is it safe to keep cats around babies? i've been told they can transmit diseases or something like that?
is your cat up to date with his shots? then no why would he be a danger for a baby? cats do not just carry illnesses and pass them around just like that.
Are you perhaps talking about Toxoplasmosis?
Well your cats scratch the babies.
I was 7 yo when we got a stray kitten, I also had an older brother and none of us had health issues cos' of the kitten. Get him checked by a vet and everything should be all righty.
