  • I have few cats some like the kids and let them do what ever they want to them the others are never in the same room as the kids and if they are they are out of reach!

  • Our dogs love our boys, and our boys love our dogs... They can love them up, and they love to get kisses from them. We have 3 furry family members, 2 German Shepherds, and a Siberian Husky, all house dogs.

  • Our 22 month old used to love our doberman, though now she doesn't like for him to be near her cause he always tends to knock her down with his playing around.

  • My son isn't fond of my dogs, since he's the perfect height to get whacked in the face by their tails right now, heh. So I usually hear "no doggie, go 'way!". But at other times he's covering them with blankets and petting them, so who knows... He likes the cats, a couple of them are pretty much glued to his side, but most of them tend to leave him alone, since he gets too enthusiastic sometimes :)

  • We have a cat (she is de-clawed, but has never tried to scratch my dd).. My dd carries the cat around like a baby, lays on her, even pulls her tail! The cat will usually just lay there, but every now and then she runs & hides! lol

  • Well, our 3 dogs, 3 cats, pony and 2 kids all get along wonderfully, and 2 frogs that really don't have much say in the matter!

  • My animals have always been good with my daughter. I only have one cat that would bite her when she was a toddler if Kylie would not leave her alone and kept pestering. But even if Izzy did bite she was always gentle and NEVER broke the skin. They are best buds now and Izzy sleeps with her almost every night. Kylie learned pretty quickly how to treat animals because I work with animals plus I have fostered many litters of kittens. Kylie has helped me bottle raise several litters. Three of our cats areactually from a litter she helped me with and they have a great relationship. My oldest dog also sleeps with my daughter and the other two dogs are great with her as well.
