My cat wants to lie on me while giving birth — 2 Comments

  1. What a lovely compliment from the cat. She seems to totally rely on and trust her owner. A very unique way to welcome her family into this world.

    If it were me, I’d sit on the floor. My legs would be spread to make a sort of u-shaped fencing for the cat to lie against. I would them cover my “lap” with a large enough blanket, towel, etc. that would allow me to roll it up around the cat in the event I had to get up. If I did get up, I’d come back and sit beside the nest.

  2. The human will need good bladder control for a start, a vet phone number on speed dial, a large carrier to hand in case of complications, a guarantee of peace and quiet, low lighting and last but not least, some first hand experience of cats giving birth, so she knows if something is going wrong that needs veterinary help.

    If she is well prepared, confident, then I think she should go ahead.

    Not so sure that a YouTube production would not interrupt the trust of the cat and distract the human too much. Distraction can really mess up a birth for a cat.

    Maybe she should just concentrate on the cat giving birth, be in the moment.

    Income from a You Tube video might help pay to spay the mother cat!
