weird kitty behavior?
so i normally post on the rabbits section, etc. but i'm home this weekend for the holiday, and i am reminded that i have a cat too, sort of.
bella is my kittybaby and i love her so much. but when i moved out of my parents house she was 9 yrs old and had lived in the same place her whole life. she was born of a stray we were helping, so she was literally born here. i just felt it would be cruel to move her somewhere that she wouldn't have a safe closed backyard and the familiar home. and then i married a bird guy anyways, so it would have been rough.
so, bella is about 12 now, and just tonight i witnessed something weird, and my mom confirmed it.
she takes a toy, something shaped lieka kitten every time apparently, drags it to my parents bedroom door (in the middle of the night) or at the moment, the door of the room i'm in... and starts crying like she's in heat. (she's spayed) she doesn't seem to want to play or be petted much, it's weird. i hold the toy up and she nuzzles it for a minute, snuggles up for a little while, then leaves. a little while later, she's in the hallway with another stuffy toy. she's brought three to me this evening.
could it be that my parents aren't giving her enough attention? is this some kind of weird mommy instinct thing? i mean, we've had cats my whole life, but this is kinda weird... anyone have advice?
