Cats have no concept of human gender. No studies indicate that cats know whether you are male or female.

However, due to their strong ability to smell hormones, it is believed, they are able to tell if a woman is pregnant before she even knows. Cats can become rather affectionate with pregnant women.

Some believe cats respond to the heartbeat of the unborn baby.

  2. That was funny and full of facts as well … as for the video, it is now an ear worm and in my head for the rest of this evening. Your cat is cute Jeanine.
