Kitty Senses Baby Before He’s Born, Now They Are Inseparable

While there is no scientific explanation as to why animals like cats and dogs can pick up on pregnancy, there is a lot of buzz about what many cat and dog owners must have experienced first hand. One of them is the lady below who shared her pet kitty’s behavior while she carried her son to term.

The website Petful.com says that according to Dr. Raymond Van Lienden, DVM, of The Animal Clinic of Clifton, Va., “scents unique to pregnancy, although imperceptible to humans, can be detected by some animals — including cats.”

Panda is two and a half years old. Just look at the way she’s hugging her owner’s baby bump!

’’When I got pregnant, Panda started following me everywhere, laying her head on my belly, as if she wanted to keep the baby safe’’, – says Liel, Panda’s owner.

The cat guarded Liel’s baby like this for the whole nine months before he was born.

When the baby finally arrived, Panda recognized him as her little brother almost immediately. Now the cat always tries to lie next to the baby and keep guarding him. If he cries, Panda wakes Liel up late at night.

But Panda isn’t the only cat in the house who loves the family’s new baby boy. Sean has several furry friends who love and protect him.
