|I'm not sure what to tell you. A lot of people either don't understand that cats and kids can co-exist (to the point that Boris' rescuer made a point of informing me about the myth of cats causing SIDS), or are just the selfish type.
In this household, we are committed to keeping our kitties when kids arrive, and when people mention it, we do tell them that abandoning your cat just because you're in the family way is pretty stupid. After all, most families we know did not get rid of their dogs after having a baby, and dogs are a lot more work in terms of time than cats are (my cats love attention, but can usually adapt to my schedule). I tried dog ownership too, and having to walk a dog 3-4 times a day was too much for me. I'd rather spend that time playing with Boris and Gracie indoors.
