|We feed a feral cat (Honey) who is not fixed (we've tried and TRIED to trap her to get her fixed, but she is way too smart and we have not been successful yet!). She keeps getting pregnant and when she is close to having her babies, she suddenly becomes affectionate and lets us touch her. (we've tried getting her into a trap or carrier when she's in this friendly state, but she always escapes and gets away! Ugh!). Besides her, I've experienced many pregnant cats who become super friendly when they are expecting and even after they have their kittens. I'm sure it has to do with the hormones they are producing to help them bond with their babies.
(P.S. btw, I know this is kinda sad, but the feral cat (Honey) we can't trap that keeps getting pregnant always loses her kittens after they are a couple weeks old. It's sad, but good that she's not producing more cats that are feral and make even more feral cats...thankfully we have trapped and fixed her four siblings and their mother. She's the only one we have not gotten ahold of!)
