Cats are sensitive animals and they can pick up on the pheromones your body produces during pregnancy. Many woman have noticed their furry baby begin to act different as the pregnancy progresses. Some cats become more affectionate toward the expecting mother, or they act less rambunctious than normal.
So, can I have a cat while pregnant?
Is it true that pregnant women should avoid cats? It's perfectly fine to be around cats when you're pregnant, but you do need to be very careful about cleaning the litter box. That's because cat feces (and soil or sand where cats have been) can carry a parasitic infection called toxoplasmosis.
Can cats sense people's emotions?
Galvan and Vonk's finding suggests that cats are more in tune with human emotions than we thought. That does not mean they feel empathy. Still, even if cats do not truly understand our moods, the study still suggests that they can pick up on surprisingly nuanced human gestures.
How long is a cat's pregnancy?
58 – 67 days
