I've been a cat person for as long as I can remember. Maybe it's because cats are just like me: they love sleep, time alone, food, and they make you earn their affection. So long before I had human babies, I had "fur babies" of the feline variety. And, thankfully, once my human babies were born I learned that they can love my cats, too. If you have both a cat and a baby, you have probably noticed the signs your baby is falling in love with your cat, making your home a happy place for babies of all types.
My baby and my cats are the best of friends. Well, my baby thinks my cats are his BFFs, but close enough. At first my cats pretty much hated my baby and thought he was a demon child, and he didn't seem to notice they existed until he was a few months old. Then, one faithful day, he locked eyes with one and hasn't stopped loving them since.
The signs your baby is falling for your cat can be subtle, like when they try to snuggle with them, chase them, play with them, and even eat their food. My son lets the cats sleep in his crib, eat the food he drops from his high chair, and play with his favorite toys. If that's not love, I don't know what is. And while the love part of their relationship might be one-sided, as long as you are careful to keep your beloved cat and baby safe from each other, in my experience they will happily co-exist for years to come.
