Pregnancy and kitteh

Short and sweet. Wife is pregnant, is there anything (besides litter box, I take care of that anyway) that we should be on the lookout for? I just hope Squeaks takes well to a baby, she's pretty shy around strangers.

I was going to write a Chuck Norris saying here, but he e-mailed me a roundhouse kick.

Nothing that I know of, but I'm no expert.

Just wanted to say congratulations!

Congratulations. I would imagine its the same as it would be for a dog. Before baby is born, get kitteh used to things like diapers and baby monitors and cribs, all the sights, smells and even sounds of a baby. If you are going to have rules like, no kitteh in the nursery, best to set that rule down early so its not a shock when the kiddo arrives. Good luck and congratulations again!

Thanks, peeps! I guess the good thing is our "nursery" has always been a room that is off-limits to the cat. On the rare occasion we go in there, she will dart in, but she just makes a couple of laps, then plops in front of the door. This cat will get to go in because she can't jump well enough to get into a crib. That whole graceful and athletic thing missed this one We're working on the smells and getting used to a baby. My sister in law has a 6 month old that she brings over often, and the cat, while skittish, is pretty friendly to her. I think we'll be alright.

My daughter is now 18 months old. When she was first born, both cats were slightly interested, but that was it. Neither one were jealous or tried any funny business. (Of course, both are good cats to start with and we never have any problems.)

Both cats were given plenty of loving and attention so they didn't feel left out.

Now that my daughter is bigger and on the move, they are still very good. If she is pestering them, they just move on to a spot she can't reach them. They are finally getting to the point where they let her pet them. And she has been very firmly taught to be "gentle" with them. The one time she got rough, they bopped her (no claws) and she got the hint.

I find they tend to work it out on their own!
