This is such an old "old wives' tale"; supposedly, a cat will smell the breath of milk on a baby's mouth, and then try to suck the air out of the baby's mouth/lungs - how ridiculous for anyone in the 21st Century to use this lame and idiotic excuse! I bet that if questioned further, with supplying the correct info and suggesting any help, she would probably come right out and admit that she just doesn't want the cat anymore!

I have been arond cats and dogs all my life and have never heard of a child being smothered. Lil Bit has to lay on my shoulder, touching bare skin and her whiskers tickle but that is all. Ask her to give you 1 verified instance of a cat smothering a child. She can't find one. The cat is 12 and probably needs extra care and she does not want to take care of it anymore. ---- Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> wrote: > On 08-05, Joslin Potter wrote: > > > 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. > > What a crock that is.
