Well...my blood pressure spent a good amount of time being way high while Whazzat was a baby with Molly this summer. Whazzat NEVER bit or scratched..but boy he should have!! Also, we're rescue him but he'd come RIGHT back to be tortured, it was stressful for me but I would call Molly a rough toddler. She'd never been rough with our older cat, but with Whazzat she discovered she could pick him up and wanted to hug him all the time....hugging generally meant squeezing the crap out of the poor lil dude. I would in a heartbeat do a kitten 6 mos and up though.
