Cat realizes mom is pregnant when it sleeps on her bump: ‘The sweetest thing ever’

Pets can sense when big changes are happening at home. This kitty picked up on some life-changing news when she snuggled on top of her owner. 

TikToker @featuringtala shared a video of the touching moment when her cat, Rumi, discovered she was pregnant. According to Healthline, cats don’t actually know what “pregnancy” is, but they can detect when things are different. 

“Whether they’re responding to changes in smell, hearing a new but faint heartbeat, or just picking up on all the changes to the routine, we can’t say for certain,” Healthline stated. 

“The moment Rumi realized she was lying on 2 humans,” the video text read

The mom-to-be was eight months pregnant in the video. Rumi was sound asleep on top of her baby bump. Then, suddenly, the baby kicked, and Rumi woke up, looking stunned. The cat appeared to realize there was a bun in the oven.

“We don’t deserve cats,” the mom added in the caption

The touching moment racked up 12.6 million views and 2.5 million likes on TikTok

“This is the sweetest thing ever,” a user said

“Cats get such a bad wrap with babies but from my personal experience they are very loving and care a lot about their siblings,” another commented

“My daughter would kick and my cat would softly bat my stomach,” another said

“I remember when my fur baby felt the kicks,” a user wrote.  

“I didn’t know I was pregnant but my cat would hiss at me and try to bite me.. once my bump started to show he was always by my side,” a person replied
