The Exuberant Joys of Children and Kittens: Tips for Success
The truth is kittens and children are both adorable. I could sit in front my computer for hours watching videos of curious tiny felines and bouncing happy toddlers but the question is can these two peacefully exist under one roof? With patience, dedication and understanding I wholeheartedly feel that both adorable little creatures can successfully share the same living space. Our family personally adopted a young kitten when my son was a small toddler. Now at age nine for my son and seven for my cat, these guys are the very best of friends. You can usually find our cat, Tucker, sprawled out my sons bed at night or sitting next to him while he does school work at the kitchen table. It’s natural and easy and these two could not be separated if I tried. Was it always this beautiful? Absolutely not! I remember many times having to ask my young toddler to leave the kitties tail alone or to stop feeding the cat his cheerios. I even remember a certain disgusting instance when my two year old thought the litterbox was a small sand box and the smelly clumps were Tuckers way of making a poop castle. With patience, dedication and a lot of empathy we were able to persevere through the rough times and truly enjoy our relationship with our cat.

Remember to always meet the cat where they are at. Happy purring!
