We had our two cats for years before we had kids, so we were mildly concerned about how the cats would react. They didn't react. They couldn't have cared less. The babies didn't feed them, so they had no interest in them. When we brought each of our babies home from the hospital, we set them down in their carriers (the babies) and let the cats sniff them, then the cats walked off. That was it. We have always kept the bedroom doors shut so that the cats weren't in the kids rooms and the cats stopped having interest in their rooms. The only time a cat goes in there now is if they are following me. When I leave, the cat goes with me.
