How to Keep Your Baby From Getting Scratched by Your Cat

Babies and cats can get along, but that doesn’t mean they always will. Just one pull of the tail and your cat could end up scratching your baby. Here are some tips to keep that from happening.

Only allow your baby and your cat to interact with your direct supervision. You can remove your baby from the situation as soon as you see your cat’s ears fly back or he flicks his tail in annoyance.

Make sure your cat finds it easy to get away from your baby. Provide him with plenty of spaces off the floor where he can sleep in peace.

Start teaching your baby early the right way to pet the cat! Although his motor skills won’t allow him to do it correctly for a while, you can increase your child’s chances of learning if you start early.
