Cats & Babies: Crescendo of Doom

You’ll have to pardon the headline. I couldn’t resist it.

Some of these babies are pretty rough on the cat, but the cats are careful not to rough the baby. Heck, one of these cats is bigger than the baby. If you wonder about the value of these interactions, judge them by the babies’ laughter.

Cats & Dogs & Babies

In case I don’t have internet access this evening, I’d better post this cat video now.

See how good cats and dogs are with babies. It must be so good for a baby! I’m sure if I had this as a baby, I would have grown up to be more polite to Verizon representatives.

Cats & Babies: Whatever

I’ve got about two minutes before the internet plotzes out on me, so without further ado, here it is–cats protecting babies. Cozy time!

Cats & Babies: Cuddles

It’s remarkable how gentle cats can be with human babies, isn’t it? With just a little hiccup or two–

Baby chews on pacifier ring. Baby offers it to cat, who takes his turn to chew on it. Baby puts it back into his own mouth. I can just hear my mother let out a shriek that you could hear in Timbuctoo…

Cats & Babies: The Movie

Don’t you hate movies that call themselves “The Movie”? I mean, what else would you think it was?

Anyway, time for a bit of coziness. Can’t beat cats and babies for that.

Note to parent with fantastically bad idea: Do not allow your toddler to play with electrical appliances. The cat won’t always be around to make him stop.

Still More Cats & Babies

All right, enough nooze already. Let’s turn to something wholesome.

Cats and babies make some beautiful music together. I don’t know how that crew of puppies got in here, and some of these little ones aren’t truly babies anymore–but it’s still some nice video. See if it makes you purr.

Cats Make Babies Laugh

What is it about cats that human babies find so hilarious? Babies’ minds are sealed books to us. By the time they’re old enough to talk, they can’t remember what they might have had to talk about when they were infants. I would love to know what goes on inside the mind of a little baby. Or the mind of a cat, for that matter.

Can it be that cats and babies understand each other?

Cats & Babies: The Epic Continues

It looks like cats don’t like human babies to be sad. It also looks like they know exactly what to do about it when it happens. And cat comfort really works!

They don’t seem to be troubled by old men with beards being sad.

Cuddly Cats

Let’s face it, you can’t do this with your goldfish. But cats are ideal for cuddling up and snoozing with. Even babies think so.

Our cat Peep excels at putting her humans to sleep. Her sister, Robbie, doesn’t bother. Well, nobody ever said they’re all alike.

Come to think of it, I do know someone who cuddles with his fish. But that is all I want to know about it.

Bonus: Sweetest Cat Video You Ever Saw

Patty found this on Facebook this morning, and I couldn’t wait till evening to share it with you.

Do you sing to your cat? I do. “Walk like a peep, talk like a peep” I sing to Peep the cat. This cat’s name is Bailey, and the little girl is Abby; and the song she sings is You Are My Sunshine. My father used to sing that to me if he had to walk the floor with me at night because I had gas or collywobbles–one of my very earliest memories, and one of the sweetest.

Abby, you are a glimpse into Heaven.
