What better way to celebrate one of the sassiest holidays of the year than by showcasing 12 pictures of cats and babies for National Cat Day on October 29? Yes, we already celebrated International Cat Day back in August, but cats are so amazing (and demanding) that they require two holidays. One for international cat lovers, and one just for the U.S., of course, since we all know cats live by their own timetable, obviously.
As for these photos, it looks like the cat owners are doing everything right by being close by when having their fur baby meet their tiny human baby, or just when their cats are interacting with their human baby. Most cats want to lie with their tiny humans, whether they just want to be around love and be snuggled, or, like most creatures, are merely curious of something that's moving, wiggling, giggling, and making noise, says Los Angeles-based certified dog and cat behaviorist and trainer Russell Hartstein in a Romper article. "As with all animals, for the safety of both species, it is never recommended to leave them alone together. Always have a parent supervise interactions of a child and a cat," Hartstein said.
So in celebration of National Cat Day, check out these adorable photos of cats and babies, and don't forget to post your own picture of your sweet cat and their (I mean your) tiny human, too. Just be sure to always supervise.
