Is This Cat Really Soothing This Baby To Sleep? — 6 Comments

  1. I’ve seen that video before and wondered then as I wonder now, is it a British video or a US one and does that cat have claws? My other thoughts are what a gorgeous little cat, I laughed when he/she had a little nibble at the baby’s head. If the cat has claws I am full of admiration for her carer for including the cat with the baby. If the claws are gone then my opinion on that is well known already.

    • I am not sure whether it is the US or UK video, myself. And claws did come to my mind as well. You can see, though, that this cat places his front paw on the baby’s head very gently and then he sniffs the head. Cats seem to like the smell of babies just feel like the smell of their owner if they are on good terms with their owner 😉

  2. What a beautiful cat! It did look like she was copying the baby’s mother in comforting him and looking towards her now and again for approval that she was doing it right.

  3. hmm its interesting never seen that before. Maybe the cat senses what the mother was doing and yes i agree with all you said. i tend to agree. Its amazing how cats can sense things they are amazing animals.

  4. Yes, the cat’s paw is imitating the parent.
    The touch, though, is what the baby needed to soothe him.
    Cats are so, so smart.
