I have been lucky with my pets they have not really been interested in Anakin until now. When i bought him home from the hospital i was very cautious about the cats going near him but they never wanted to go near him because they didn't like the crying. They thought it was the worse noise they have ever heard. But you do need to be careful with dogs and cats being around a baby, they have been known the accidently suffocate a baby. So please remember that it is not wise to let a dog or cat in the cot with your baby while he or she sleeps..
