Answer by Kate
Whenever a cat does this sort of behaviour it has absolutely nothing to do with being naughty, it is a reaction to something whcih has caused your cat to feel unsettled or worried about something and they are using the faeces as a strong scent marker to help reassure themselves. It is quite a common problem.

in your cats case I would think that things have changed in the home since you found out you were pregnant. You may smell different, you may be behaving slightly differently (they can pick up on our moods etc) you may even have started to prepare for the new arrival. Any of these things could be the cause.

can i ask that you read my page about this issue which should be able to help you understand the issue and also how you can help your cat.

here is the page
