That is cute but....

you really do want to teach Moe now, right away, that this bassinet is not for him, other wise he will be jumping in when the baby is in there.
not really worried about this but thank you for the concern as the cats will not be allowed in the babies room at any point.and moe is terrified of the sound of a baby but thank you again for the concern

But that's just it. If you don't want the cats in the baby's room, the time to teach them that is now.

If you let them claim the nursery and the cradle, they won't understand later when they are no longer allowed and it can cause more problems, more stress for them, when they will already be feeling stress from the other changes a baby will bring to their lives.

Teach them now that those places are off limits, so it will not even be an issue.

the cribs not in the nursery right now, its just in the living room. they already know that the nursery is off limits. but again thank you for your concern.

Congrats!! As for the kitty getting in with baby. . . Um, what's wrong with that? My 2 sisters and I have have cradle cats and my niece Chloe also had a cradle cat. I know little Chloe LOVES cats like nothing else and has all kinds of cat toys. I think it establishes a serious bond.

As for the folklore on cats smothering babies, show me proof. It's all wives tales. If the cat is mature and settled down there should be no problem. I wouldn't put a kitten there but I never had a problem with cats! Just saying!

Eleanor was with me since birth. She was like a second mother to me...heck she paid me more attention that my real mom (she was busy with her step son/my half brother) So I say Eleanor raised me. She was there looking out for me until the day she died...and still is. I think if it weren't for her (I still talk to her even if she's not physically here) I would not be the "sane" person I am today. I would have lost it YEARS ago after she left. Eleanor adopted me the day they brought me home and the only reason I wasn't allowed to sleep with her anymore is becasue my mom freaked out that I was BARELY allergic to cats and dogs...but still slept with the dog...i don't get that one...ANYWAY If Nibbler wants to let Moe in the nursery or whatever it's her cat, and her kid. I won't tell her what to do and no one else should either. It's her life, her family, and in the end her decision.

To clarify I do not think there is anything wrong with cats and babies together. I also grew up with cats. But not everyone feels that way.

I've read too many threads about people dumping their cats because "the cat won't leave the baby alone" or some other similar lame reason.

If you don't mind the cat sleeping with a new born, that's lovely. :) I only mentioned it in an effort to forestall a serious problem later and to help Moe, because it would be very confusing for him to suddenly be told he can't sleep in a spot he's been sleeping in for six months.

And if he is allowed to claim that cradle, then the baby is put in it, and he is told that is not his spot any more, problems could develop. It was for Moe's sake that I spoke up, not the baby's.

I don't think Nibbler had any intention of letting Moe think that...it was just a cute shot so she shared.

I was not arguing or debating! lol I don't think anyone was. Stating of opinions is all. And yes, I know it was a cute shot and yes I realise it's no one else's decision but Nibbler and her man as whether to let the cat in the nursery or not. :p
