I have a cat; his name is Wallus and he's not quite a year old and i have one month old son. When we first got Wallus i was 32 weeks pregnant and at first he was a little bit of a handful. Since i gave birth to Easton though he's really calmed down and is great to have with the baby even though many people strongly advise against cats with newborns we keep a close eye on him but i don't think he would hurt a fly. How many of you have pets or did have, and how were they arounnd your children? Also which pets do you think are best for a child to grow up with and have as a lifelong friend?
