I've always wondered why cats make good babies. If you ask most girls and women, they'd probably admit to dressing up a kitty sometime in their childhood. I sure did. I had the best cat when I was younger. His name was Sophie. Yes, I realize Sophie is a girl's name, but we didn't realize she was a he until it was too late. Anyhow, I dressed up Sophie in doll clothes, wrapped him in a blanket and put him in a stroller or cradled him in my arms every day. That cat put up with so much. And now, my daughter does the same thing. Well, not the doll clothes yet, but she picks up Socks like a baby, places her over her shoulder, cradles her like a baby and now puts her in the baby buggy she got for Christmas. It's so funny.
I read once a while back that cats are actually good pets for women who are infertile because the way they look or something somehow meets that "baby need". Not completely, of course, but it does help. So, there is something scientific about cats and women.
So, our kitty does put up with a lot, but she's a very good sport about it. And I figure, God gave cats claws and teeth, so if they get too tired of being a baby, they can just leave.
