A safe space for your cat and baby by baby-proofing the house and setting up a designated area for your cat.
Introduce your cat to the scent of the baby before a face-to-face meeting. Use items like baby blankets to familiarize your cat.
Always supervise initial interactions between your cat and baby. Keep the encounters short and positive.
Reward your cat with treats and affection during interactions with the baby to create positive associations.
Stick to your cat's routine as closely as possible to reduce stress. Consistency is key during the adjustment period.
Ensure your cat can't access the baby's crib. Create a separate, safe sleeping environment for both.
If your cat displays concerning behavior, consult a veterinarian or animal behaviorist for guidance.
