  • just watch for infection with the scratches, i understand you love the cat but i think you need to consider how he is going to react with a baby, he could possibly hurt your baby when he/she is born you need to debate weither or not it is worth it

  • I was scratched by my deranged cat this morning. I dont think it will hurt you at all.

  • you should be fine as long as the cat isn't sick. and i agree with the above post, if it'll just attack you out of nowhere it may do the same with your baby, and could seriously hurt a baby, especially if you aren't right there next to the baby when/if the cat attacks to get it away

  • at my baby shower for my first, my cat went psycho on me and clawed the heck outta my hand- it was swollen and i could barely use it for days. just make sure to clean the wound very well because cats do have bacteria on their feet/claws from the litter box. some neosporin would be good too.

  • the baby should be fine. remember, he/she's cushioned in there & well-protected. just clean the wound, like pp advised & put some neosporin on it.
