My baby's due in October, and I've been debating as to whether I should get a cat at this point. My husband will take care of its litter so that is of concern. I just wonder if a pet will be an inconvenience or if it will be completely neglected when the baby arrives. What's been your experience with pets and babies?Answer Question

We have cats and dogs. I foster for rescue organizations and sometimes we have lots of cats and dogs. When my grandson was an infant we had a multigenerational home. There was me (grandma), my three adult sons, dil, and grandbaby. For a while we had my grandbaby's lab mix, our golden retriever, two foster dogs, our 3 cats, and two foster kittens. We all got along in a 3 bedroom house.
I think a dog is better. My grandson is now 20 mo and he is really close to his lab mix dog. The dog sits next to his car seat and keeps him company. We now live in seperate homes and the dog comes with him when I take care of him. My grandson barks and can sit for cookies. We just put in a doggie door and he crawls through it. He is one of the pack! Its great. He ignores the cats.
