Am I preparing myself for real kids? - Page 2

Except for one thing I have to say, you WILL go to jail if you lock your child in a cage, for any reason........
So..... handcuffs and shackles instead then?

ETA: I just wanted to comment further on those who say I'm paranoid about my kittens. Is that really a bad thing? Their health and well-being is important to me because:

1) I love them
2) It is MY responsibility
3) They probably view me as a parent-figure and - so, I need to fill that role to ensure their physical and emotional well-being.

I don't see anything wrong with my "paranoia". I'm sure over time, I'll learn to recognize what is a big deal and what isn't. I'm still learning as I go along here.

I'm not saying that I'm offended by those who say I'm paranoid..... I'm just replying to those comments.

Cats recognize their humans as other cats They don't recognize them as parent figures as much as it might seem that way to us.
I don't know about being paranoid, it's not good or bad. It's just an observation....Some people may be relaxed and still do a fine job at caring for their pet and others do it while worrying...

You shouldn't feel paranoid about questioning your care and health of your kittens.......I apologize if I made you feel that way. Many of us completely feel that our fur babies are our children...There is a difference in what you should know and what you better know already when it comes to caring for the life of a beloved kitty and the life of a human being.......

I just came across this and had to laugh!

I am super parnoid too, just look at my thread about Cody's tounge. Sometimes I just need to chill, but it is so hard when you love them SO much.

To answer the question, I am not sure about you but I know that I am probably using my fur kids as a substitute for real kids. But when I have real kids, I know for a fact that I will still be a worry wart with the cats. Guess I didn't answer the question? lol.

I think there are a lot of children out there who would be blessed to be as cared for as my cats.

My cats ARE my kids. I do not have nor have I ever wanted human children. At all. Not even the slightest desire. I am more than happy with my kitties and luckily Dana agrees. I had a very large hand in raising my younger brothers and just have never really been able to relate to children in any way. Now kitties are another story. I don't know what I'd do without them.
