Luna and her mother have been almost attached at the hip since since Luna was adopted by her family.
Luna Smith’s mother, Samantha Smith, told The Dodo, “Me and her have the best relationship.” She always follows me around and is really sweet! Even those who dislike cats like Luna when they come to visit!
Due to their strong relationship, Luna quickly became aware that her mother was expecting a child. In fact, Smith is confident that Luna was aware of the situation before she was. As her mother’s due date drew near, Luna realized she needed to start preparing for the new baby’s birth because she had been so kind and attentive during her pregnancy, even more so than normal.
Around five months into her mom’s pregnancy, Luna started dragging items of clothing into a little pile at 3:30 a.m., meowing loudly the entire time. When her mom would get up in the morning, she’d find Luna sitting by her newly formed “nest” — made with love for her mom to have the baby in.
“It started as here and there, but the closer I got to my due date, it was every single night,” Smith said. “I would get up and give her cuddles and kisses … and tell her I appreciated her nest!”
Luna just wanted to make sure her mom was ready for the new baby, and making nests was the best way she knew how to help. For some reason, she always made the nests around 3:30 a.m. — and apparently, her instincts were correct, because Smith ended up giving birth at 3:18 a.m. Somehow, Luna knew.
Finally, after months of waiting, Luna got to meet her new baby brother — but she wasn’t as impressed as her mom thought she would be.
She was not at all pleased with the outcome, but she is undoubtedly growing fond of little bucko, according to Smith.
As much as she adores her mother, Luna just wanted to be sure she was ready to welcome a child into the world. Over time, her family is certain that Luna will develop an obsession with the new child as well.
