My cat has just come back from the vet yesterday afternoon and has been very stressed and insecure since she came back. I am 19 weeks pregnant and had a GP visit today to get a referral for my 20 week scan. I mentioned being broke cause of vet fees for the cat and he starts asking me about if I know the risks with cats and whether I wash my hands after patting her etc. He then went on to say "its probably better if you are hands off till after baby is born."
As I sit here cuddling my very insecure cat who is in need of a lot of reassurance I am left thinking "yeah ok dude, that is totally possible right now. My cat will totally not hate the baby when its born if I stop touching her just because of it." (note some heavy sarcasm there).
Am I the only one that thinks that his advice is totally OTT? Its not like I am cleaning her litter or anything. I also get the "get rid of the cat" comments from people I know. It annoys me. Im not going to get rid of a family member from paranoia.
