Coach your cat to welcome a new child
Expectant parents no longer need to worry about the myth that cats and babies won’t adjust to each other easily, but a resident cat does need help getting used to a new family member.
Train your child in the art of cat ownership.
Maybe your children are pleading to bring home a cat, or perhaps you’d like kitten and baby to start out life together. Either way, introducing cats and kids takes time and effort.
What if your home is child-free but friends with kids come to visit?

Cats are long-lived creatures who can still be around to celebrate their 20th birthdays. For many kids, a pet cat was a memorable presence during the milestones of childhood. With some pre-planning and early vigilance, you can make sure this long relationship is a healthy and happy one for everybody.
