Should You Get a Kitten When You Have a Baby?

You may have heard that people sometimes get a puppy when they have a baby so they can grow up together. You know dogs can be a lot of work, so you might have considered getting a kitten instead.

It’s definitely true that a kitten will take less work than a puppy, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some work to do! The biggest thing you’ll have to do is train your pet to use the litter box. That can be difficult to do if you’re busy taking care of your baby.

A kitten will find your baby interesting, but a kitten is also likely to be more wary of your child. However, a kitten is more likely to accept a baby than an adult cat.

Getting a pet when you have a baby is a personal decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. For professional advice, turn to your veterinarian Lakeville, MN.
