Hi all, I'm expecting my first baby in around a month and would like to prepare the cats as much as possible. I've been trying to find some sort of really long recording of typical baby noises that I could just leave playing to get them used to crying, not quite crying, gurgling, and just general baby sounds and not having much luck. The best I seem to be able to find is six minutes of a baby crying, and I can't really bring myself to play it over and over again. Anyone got any ideas? Do you think it's actually worth trying to do this to prepare the cats? Should I just man the fuck up and play the baby crying sound at least once a day or something?
I had all the baby stuff set up with balloons in it/on it and shooed the cats away when they went near. One did jump into the cot and got the fright of their life as they landed on the balloons. My two boys and cats are great friends now
