I've got 2 already. They sure like peanut butter. :-)
I've been all around the perimeter of the house and can't for the life
of me figure out where they are getting in. No gaps around pipes, no
holes in siding (that I can find). Grrr.
Come to think of it, a crawling infant or toddler plus mousetraps of any sort
mix a lot worse than cats and babies! Seems the wrong tradeoff has been made..
IMO, of course.
Can kitty come back? New kitty?

Not to answer for the mother, but she might be afraid
the cat would jump into the crib to "investigate" (cats ARE very
curious) and might accidentally hurt the baby.
This is a parenting problem, not a "cat vs. baby" issue. No child
should be left with any pet in an unsupervised situation until they
have been taught to behave appropriately around them.
Also, I don't know the details, but a dog shouldn't enter the house
until the baby has some sense of territoriality. Then the dog will
defer to the baby. If the dog is there first, or I would guess when
the baby is really young, the dog decides that he is in charge, and
expects the baby to defer. Which the baby will do for a while, but not
forever. Did I get this right?
