Male Cat Acting Aggressive to Our Pregnant Female

by Kim

We have two cats....our female is very pregnant and our male is acting very aggressive towards her in the last two days. Does this mean she is getting close to delivery? He was fine with her until yesterday, now he meows loudly at her and bites her neck. She swats him back and doesn't take any of his guff but I'm curious why he might be doing this??

cats react aggressively because of fear and fear can be caused by anything from a strange smell to un familiar behaviour. It could simply be that the female cat smalls differently or is behaving differently and it has worried him. Unfortunately they react with aggression.

I don't think it is anything to worry about, especially as the female cat is taking none of it. She will sort him out.

It may be an idea to not leave the male cat alone with the kittens for the first few days and to introduce him to them under your supervision, just in case he becomes spooked by them and reacts aggressively towards them. It is rare but some cats may react like this in strange circumstances.

Congratulations on your forth coming new furry family.
