Here’s a strange fun fact we’ve been telling our families about. I figured it deserves its own post here. The cat knew I was pregnant. And he knew it before I did. Don’t ask me how, because I have no idea. But about a week or so before I found out, he started acting strange.
He usually lays right next to us on the couch every evening while we watch TV. He sleeps and purrs for hours on end. A week before I found out, he sat right in front of me and started staring at me. I thought it was funny for about 5 minutes, then it started to creep me out. He literally sat there for 15 minutes straight, stared right at me, and then disappeared upstairs. I thought that was odd. He’d never done this before.
Every day after that, he would sit as far away from us as possible and stare at me. At one point he sat across the room and stared for an hour straight. I was starting to feel very uncomfortable! Gert kept calling him so he’d come sit with us, but Jules clearly wanted nothing to do with me, nor with him if I was around.
The staring went on for several weeks lol
Things are back to normal now, but it was so strange for about a month or so. I’m convinced he felt it and needed to get used to it or something. Weird, huh?
