I’m giving birth to my first child soon and am worried about how my cat will do. Not necessarily when the baby gets here, but leaving my cat, Nash, alone while I’m in labor/at the hospital for a few days. We adopted my cat when he was a few months old and have never been away from him since then. Myself or my husband have always been home with him at night since adopting him. He loves to be around us and is skittish around other people. My parents in law are going to stop by and feed him when we’re in labor and give him a little company (if he comes out). I just feel so guilty lol this is our first baby but my husband and I always joke around and say Nash is our first born . I just don’t want him to feel like we abandoned him for a few days and when we come home we come home with a baby so it’s just such a big change I don’t want him to resent us in any way. Any tips? Tia!
