Cats And Babies Videos Gallery — 4 Comments

  1. I’ve often wondered the same thing about these cat/baby pics. Are they declawed? Good question. Well I can say I have seen a number of these types of videos from other countries, especially Japan and China – so I guess those cats are not declawed. It’s an pbvious question if the video is from north america. Asides from that though, the ones I have seen from other countries are very sweet and beautiful and I have seen quite alot of the. The cats are very tolerant in some cases but in others I have seen the cat to be very curious of the baby, yet gentle with it, and in others still I have seen the cat being almost protective of the baby. These are genuine and beautiful videos. The western/US ones are hard to enjoy if you dont really know if the cat is declawed to I’d rather just watch the other ones. Perhaps they are not in which case I would be missing out in some sense. I particularly love the curous cat and baby playing with eachother. I’ve seen some very sweet videos like that. I have seen an older cat play with tiny kittens and be very careful and gentle with them. I know these cats very well and they live together grown up now. But when 2 of them were being bottle fed (they were found outside alone) – I remember Nushka, the 1 year old, still very young but larger girl cat was so curious about the little ones and would sort of want to play with them and she would roll next to them and reach her paws out gently to them being ever so careful not to hurt or scare them. I swear its one of the sweetest things I ever saw. I have a photo somewhere – terrible quality but still. Now I think that similarly a cat, even though curious and playful, knows full well a baby is very fragile and can also see how important the baby is to the humans. I think this same gentleness I witnessed between cats and few week old kittens applies. The result being that the kitty will be very careful and sensitive to the situation. That is just one situation where the cat is excited and curious – probably the more questionably risky one – whereas if they are sleeping together or the cat is being protective then its different and less worrisome on the surface anyway.

    • Nice point Marc. Cats do seem to recognise that they are dealing with a baby. That makes sense because you often see interspecies mothering. You see dogs mothering kittens and so on. It comes naturally. This is probably why the cats in the videos are so tolerant. They are treating the baby as a giant kitten. When you see mother cats with their kittens they are very tolerant of their antics.
