Cats and Babies
I know about the whole 'don't change the litter box when pregnant' thing for toxoplasmosis.
I've heard the myth about cats being 'soul-stealers' or something equally ridiculous because the milk smell on baby would often make them cuddle, thus suffocating baby. I've also read that WHOLE thing was a myth, and there is no need to worry about cat and baby except for tail-grabbing and jealousy issues, but certainly nothing fatal.
However, my MIL still suggested we be rid of our cats when I was pregnant. I refused, of course, because our cats are part of our family.
Have you guys ever had problems with pets and your children? If you had cats, did you get rid of them during pregnancy/once the kid was born? Why or why not?
