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

OMG. Cuteness overload. May go into diabetic shock. The cuteness… the cuteness…
December 19, 2011 at 8:15 pm
Nah. Baby was sleepy and cat was hungry.
December 19, 2011 at 8:52 pm
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
December 19, 2011 at 8:59 pm
So the parenting philosophy in that family is, “meh, we’ll let the cat get this one”?
December 19, 2011 at 9:02 pm
That cat looks scary.
December 19, 2011 at 9:16 pm
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.

That cat obviously knows how to do the Vulcan Mind Meld. Impressive.
December 19, 2011 at 9:26 pm
If you pause it at 0.53, it looks like the cat’s about to swallow the baby’s head.

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.

@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.
December 19, 2011 at 10:46 pm
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.

Too cute! I’ll bet Towleroad readers are thinking “Now can this little criiter manage to silence crying homophobes too?”
December 19, 2011 at 11:09 pm
Super cute! Let’s not over think this one comrades. Cat was concerned, baby fell asleep.. I’m sure no one died.

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.

Cat “heals” a baby by laying on the paw.
December 20, 2011 at 2:19 am
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

Basement Kitteh lookz for font’nell. Push hard.
December 20, 2011 at 6:10 am
Oh, there’s the off button.

Definitely basement cat

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.

@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.

House cat. Owners probably keep kitty spotless. My sister’s cat used to climb in the basinette and sleep next to my nephew whenever he was fussy or colicky. Bingo The Cat would purr like a motor and baby would calm down and then fall to sleep. As my nephew grew, Bingo and he were inseparable. It was beautiful.

The feline is reacting to the movements. Unaware of all the anthropocentric interpretations of his animal reflexes. You gotta love how we humans push our cultural thingies into the animals. By the way, you shouldn’t let a cat play with a baby because you think he is helping the kid to sleep.
December 20, 2011 at 5:00 pm
Of course cats know how to lull babies to sleep. You can’t suck the breath out of a baby if it’s awake. Duh.
More seriously, if that cat isn’t declawed, that kid has really irresponsible parents.

If the cat had been pure white or any other light color coat that photographs better, the reviews would be overwhelmingly positive
December 20, 2011 at 5:44 pm
that was cute! Love cats. Babies on the other hand…..

The cat was cute, looked like the cat was putting himself to sleep too.
But the baby? Anyone else get the impression the kid was flashing gang signs?

My large-boned Tom (12 years old) does this same thing to his stepsister (about one-third his weight)as they sit side by side at my elbow. She can be a bit testy when my cats hassle her, but she does not seem to mind at all when brother Teddy lays paw on her, though it looks a bit oppressive to me.
