Prepping for your first child is a beautiful and exceedingly stressful transitional period. Between making sure your home isn’t an infant death trap, buying Instagrammable onesies and wondering whether their or not parental instincts will kick in, expecting parents have a lot on their minds. But that’s no excuse to keep pets in the dark. Kitties should always have a say in any major life changes you might be making. Whether it’s marriage, children, moving, taking new job or going back to school — consult your cat. They will not be even a little bit helpful, but it’s important to keep them involved.
