  • He can get scratched or bitten, but I'd keep a close watch on them at all times.

  • ya ditto...i'd just keep an eye on them, bc kitty's first reaction will be to scratch. esp when baby decides to see how far her fur will stretch......

  • not for the kitten! at least i know how my son is with the cats, they refuse to come in when they see him!
