The Cat and the Newborn

My two kids

As I mentioned last night, our cat Pearl has been surprisingly good with Harry. Pearl is four years old and is used to getting all the attention she wants, she drinks out of the sink for crying out loud! We were a little concerned that Pearl would be aggressive towards Harry. Fortunately that really hasn't been the case.

Pearl has been great with H-man. She was totes scared of him at first, but is slowly warming up to him. When we first brought Harry home every time he moved Pearl would jump back like two feet, ha! She doesn't do that anymore, and is kind of protective of him sometimes. When I put Harry to sleep in his crib Pearl will sit in the nursery for hours just watching him. Of course I pop my head in every few minutes to make sure she hasn't jumped in the crib.

I've never caught her in the crib, although I did catch her on the changing table...


Silly cat.

With the arrival of Harry we definitely have been giving Pearl less attention. I feel bad but there just isn't enough time in the day to give everyone what they want/need. During the day Pearl is usually fine since she's sleeping a majority of the time, but at night she gets a tad needy. I try playing with her as much as I can but sometimes she acts like a little brat and jumps up on the counters or table just to get some attention.

I'm hoping that once Harry starts to play and be more interactive with Pearl she'll stop being so needy. If I should be so lucky!!
