My daughter is 7.5 months old and I’ve noticed a change in one of our cats’ behaviour now that she is crawling. Anakin (our cat) will come sit in my lap when I’m playing with my daughter on the floor each morning. I’ll pet him for a bit but eventually get up so I can make breakfast. He used to sit on a chair, the counter or go to his cat tree while she crawled around and I prepped breakfast, but lately he’ll lay down 2 feet away from her play mat and has swatted at her once (no hissing) when she begins crawling towards him. If I try to move him he goes right back to her play mat. I’m so worried he’ll hurt her and don’t know why he’s making a point to get so close to her now when he clearly seems aggitated (sometimes ears pinned back) that she’s moving towards him...
