My cat did the same thing with my baby. He would sneak into the crib and just snuggle up at the baby’s feet. He was always careful and he never laid down near the baby’s head or face. He was a good boy.
I had a cat who loved children. He adored my two girls and would meet them from school every day. If they were outside playing he would always be with them. We lived right next to a school and if I looked out at break time and saw a group of children huddled together, you could bet your life he would be in the middle of them being petted. When my girls went trick or treating round the neighbourhood with their friends he would be there trotting along beside them. If I was ever looking for him, all I needed to do was look for the nearest group of children and nine times out of ten that’s where he’d be.
My dog has been doing this with my belly since I've gotten pregnant. I wonder if he'll be close to the baby like this, too.
I'm not sure if the cat likes the baby, or just likes the warm blanket.
“No leave me be. This flesh burrito radiates heat.”
When I was taken home from the hospital my family had a calico named Heidi who moved into my crib, to my mother's approval, because the cat kept me occupied and entertained.
I'll never understand people who think cats are heartless or don't have feelings when there are clips like this. Cats have proven time and time again that they are just as empathetic and affectionate as dogs and people. Just look up the cat that saved the kid from a dog, or the cat that kept the Russian baby warm and followed it to the ambulance when help arrived.
Cats are so fucking good.
Cat: "But it is soft and warm, and I don't think it will be able to defend its food"
Can you imagine if cats knew about the millions of other cats who live all over the world? My house alone has a cat community of six and the neighborhood has about maybe 25. When cats become self aware they will become as sentient as human beings and enlighten the world.
