I am gonna get a cat I think. My kids scream, and cry, a good portion of the day. For no reason other than they are brats. My friend came over in January for the day and brought their cat. My kids sat, quietly, and stared at that cat all god damn day (he was on the other side of the baby gate so they couldn't get him) If that is what shuts my kids up, then so be it. Plus I love cats.

I never said my kids would hurt or torture a cat. We have had cats and ferrets in the past and their daycare has cats and our neighbor has cats, as well as their grandparents. Just because a child is young doesn't mean they hurt animals or other people. Get a life.

I feel guilty wanting one just to quiet the kids down though. I mean I love cats but I work 40 hours a week and the kids are in daycare. I think the cat would get lonely.

Go for it just choose wisely, see if you can do a trial period. Some cats can be annoying and get into everything. I like cats but only the mellow ones. I have one that jumps all over my counters in my kitchen, try's to get into my cabinets, jumps up and gets into stuff in my room when I am trying to sleep, but don't have the heart to give him back. I just hope he chills out more when he gets older. Maybe you could find a mature cat at a shelter that's good with kids. Save a life.

Please don't get a cat if you think they'll mistreat him!

No. They love cats. There are cats at their daycare & they pet the neighbors cats. We had ferrets for quite a bit too. They never hurt the ferrets why would they hurt cats?
