"be careful, cats are known to smother and kill babies"


          

this is what 2 old ass ladies at my job said to me when I told them I had a cat.

I couldn't do anything but LOL at them. It's some old wives tale "Cat's Eye" movie bullshit but a lot of older people believe it.

My wife was heated on some "that ole step-n-fetch it eyez-uh-bees-uh woman said that shit didn't she?"

Whats crazy is dogs maul babies/kids all damn day but people are still clinging to this old wives tale.

so.. what other old ass tales have you heard that make you shake your head?

but 6 months in and these cats have been incredible (other than meowing to wake him up when they want to play with him). never once have they gotten in his crib, gotten aggressive with him (while he tackles them and grabs their tail etc). obviously we keep a close eye on them, but i dunno where this cats will kill your baby while dogs are perfectly harmless narrative came from.

only bc they like to sit on my chest when it's bed time or wake up time and i thought maybe a cat did that to someone's baby and it died and that's where that came from?

it's plausible but totally preventable

my fam was looking at me like I said we had a midget trapped in a cage.

My cousin came to visit and I forgot to tell her about our cat. She went in the bathroom and came out and screamed "WTF, grabbed her coat and bounced"

but if I had 3 pit bulls with spiked chain collars she woulda been like "awwwe, look at the wittle puppies"

My Great Nan who was born in Costa Rica once told me an incident about a cat hanging off someone's ceiling ( somewhat ninja like I presume), and then it pounced off it and clawed out the eyes of some young woman..

Even as a young kid I couldn't take that story serious.

Everyone on the native side of my family has cats and through numerous kids being born and raised in their presence I can safely say that cats ain't a problem.

did when we had him. Breath hard continuously with an open mouth, like you're tired and out of breath; do this in a house or closed in space. See what your cat do?! our cat started coming (as in crouching forward with slow to steady steps) at my mouth, focused on nothing but my breathing, it seemed. with my son watching, we didn't know what the hell was going on. i hurried up and stopped the breathing. tried it another time, same reaction by the cat. so i can see the tale having a tangential relevance, hmmm..

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Before I got my dog, my cat would sleep in my room at night. He'd get up by
my head and half-sleep in the sphinx position until I settled down.

I tested it one night and pretend to be asleep to see what he'd do.
After a couple of minutes, he'd go down to the end of the bed and sleep.

Momma cat: If I lay down on the couch 'cause I'm feeling "off" or something or if I'm genuinely sick, she'll come over to me unprompted and lay next to me like she's guarding me.

Asshole cat: She will do the same except she'll lick my leg if I'm feeling wrong and when I fall asleep she'll bat at anyone that come near me (especially other cats and the dog).
