to the cat lovers

My cat is pretty much like my baby now. We sleep together every night and she is very protective of our house. She does not like when anyone else visits. Im nervous to see how she will act when my baby is born. So to everyone who has cats... how did it go when you brought your child home? Did you not let your cat sleep with you anymore (bc the baby will be next to your bed for a while)? Were they mean to them? Or were they just curious and got on with their lives?

My cat loves to snuggle right now. She is currently laying over my belly. My cat is pretty mellow so I haven't put much thought into it. I think I'm just gonna hope for the best.

Our cat used to sleep in our bedroom before pregnancy and during. Also have 2 dogs. Whilst pregnant I stopped all animals in bedroom at night, as a precaution. Got them an extra comfy bed to sleep on and an extra blanket on the sofa. They got used to it quick so wasn't such a shock, new baby and being forced out. Cat didn't take any notice of baby though.
