  • We had a cat. Our son started to go after the cat when he started to crawl and the cat started living in the basement. We had a friend with a big farm and he took her so she wouldn't be so stressed out.

  • i had a cat before my 1st child was born but i didn't keep her.. she was an inside/outside cat and very cuddly but i just didn't feel okay with her around anymore so i gave her to my neighbor who had been asking for her anyway lol. she loved cats and the animal spent half her time over there anyway.

  • I had 3 cats and one dog before my daughter was born. Damn right, I kept them. They had been apart of my family since I was a kid or teenager an a couple cases no way was I going to get rid of them just cause I had a baby. The only way they left my house was due to old age and illness. My daughter is 8 years old now and we lost the last one in June. Kiddie was the last of my childhood pets.

  • Yes, we've always had a pet of some kind (mainly caged pets- dh is allergic to cats and dogs.) We had hedgehogs prior to having kids and actually lost one and bought another one shortly after my oldest was born. Now we have guinea pigs. I can't picture not having pets at all.
