Many people when they have a Kitty they act as they have another baby in the home, of course,
we do that because the cats are extremely cute and friendly pets.
So, we make sure that our cats are always clean and healthy. However, we must take care of our babies from risks that cats could cause.
Kitty & Pregnant MoM
From the first day that we know that the mother is pregnant, we don’t allow our cat to get outdoors ever,
and at the same time not allow other cats to get indoors.
Because our cat we know everything about it feeding, cleaning and all other things, but the outdoors cat we don’t know how its life.
Is it a clean and healthy life or not? And what it is eating? So, it could be feeding in some food that makes sickness to the pregnant mother.
Birds or mammals when cats eat that food it can cause infection parasitic toxoplasmosis.
The result of that can be stillbirth, miscarriage, deafness, epilepsy or such birth defects all that can caused by this parasite.
Your Baby Arrival
Clean surfaces before using it in prep pure meat or scrubbing, and take care when clean pure vegetables and fruits, and wash your hand before friction your eyes.
Now cats usually use gardens as litter boxes, and toxoplasmosis, cysts are hiding in the feces of infected animals,
so make sure that you are wearing gloves when gardening.
Meat must be cooked before you feed it to your cat, do not to feed your cat pure or undercooked meat.
shovel fecal matter twice a day to block any cysts that are getting through in the feces from becoming infectious.
Prepare your cat slowly by using the whole pregnancy time, but prepare it from what?
Because there are cats can be affected by a new baby so you should prepare to that by some ways like tapes of baby to adapt your cat to the new sounds
it’s about to hear, make positive contact with baby smell by chafe baby lotion on your hands before starting to do an activity with your Kitty.
Put your baby furniture as soon as possible, and let your cat many weeks to check it.
Put double-sided sticky tape. Cats do not like sticky things, after a period of time it will avoid these places.
The litter box must be away from the baby place if it is near careful and don’t to move it in one-time no
but move it a few steps every day until the cat gets used to the new place.
Finally, any cat care routines that will be shifted from a parent after the baby arrives should actually be switched one to two months before the birth.
These might include feedings, grooming, play sessions, and sleep locations. The cat may need time to adjust to the style and skills of the new caregiver.
After Your Baby is Home
When you first arrive home from the hospital, peacefully greet your Kitty in a quiet room without interruption.
Once you’ve had a few minutes to reconnect, let in everyone else partner, baby, grandparents, baby nurse, and other well-wishers.
Place a used receiving blanket or piece of infant-wear in a quiet area where the cat can investigate it.
Make sure that the crib and other baby sleeping-locations are off-limits to the cat. A newborn cannot turn over or even move her head at first,
so a heat-seeking Kitty who chooses to cuddle up close to the baby’s face could make it difficult for the child to breathe.
Close the door to the nursery when the baby is napping.
If there is no door, either install a temporary screen door or place a crib tent over the crib to keep the cat out.
These precautions also prevent the cat from urinating in the crib, something she may try if extremely stressed.
The baby safely at rest, now’s the perfect time to grab a catnap with your favorite feline.
