Smile overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

Ever since our baby dd came in the door, our cat has been in love with her! LOL!
For the first couple months I had to chase her out of the crib, she always wanted to be right next to her. Now she happily sleeps on the changing table next to the crib. If I put dd down for a nap and close the door to her room, the cat will scratch and meow until I let her in, then she happily takes her place watching over the baby

When the baby wakes up she meows and comes to get me. I think its just really cute! Even when I change dd's diap on the changing table (with the cat on it) and dd is batting at and pulling on the cat (I dont of course encourage this behavior but at 5 months she has no concept of gentle yet) the cat just purrs and rubs into dd. I even saw dd whack the toy in the cats direction, drop the toy, and the cat actually pawed it back over to dd!

I must have just gotten lucky. Does anyone else have any sweet animal baby stories to share?

Re: overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

My DS was born when our puppy was 9 months old. I had been on bedrest and she laid right there with me everyday. She is a Dashwahwah (Mom is a Chiwahwah and Dad is a Dashund, looks like a Winnie dog with a tight collar on.) She would lay next to Korbin as he napped and even would take her nose and move the covers to cover him up. SO SWEET! I've got pictures of that b/c I knew no one would ever believe me on that. But I swear.

She also stands in front of him when anyone strange is around and growls at them. Like the pizza man comes to the door and our other dog runs up to the pizza man and starts attacking him for the food, Dashwahwah runs and stands in front of Korbin until he leaves.

Re: overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

I got Mia in July of '03 and Aedan was born in November '03 and even at that young of an age she is very motherly toward him (most of the time). Let's just say she is more of a baby lover than a toddler lover. Aedan never really cried until he was about 3 weeks old...he just kinda squeaked. Anytime he would start making any kind of noise or wiggle around Mia would start whining and trying to stand up on her hind legs to look in the bassinet. She did the same thing when Harley was born, but he wasted no time in crying....actually he came out crying!

Now that Aedan is 2.5 and Harley is 9 months old, Mia tries to stay out of the way a little. She will curl up on the couch with Aedan as long as he is nice to her. She is a Miniature Pinscher and only weighs 5 lbs, but she puts up with a lot of abuse from the boys until she decides she's had enough a goes to hide. They are usually pretty good with her though....I keep a close eye on them, she's my baby too ya know!

Re: overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

Our doggie has always been like a mother to our boys. It's hard to explain, but I could tell her maternal instincts were in full-force when they came home. Nothing cute like covering them up with blankets (she's not that smart, lol) but she does love them.

Re: overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

When I was a baby. Mom had a siamese and that was her kitty, it didn't really take to anyone else. Since I came home from the hospital the cat would sleep under my bed and get my mom if I so much as moved. Once I got older the cat would howl and hiss at anyone that came to the door.

My dad said that when the kitty would get tired of me chewing on him then he would put the cat in the playpen for a break..lol

My mom had the opposite situation with her dog..she had a poodle and when I was born, the dog ran away because it wasn't getting any attention at all. I was an early baby and had a lot of issues as a baby and I guess the dog couldn't handle it. Our poodle mutt is very motherly toward other animals...and she tolerates our boys really well...but she's not overly motherly toward them. She'll sit and let them tug on her quite a bit before getting up and leaving....and she won't allow nephew to mess with her. She runs and hides from him.

Re: overprotective kitty! Any baby and pet stories?

One of my cats, Willow, is really good about letting Isabel maul her. She'll stay close by so Isabel can crawl to her, and will sometimes even lie down and let Isabel "get" her. I don't think she's motherly toward her, just really indulgent. The other cats cut her a pretty wide berth most of the time, but I have seen Anya accept a few maulings, too. I have some great pics of Isabel with her kitties
