Quote Of The Day

"All mammals seek a safe place to give birth. This 'nesting' instinct may be due to an increase in levels of prolactin, which is sometimes referred to as the nesting hormone. At this stage, as you may have observed with your cat, interference with the nest — or more importantly with the feeling of safety — will stall the beginning of labour."
