I was wondering how many couples have had pets before having children and saw a comparison?

Me and Steve got our baby girl, 7 month old now, kitten just before we got married. And oh boy are there stark differences in how we treat her! We even get mad at each other over how we do or don't treat her! Example: I'm too lenient with her, I let her on the table. Him, I think he doesn't let her run around downstairs (we live in a bedroom of in laws, downstairs is their living room) and keeps her couped up in the bed room too often.

Anyone had such experiences? Was it different then parenting or were there reflections in your techniques?

We adopted a cat ~ or, rather, she adopted us ~ shortly after we married and I had our first child about 6 years later.

Yes, there are some similarities. You have to be responsible and look after them properly, etc, but cats are very self-sufficient very quickly. Kids aren't! smile
