You should tell her to tell her friend that she needs to come out of the dark ages and stop believing that old wives tale about cats smothering babies. I can just see a cat put one paw over a baby's nose and then a paw over it's mouth with the intention of smothering it. And about the whole licking the babies mouth to get the milk, that's crap but even it was true the baby can still breath out of it's nose. I just can't see how it's possible for a cat to smother a baby. And cat's can't suck so they can't suck the breath from the baby. And even if they could suck the baby's lungs are stronger and bigger than a cat's so it wouldn't be able to suck enough breath out of it to smother it. Tell your friend she shouldn't hang around such stupid people.
“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain > Date: Fri, 5 Aug 2011 15:40:57 -0700 > From: joslinir...@yahoo.com > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] No Good Rotten People! > > I don't get that either, I have a friend of a friend who is looking to get > rid of her 12 yr old cats becuase they are having a baby and she just can't > take that chance of the cats smothering the child, while I'm sure it has > happened to people, come on, my cat was more scared of my daughter as a baby > than anything, and never touched her bottle, there are things you can do, but > I guess her mum is just persistant in her getting these cats out of her > house.
