The Vine: June 24, 2011
I have a question for the cat-happy readers of Tomato Nation. I'm six months pregnant with my first child. We have three cats, and I would like some advice on how to introduce the baby to the cats and vice versa. Most of the info that I've found online has been about dogs.
Our cats (unsurprisingly) have very different personalities. Ginge is lover and will sit in any lap available and purr. He was a stray that adopted us and I think he had a rough time before us since he freaks out if you walk towards him (he hates feet) or startle him. Grindle is a bit of a freak. He doesn't like change or sudden movements. He's very loving with my husband and me, but he hides from strangers, unless they are in the kitchen and may possibly feed him. Moondie is a little princess. Though she's half the size, she bosses the other two around. I am HER person and she follows me around and if I'm sitting down — and Ginge hasn't beaten her to it — she's in my lap. She can be a territorial pee-er; we're working on that, but suggestions welcome. Thanks!
