Or find a way for the child and cat to co-exist. It can be done. I have seen it. I have two long-standing, real-life, friends who had cats (multiple) first, then kinds. Or dogs; I have some of those as well. Point is, you don't get rid of someone because of someone else. How about teaching the kid to respect the cat? How about setting boundaries? How about that little word "no" once in a while? Taking photos of it indicates, to me at least, that they are not only not
trying to teach the kid basic manners and respect for other living things, but they are encouraging it (oh, how cute, let's take a photo rather than, oh, I don't know...reprimand the child and rescue the cat).
It's something of a symptom of the rudeness and entitlement that's becoming rampant in the world.
If I ever have a kid, which is statistically unlikely but not impossible, I will also have cats. I won't get rid of any of the cats because, as cat_whisperer
so eloquently phrased it, adopting a cat is a committment for life.
And I won't get rid of the baby if the cats take offense.
But I will teach them to get along. Because you have to do that in life.
