  1. No fair! Everyone knows if you press on the baby's fontanel the kid will fall to sleep. Or die.

  2. OMG. Cuteness overload. May go into diabetic shock. The cuteness... the cuteness...

  4. not cute. creepy. i would never have let a cat be like that with my kid (if i had one). it could just decide to scratch or bite at any moment

  5. So the parenting philosophy in that family is, "meh, we'll let the cat get this one"?

  6. That cat looks scary.

  7. All I could think about as that cat put his paw all over that baby's face was that very paw was most likely recently standing in feces ridden, chemical laden cat litter. Now it's on a newborn's face. Nice job.

  8. That cat obviously knows how to do the Vulcan Mind Meld. Impressive.

  9. If you pause it at 0.53, it looks like the cat's about to swallow the baby's head.

  10. Stop hating on the cat. Cats can be affectionate towards little children - it isn't unusual for pets to understand they need to be more delicate towards toddlers, and yes, that's very cute. If instead of a cat, it was some hot hunk or some crappy female singer, you wouldn't be so bitchy.

  11. really creepy

  12. @HOHO - I hear you. My parents had a cat that seemed to know when my mother was having a flare of a chronic intestinal illness and would curl up on her stomach, exactly where the pain was, and just purr. Ma said it was like having a living heating pad.

    I vote for cute.

  13. Cute, yes. Gross, definitely.

    Those paws walk on the ground, stand in pissy and poopy kitty litter and Lawd knows what else.

    Next week we'll see a vid of the same baby with a massive case of pinkeye.

  14. Too cute! I'll bet Towleroad readers are thinking "Now can this little criiter manage to silence crying homophobes too?"

  15. Super cute! Let's not over think this one comrades. Cat was concerned, baby fell asleep.. I'm sure no one died.

  16. When I was a kid, I had a cat that was on mothering overdrive. Didn't matter whether it was a small child, puppy, rabbit, whatever. If it was a baby, she tried to mother it. She was a total sweetheart and even now, 35 years after she left us, I remember her with love and affection.

  17. Cat "heals" a baby by laying on the paw.

  18. Soft Kitty! Warm Kitty, Little ball of fur. Happy Kitty! Purr! Purr! Purr!
    Either this cat watches Big Bang Theory or that is a vidoe of "Sheldon Cooper" as a baby. LOL

  23. Have to stop reading comments on this site...

  24. God, the germophobes are so annoying—off to the pound with you. The ones who find the cat "scary" are just as bad; that's why so many black cats are destroyed each year, because people think they're somehow menacing looking through no fault of their own.

    It's a cute video. I do think the cat is probably waving its paw more due to the motion the baby is displaying, but I'm sure the parents know if the cat has a propensity to scratch.

  25. @SOO and KEVIN:

    Do you know how germ-ridden and gross babies are?! If that baby is crawling, you can rest assured that he's crawling in and around just as many germs as the cat. He's also likely to put God-knows-what in his mouth, which will subject him to far more germs than a cat sticking his paw on the top of his head.

    It's important to keep a clean home and maintain proper hygiene, but I can assure you that your level of worry/disgust/concern is in vain. And, if the baby isn't already around other babies/children, just wait until he is. That's when he'll become a REAL germ magnet. Stop fussin' over the adorable kitty cat.
