    :wacko:

    My kitty had been a little cow for ages!!!

    Its like she refuses to shit and piss in her tray now ... well she does but then we keep finding naughty spots so I'm stupidly maybe thinking shes sensing something & needs to be bought a naughty chair? lol!!

    Seriously though I don't get it if it carries on as much as it will break my heart she can't stay!!

    Yes they can usually sense that something is not 'quite right' and may act differently.

    My dogs don't seem to have a clue, they still jump all over me and misbehave when on walks. They never notice when I'm not well either. Maybe they're just thick lol.

    Yeah I think so Wobbles!

    No loo problems so far lol

    Its really annoying we first thought she seemed to do it when she was frisky lol but she did it again and its like WTF ... I just can't have her if shes going to keep it up even if it is now and then. Never had a problem with her before.

    Ewww I can see why you're fed up with it Wobbs, it used to drive me mad when my yorkie Charlie pooed and peed everytime we went out, bought him a cage in the end. Rosie my other yorkie used to sit on my bump when I was pregnant with Ella and even perched up top when I was having contractions. I miss her :( I had to get rid of my dogs when Ella got to about 10 months old as they both tried to nip her, it was better for them and us. They gets loads more attention now (Charlie is with Mil and Rosie with my sister).

    Apparently it's dogs that get over protective and cats that get hurt by the experience and feel rejected bless them!

    My cat didn't like me too much when I was pregnant, but as soon as Bethanie was born she was fine, so try to stick with it as much as possible and give as much attention as you can! don't know if your cat is like mine, but any time I went to cuddle her, she would attack me lol.

    Timid cat - if someone comes to the house she runs and hides that includes days if ppl stay!! Took us a long time for her to stroll around house without legging it lol although still does it but alot calmer.

    See how she goes its not happened since but I defo cannie keep her if she does it much more! :(

    I've noticed that cats looove me way more now. They'll curl up on my lap and try to snuggle with me more than usual. I'm feeling more motherly too, though. So maybe it's the combination of both.

    My cat seems to be fine with it, but she is a total primadonna and will probably be a bit of a handful once I push this little alien out. I guess I'll just have to be sure to give her lots of attention then.

    My dog certainly has been acting a bit differently. She doesn't play with me as rough as she use to or as rough as she is with other people in my fam. She also sits by the bathroom door whenever she hears me puking my life away. Part of me is actually glad she sits by the door because I swear down it feels as though I'm going to die each time lol.

    give her a treat after she's been to the litter tray and when you find her naughty spots, take her to it, and then squirt her with water... she'll learn in a few days

    If mine know (1 dog, 7 cats) they certainly don't care, cause they jump on and pounce on my tummy MUCH more often than they EVER did before!
