I’ve had enough stupid nooze for one day–haven’t you? Let’s enjoy some of God’s stuff.
Want to give a baby some genuine jollies? Bring in a cat. No one’s better at making babies laugh. And looking at it from a cat’s point of view, what could be better than a cat-sized human?
How about a bit of cozy time, eh?
There’s tons of video showing cats loving human babies, so it must be a thing. The cat in this video seems cautious about it, but he soon comes around. I wish we’d had a cat when I was a baby, but I’m afraid my mother was too fastidious for that.
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.
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.
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!
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…
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.
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.
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?
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.
