Babies and cat

Hello , early on the year I got a persian chinchilla kitten and I love her but I was afraid of my baby reaching the litter and getting parasites . I read that even if they are indoor pets and get wormed , a simple flee can bring parasites . So I gave back my kitten and know i feel very sad i miss her . And i would like advise about how to deal with babies (almost a year) and cats

    A lot of cats want to be near the baby. Just don't let your cat sleep near your baby's face. This is very dangerous. It could interfere with your baby's breathing. Also, it is essential to protect your cat from fleas and ticks. I personally buy Advantage at Pet express store. It works well. In case you still worry about reaching the litter box, it is better to buy a covered one.

    Great advice, guys. My cat was almost 10 years old when my son was born. At first, I worried about reaching the litter, but I should say, he got used to the restrictions pretty fast.

    There are few very simple rules you should follow to avoid parasites. Make sure the nursery is always closed and check your cat with the local vet regularly. We have an orange tabby cat for 7 years, two babies grew up with him (3 and 5yo) and we never had any problems. Those cats are really special in my opinion https://www.catfoodpoint.com/orange-tabby-cat/ and maybe that's one of the reasons everything went so well in our case.

    I had thirteen generations of cats and yes sometimes they bring parasites like blood-sucking skin lice. If you keep the hygiene of the cat and baby and the room clean, you might not have any problem.

    I had seven cats when my youngest daughter was born.  They were strictly indoor cats, and we never had a problem.  My daughter was taught pretty much from birth how to treat the cats with kindness and respect, never chasing or grabbing at them.  She was taught to sit down and let them come to her, then to simply stroke them gently.  She's nearly 18 now, and all animals love her.
