Cat + baby + crawling = kitty who is packing her bags as we speak.
Really, both of ours were somewhat curious about Gavin at first. They came up to sniff him a few times, but other than that, they avoided him like the plague. The sole exception is they think the co-sleeper is their own bed. Once Gavin started to roll over, I wanted to put him in that instead of on the bed just in case but I was having to wash the bedding EVERY OTHER DAY because they could not get the picture that it was NOT their bed. (We have really headstrong cats that don't "get it" even with the water bottle) Many a night I've woken up and attempted to reach over a sleeping baby to toss the kitty out of it.
Now that Gavin is crawling and having fun chasing them around the house, they want a new home.
He doesn't quite get the concept of gentle petting, so when he finally reaches them he tends to grab their fur or grab/try to eat their ears. They then quickly run the opposite direction and make it a game to him chasing them around the room.
The only thing I really dislike about cats is the hair issue - which especially becomes an issue once the baby starts crawling. I can vacuum every single day and he still gets icky cat hair all over him, around his mouth, and yes, he does swallow some of it.
