I had a siamese mix , that my hb rescued from a very abusie home when she was about 5 months old .
When I got pregnant with my first baby , I was a bit worried at first , because the abuse was carried out mostly by the former family´s little son ( or rather the parents let him get away with it ) , but once he was born , I realized quickly , that I had worried for no reason .
She LOVED him , slept next to him from the start and actually saved his life once , when I accidentally had locked her out of his bedroom and she started pawing and scratching at the door and meowing .
At first , I told her to stpo , because I thought , she just wanted to get in there to lay with him , but she became hysterical , so I went to check and when I walked in the room , he was laying there , not breathing and lips all bluish already . So , if it wasn´t for her , he wouldn´t be here today !
Needless to say , I never stopped a cat from laying with one of my babies after that .
