Bunz, Meet Baby.

One of the first things I thought when I found out I was pregnant was, "Oh crap. How will Bunz handle having a baby around? Is that pair even possible?"

Bunz Olsen isn't the cuddliest, friendliest cat. She never has been. Even as a little kitten she would bully the others around and do her own thing. She corners our guests and has been known to draw some pretty serious blood. Sounds like a good family pet, right?

During my pregnancy I read tons of articles on preparing your cat for the arrival of a baby. They all suggested things like carrying around a baby doll and treating it like it was real. Or sitting your cat down and having a one on one, describing to him what was about to happen.

Riiiight. Okay, that doesn't sound completely freakin nuts.

So instead of reading a, "You're a Big Sister!" book and sharing the ultrasound pics with her we focused our energy on decorating the baby room while she curiously peeked in through a crack in the door. Focused on allowing her last snuggles in our bed and endless amounts of attention. I guess we kind of hoped she'd just figure it out on her own.

And you know what? She has!

Turns out ol' Bunz Olsen is kind of a softie when it comes to babies.

(But don't tell her I told you that).
