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).
