I am 31 weeks pregnant and own 5 cats. We tried for 5 years to get pregnant and finally did it through fertility treatments. I have had so many family members, friends and even aquaintances ask when we are getting rid of my cats that it is driving me insane. When I tell them that I have no plan to get rid of the cats, that the cats are in fact older "brothers and sisters" to my baby they get this judging look on their face. The ones that know me best try to then keep their opinions to themselves. Others, however can't help it. They all have to offer their opinion on how the cat will sit on the baby and kill it or something equally tragic. I just tell them that the kid is so used to purring already (4 out of 5 cats love sitting on the belly) that the baby won't be able to sleep without the cat nearby. Plus I think Merlin is looking for a disciple of evil (he is my cat that is the main trouble causer). I can see Merlina and the baby (when he is big enough) gaining up on mommy and daddy. How do I get them to mind their own business!
