Hiding Kitty and Acrobatic Baby

Our little black kitty is hiding these days. I don't know what happened to scare her so much but for the last couple days she has mostly been hanging out under the couch. She still comes out for snuggles and to eat (of course) and apparently early in the morning gets her early morning belly rub from Kevmo's foot before he goes off to work, but other than that we're not seeing much of her. If I'm sitting with her and the mailman comes, she freaks out and dives back under the couch... weird. I've felt her all over and she seems to have no painful spots or broken bones, she's got bright eyes and does not seem to have a fever so I think she's not sick. It bothers me that something could have happened to make her feel so scared and I think about how that would feel if she were my child and not a cat. That would make it about 100 times worse I guess. She can't tell me what happened but something clearly has her spooked and there's nothing I can do to fix it or explain. All I can do is try to help her feel safe now and hope she gets better. She probably will.

Meanwhile, the Little Dude keeps getting bigger and stronger and even MORE active, and I've been having a lot of fun playing Name That Body Part Making a Lump in My Belly. Is it a foot? An elbow? A shoulder? A butt? There's no way to tell, but I love having this little "interaction". He sticks a foot (or whatever) out and I poke/massage/rub on it until he moves again. In between having to pee all the time, not being able to sleep much and all the other normal pregnancy stuff, it's nice to have some fun going on too.


  • Yeah for acrobatic baby!! I can't wait to meet him someday :) Maybe hiding baby senses acrobatic baby and is nervous about it.

  • wow, you have a baby coming how exciting to see how you guys do the parenting thing. Your lives will change and deepen so much. Cats beware, you may have to slide down on the totem pole of love.

  • Poor kitty! Sometimes Doofus Archie gets that way. Never have figured out why, but he always bounces back.

    Good luck with the body parts game!

    (Um - did you want me to send you a CD? Or were you just leaving yet another very nice comment? Heh, heh.)

  • How fun is that! A year from now you'll be looking at your belly and remembering you rubbed little boy's hiney there. I'm all weepy just thinking about it.

  • I am sooo sorry about your cat. I hope things get better there soon.

    Baby movement is the best! My first loved to scratch my bladder. She loved Captain Picard too. My younger didn't move much (breech), but I would get a lot of tickly feelings. It just makes you get to know them so much better.
