When I came home from school last week this beautiful fluffy cat came up to me. I live on a farm off a busy road so I assumed, just as my other cat, she was dumped off. I looked at her and said to her,"Would you like to come inside?" opening the door. To my suprise she walked right in. After she had eatin I noticed she was very big in the belly. At that moment I knew she was going to be a mommy. She lays around the house all day, loves to have her belly rubbed, and likes sleeping in dark places. She does not care for my other cat who is only about 9 months old, she was hissing at him but has stopped in the last few days. I have prepared a soft lining in a cardboard box for her but she refuses to lay in it. I have placed soft towels in all the areas she likes to lay but will not lay on them. I know she will need a place to have her babies but what im afraid of is she will feel threatened by my kitten. I have heard mommy cats will eat their babies, Will she eat her babies? How am I supposed to keep her happy till she has her babies? I failed to mention wherever she came from took very good care of her. Her claws have been clipped so they are dull, and she has no feas. I have asked my neighbors( though they are farther away out here in the country) if they lost a cat, they said no. Please give me some pointers.
