I already have a baby

The other day I was sitting on my couch with my husband and my kitty. We were watching a movie and snuggling in. I sat there and looked around me and thought “I already have a family” and “I already have a baby”. Those of you who aren’t cat people probably will write me off as crazy, and that’s ok. But I LOVE my cat. Like if I didn’t have a husband, I’d be happy to go down the crazy cat lady route in life. I snuggle her, she takes naps with me, she cries when she’s hungry and she tells me when she wants to go outside and roll around in grass. She is my baby. No, I’m not putting her in strollers and walking her around the neighborhood (although I would if it were socially acceptable).  🙂

Spending the last 2 years without her was SO hard, especially when going through sub fertility. I knew that having her back in my life would help ease the pain of not having a baby in my arms. I was right, having her makes me happy. This past month has gone by with a lot less anxiety and craziness and I attribute that to having my kitty by my side.

So, until I’m able to hold my real baby, I have my fur baby, Scutero.

  1. I feel you on this SO. MUCH. My boss is always telling me stop calling my cats my babies, but she just doesn’t get it. THey ARE my babies. In fact, I was thinking that after surgery I could carry Dewey around in one of those baby wrap things that moms use for newborns…that way he could rest his little leg!

  2. You are not crazy! I love my cat and have told Daniel that I would run out in front of a car to save her life if needed. He thinks that thought is reckless. Lol!! Xo

    • Absolutely! We had to spend the first 16 months of our journey without her, and the past 2 months have been so much better since I have her to take care of and cuddle 🙂

    • Thanks! I reflect often on how different it was when we were away from our kitty compared to being with our kitty. I am so much happier on a day-to-day basis with her. She makes ordinary days and normal triggers smoother 🙂
