Becca - are you sure they're really your kids? I just can't imagine how kids who grew up with someone like you could possibly act that irresponsibly and meanly. The way you love your critters and take care of them, it sounds like maybe a case of "who are you and what have you done with my children?"

Freddie - I think CT said it best! It would be funny if it weren't true! Hope you get to move before they drive you completely nuts!

I know people who think cat hairs make their way into a mother's womb and stab the unborn baby like a spear and kill it. *rolls eyes*

Martin's mum always says not to let a cat sleep on or near your chest because they steal your breath while you sleep!!! Some people hey!

I guess the same way a dog scratch can give you rabies when the dog has had his rabie shot.

Default Wive's tale

It kills me how this has been around for years. The thing about "Cats stealing 'the baby's breath'" I think it started YEARS ago back in the OLD TIMES when someone saw their cat sniffing their sleeping baby's face. I guess the baby ended up dying from probably Sudden Death Syndrome. But meanwhile, the people thought the cat caused it. Hence, the wive's tale...

I've heard that saying about cats stealing a babies breath for years, I will say the only thing that worries me about a cat and a baby is the possibility of a cat cuddling nearly or on a babies face. I dont know that they would, but like the cat we have now, loves to snuggle up next to our head. Its not uncommon to wake up with this cat snuggled up next to our face! When my buddy was alive, he laid on my chest. Every morning I woke to him biting my nose. So I could see a cat snuggleing to close to a baby.
