I've been keen to get a kitten after one of our cats died at easter - I have a week off work next week and was planning to do so, but now I'm having serious second thoughts about how it's going to work with my 22mo DS.
Has anyone got a new kitten while they have a toddler? Our remaining cat has grown up with DS, and is really amazingly tolerant of him. But DS is so much rougher than he used to be - I'm worried that a kitten might get seriously hurt. And the kitten will probably defend itself. DS is not violent towards our cat, but is not always gentle.
We got 2 kittens when DS was 4mo and as we drove away from the RSPCA with them DH said we both must be crazy, but it turned out to be an excellent thing to do.
Do you think it's a really bad idea for me to go ahead and introduce a kitten into our house, with a 2yo and an existing adult cat? Have you done it yourself - and how did it go?
