Motherly Advice

Like I said in my last post, when you get pregnant, everyone is ready to offer up advice. When my best friend and confidant cat, Luna, heard I was going to have a baby, she had several helpful tips. Who better to listen to than the mother of 6 grown kids?

Here is her advice:
1. When picking up baby, best way to hold is by the neck using your teeth. This seems to calm them down and also immobilize them.
2. Immediately after birth, chew off the umbilical cord and eat the placenta for extra nutrients.
3. When baby is naughty the best way to correct baby's behavior is a quick swat (claws extended) and a hiss.
4. When baby is old enough to leave, pretend like they're not yours anymore and ignore them as best you can.
5. To clean baby, lick it thoroughly. With girl baby, be sure to lick their bottoms front to back.

Gee thanks Luna. Not sure if this advice applies to me, but you never know until you become a mother what will work...
