    Default Cat Claims Baby Crib as His Own

    Cat Claims Baby's Crib As His Own



    Who's the baby?

    When Reddit user Max Brown and his wife had a crib built for their baby girl, who is due in a few weeks, their cat Finn made himself right at home in it. Brown shared a photo to Imgur last week of the 20-pound feline sprawled out in it.
    "I find him in there every few days and pull him out right away," he wrote. "My wife came and got me yesterday and when I saw him I figured I'd get a picture before taking him out."


    Brown's father-in-law, a carpenter, now plans to build a second crib just for the cat.
    "When the baby starts using the crib, our plan is to keep the door closed while she is in there," Brown shared in an email to The Huffington Post. "In the process of this photo going to the front page of Reddit (where I originally posted it) we got tons of input and advice from other people who've been in similar situations with their cats and cribs. Mainly we heard when it was all said and done it ended up not being an issue. But just for good measure my wife is going to ask her dad to build a new kitty bed for him so he doesn't feel left out."

    heh, my 5 yr old gets out of bed every night, in the middle of the night, to get into our bed. At which point, our big Siamese gets into his bed and sleeps there 'til morning.

    My four year old does this and because the dog likes to sleep with her, he decides to get in bed with us, too

    I'll have to dig up pics of our cat sleeping in all the things we had for our daughter when she was born. The crib, the swing, the bouncer, etc. Everything was designed to be soft and cuddly, just the way a cat likes things.

    My poor daddy who is in his 80's actually believed that old wives tale that a cat could "steal a baby's breath" when the baby is sleeping. When my sister was pregnant and her cat took the crib over, much like the kitty in the picture above, he said 'You better get rid of that cat! It'll take that baby's breath in the middle of the night!!" We're all like: "Daddy. That's an old wives tale. That is physically impossible for a cat to steal anyone's breath."

    I think that was a result of a long time ago, when babies died of SIDS before people knew what it was, they had to blame something and it was usually a cat because often times, the cat was in the baby's room. Probably because the cat knew something was wrong and was trying to let the parents know.

    ^Well, a cousin of mine found their cat sitting ON their first baby's face in the crib several times. They didn't get rid of the cat, but they did make one of their spare rooms into a cat's paradise with all kinds of stuff for cat entertainment and got a second cat. After a while it was okay and they had only minor problems when the second baby arrived. All kids and cats survived.

    Yikes!! Yeah, come to think of it, it would make sense that a cat might think that new little creature is just a heating pad. "Oh look!" says the cat. "A warm thing just for me! Let me take a nap on it!"
