that means "forced to live outside."

The pregnant stray I took in was extremely sweet and loving and gave birth 5weeks ago, she continues to be just as sweet and loving as she was 8 weeks ago when she first was brought home.

I don't know any back story on her obviously but I have every intention of trying to find her an indoor home. She has no litter box issues etc. I will tell any adopter if it doesn't work then she can be returned to me and will live out her life as a well spoiled outdoor cat here.

Yes, they can be extra friendly when high pregnant. But some of it will surely be left even if she is really a very shy cat - she recognizes you as the friendly person she met.
Besides, her recovalenscent time with you will also help a little...

Anyway, a very friendly cat or a shy cat - you have excellent chances of having a good fury friend. It takes longer with the shy, but the reward is bigger.


Congrats!

I do not disagree with you. Even with shy cats, the sweetness can come through very clear. I felt like she wanted to climb inside my skin to get attention.. that is how much she wanted me to pet her, etc.

I find that post spay/abortion they want a lot of attention. Some cats will cling to you in place of their lost kittens. Others don't realize that they've lost anything. PG, one of our feral turned adoptable just had a spay/abortion last week, she has proved so friendly during recoup that she's earned a spot in the adoption center at Petsmart!

Every cat is different, and will also react to the kind of care you give her. You'll do fine.

I don't know how far along Fisher is. AC told me that when she was dropped off she wasn't showing... but in the nearly two weeks she was there she started to "blossom." Her sides were starting to bulge out and her nips were pink and enlarged. She is a little cat, too. I'm no expert, but I could tell by looking at her that she was preg. She will get lots of TLC!!! She is actually going to a foster home with a very loving person.

I've seen feral cats get more friendly while highly pregnant, but I've never seen one get loving to me. If she is as loving as you say, then chances are that she will still be at least friendly post spay.

Good luck with this girl!
