You cat may be curious or afraid of your new bundle of joy, so preparing your cat for the new baby will help reduce both your stress and anxiety as well as your cat ’s. Setting up rules, routines, and changes before the baby arrives will help eliminate your cat from associating the changes with the baby.

  • Set up a routine now that may be used when the new baby arrives. Ex: Set aside 15 -25 minutes each day to walk, brush and/or play with your cat. Follow through when the baby arrives (or ask a friend or family member to do so). This helps your cat feel that he is not being excluded from you once the baby comes.
  • Bring in the new scents that your cat will be experiencing, such as baby food, baby powder, wiping cloths, etc. Your cat can investigate these new scents and become familiar with them before your baby comes home.
