I was happy this weekend to visit with my newest "nephew" in the world - no actual relation, but the first child for the little girl I nannied when I was in college. Calvin is now 14 days old, and his two older siblings are kitties, both rescue cats of course, Annie - a large tuxedo gal, and Lily, a shy white girl with pretty golden eyes. I was able to assure them that the old myth of cats smothering babies as they sleep was a myth - Annie currently outweighs little Calvin. But she was pretty insistently biting at his socks when I was there, and Calvin's daddy wondered why. I think she was trying to take those things off his feet - Miss Hoppy sometimes did that with Paul!

I remember LH's kitties hiding upstairs for the first two weeks when they brought their first baby home (it smelled different and made that NOISE!!!! the horror!!!!) ... how do your cats react to new babies?
