When raising a pet cat or being a cat person with lots of them playing around in the house, it is needless to say that they require constant caring. Having only them around you causes less headache than having kids along with them. Taking care of both of them while keeping them safe from each other can be really tiring even when you are sleeping.
Expecting a little one in your family is so much exciting and creates a happy environment. Your little baby will need constant caring and you have to watch over it so that nothing creates any unnecessary discomfort for them. Now you even have your furry friends running around and they even have their access to your bedroom where your kid also stays.
Cats are of a curious kind. Even if they see a string lying around, they will wait an unspecified time and suddenly jump on it. It is their nature. So no matter what, it is definite that your feline friends may jump or would want to play with your child. However, even if your cat has goodwill to play, they play by biting and scratching which is definitely a huge no for your child. Children are extremely delicate from their birth to kidhood. Your cat’s fur also may not be good for your baby.
They also tend to be awake during the night when you and your kid will be sleeping. In these types of defenseless moments, your cat may want to play and jump or go into the bassinet of your baby. To avoid these unnecessary incidents, it is better to have a sturdy cat-proof bassinet for your child. That way, both your cat and child will be safe and so you will be.

You don’t have to put lots of strength to put this together. This easily foldable bassinet offers portability which helps greatly while traveling.
