If you can believe it, my DH and I have 5 (yes, five) kitties[:I]. He is a bit of a softy and already had his four when I met him and I already had one. The minute I was pregnant I stayed away from the litter, and to be honest, I haven't really gone back to it. My issue with the kitties when I was pregnant is that they are always everywhere (they have the advantage of numbers), their fur is everywhere and they love attention. They make me crazy, but what can you do[}:)]? Luckily all except one have a healthy skepticism towards the baby, and of course he loves them! Furry, soft, stuffed animals that move and jump! He laughs every time he even sees them! The closest they come to him is walking around the edges of his crib, and only one will do that. I never thought about a connection between them and the prematurity, that is very interesting thought. By the way Deborah, Congratulations on your big news[:D]!
