From what I’ve heard you only have to stay away from the cat box. So your husband has to change the box while you’re pregnant. I’m not a doctor though. But we have a cat already so I don’t know what we’ll do other than my husband will change the box. Perhaps there’s someone here with better info.

sugarcloud :  Thank you for caring for this little guy! In the city where I am from there is a waiting list for neighborhood feral cats. I know how ridiculous it sounds but with all the restaurants/bars around there’s a large rodent population. Businesses and people are applying for cats to care for outside so they stay in the area and hunt mice. Could it be possible that this was someone’s intention with this little guy? Regardless I’d take him in to see if he has been chipped and try to get him fostered/adopted if you can’t do it yourself. He seems too domesticated to be a full time outdoor cat.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU for helping this lil guy! I am a cat lover, and I am grateful for people like you who are concerned for the safety and welfare of homeless pets! I hope he finds a very nice person or family to adopt him!

sugarcloud :  Not a silly thought at all. And pets ARE good for kids. They are added stress with a little one on the way, but sometimes they can even be a help for kids while adjusting to a new baby (they have their own “little one” to take care of.) (<— can you tell I am on team keep the kitty? ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Like PP said, I definitely don’t think he’s feral (truly ferals cats wouldn’t go near you. it would take them months if ever to get used to handling) He’s been with humans and still needs them. He’s not ready to take care of himself  yet either.

I wanted to join futuremrsdubbya in thanking you for helping this little guy!

You are a good person! Thank you for being so kind and caring for the kitten. The other bees have already given you great advice, I just thought I’d pop in to say thank you for having such a kind heart.

sugarcloud :  well kittens who were taken really early fro their moms don’t know how to groom. But more likely he is simply in survival mode, he just can’t afford the energy it takes to groom and doesn’t have a safe space to feel relaxed enough to groom.

But he is such a gorgeous kitty! Thanks for the udates! Keep ’em coming! laughing
