My husband had to put his cat to sleep back in July (right after my husband's birthday). In August we went and he picked out a kitten from a local rescue. Brought him home he is CRAZY. ok fine I can deal with this. Then one day the babys pacifier was GONE! the cat had ate it. Then nipples started missing out of the cabinet. then the baby would wake me up in the middle of the night to eat, I would search for the "bink" so he could have it while I was fixing a bottle. and it would be GONE again.
To cut the story short the cat steals the pacifiers from the baby and bites the nipple off of them. Then just leaves both pieces in the floor. I have even went so far as to get the binky leash the cat will still get up next to Liam (the baby) and chew the nipple off. Pacifiers are 3.97 for TWO and we go through about 3-5 a WEEK! not counting bottle nipples that he eats! Which I pay 3.98 for two of those. I fixed him of the bottle nipples I now wash them and they go in the fridge!
I know so many pets get stuck in rescue and the pound for stuff like this and I don't want to do that to this kitten that WE CHOSE! But good grief i can't afford this!. and on top of it here I am sicker than a dog and the baby starts crying. I go check on him and he is crying because he (the cat) got in the bedroom and stole the pacifer out of the babys mouth! Now I either wait till 12 (midnight) when my husband get off work, or load all three kids up and go to walmart for binks! (I am going to try waiting since i have one in bed already!)
Has anyone ever dealt with this and how did you stop it?
and NO I can not take the pacifier away from the baby as much as I would like to he has a case of reflux and the pacifier helps keep everything DOWN!!!
