5 Ways That Cats Can Serve as Baby Accessories

If you happen to have a cat when you become pregnant, there invariably will be people who will tell you that you MUST get rid of the poor feline for any variety of crazy reasons — from cats “stealing babies’ breath” (has never happened) to cats’ dander making the air less “pure” (no more so than babies’ dirty diapers, let me tell you).  I can tell you from experience that cats not only make adorable, harmless companions for babies, but can also serve as helpful baby accessories:

1.  Cat as baby blanket.


2.  Cat as boppy.

3.  Cat as teddy bear.

4.  Cat as protective belt.

5.  Cat as toddler pillow.


Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

  • Thank you so much for posting these photos & your wonderful words of wisdom over those ‘wonderful’ scare tactics that people use to freak out expectant parents that happen to have cat/s. I help run a cat rescue in the UK and we’ll have at least 3 calls a month from pregnant women who want to rehome their cats for no reason other than that they are pregnant (I currently have 8 cats on our waiting list needing to come into one of our fosterers just for this reason). When my daughter came along we had 5 cats & none of them caused any problems, just years of companionship for my daughter & us.

    • My pleasure! So sad to hear about the cats in need of new homes. We have three cats that we got from Persian rescue groups and they have been AMAZING with the kids! (Serve as “toddler pillows” all the time.)

  • I had fun reading and seeing these photos. I didn’t know these 5 ways that cats can serve as baby accessories until now. If I will have a baby soon I will try this. It’s really cute. Thanks for sharing this article.

  • Oh am glad to have read this,am a cat lover and as my new born came along friends and families have been telling me to get ride of my cat’s and not put my baby near them but this article has changed my point of view…surely i will try this.thank you.
