Default Re: Pets, Kids and Families (X-Post from GD forum)

we want kids in a few years, but i'm the sort who doesn't feel like a house is ever really a home without a furball or two... we chose our cats carefully - we got purebreds so that we might know a little better what to expect (though i felt a little bad for not getting shelter kitties - but ours came from craigslist hahaha so ... they were allegedly shelter-bound) - they are a ragdoll and a pixiebob, both known for being pretty relaxed (esp. the ragdoll haha)

i was babysitting for a friend a few weeks ago, and her little one (just under a year old at the time) was curious about our cats. i watched closely so i could intervene if need be, but (because my friend has cats too, she's been working with her baby - teaching gentle touches, how to hold her little hand flat and not grab the fur and how not to press too hard) little one did so well with them, and they responded beautifully to her! it was so encouraging, and i really hope they respond the same way to my future kids! and... also that my future kids might learn without too much trouble to be as gentle as my friend's little one!
