Im prego, and my cats mean to everyone but me. should i worry for my baby?
I'm 37 weeks pregnant(about to pop for those who don't know)
My cat is mean to everyone but me, including my husband and guest who come over. Teeth and claws come out, and she will hide and pounce on people. She's not spayed, and she's not declawed. Do you think she will act the same to my baby?

Many cats do not like guests, usually I would say , she would get along with the baby after a while. From what I understand she is very defensive and could hurt the baby, has she ever hurt anyone? In most cases if you let the cat smell some of the things baby will use she will get use to the smell of the baby, also take a blanket to the hospital and wrap baby in it and let your husband take it home for kitty to smell. One of your problems is she needs to be spayed, when female cats come in heat they are moody, this will help a lot. I do not believe in declawing but you can clip her nails. I would not leave her alone with the baby... just let her see the baby with you near by.. proceed with caution and good luck,,if she does not accept the baby then rehomeing may be the only answer Miss Bluie
