I still like the Stick Insect thread much better.
So do I and I don't even remember seeing that one.
But I do have some input for this thread, or maybe rather I need some advice on cats.
I was home all day today and with it been very nice sunny weather I left my front door open to let a breeze through the house, I was sat there in my living room when all of a sudden a black cat walk in and as I got up to get it out the little flea bag went up the stairs.
I followed it up into my bedroom and had it cornered, it was either me or him at this point as we stared each other up and down, I had the size advantage but his sharp claws made me wary from making the first move.
It felt like at least a minute while we were both stood there looking at each other waiting for a move, but I bet it was more like 60 seconds, my heart was pounding then all of a sudden the cat put his head down and slowly walked past me, went down the stairs and then outside.
I was tempted to kick it as it went past but I thought seeing as he didn't start a fight I would let it go and that would be the end of the matter.......
How wrong was I?
The little bugger waited a few hours until I left the house to pick the kids up from school and played the same game with my missus but yet again it needed well without any violence.
My problem now is that I hear cats are baby killers and maybe this one is coming in to have a fight with my baby boy, so what do I do?
I don't have a gun and with all this warm weather I don't want to keep my doors shut but how am I going to keep my baby safe from this flea ridden killer?
Cats are just the ***** of the animal kingdom. They'll act all cute and go into anyone's house looking to be fed. It knew it couldn't play you, so it left.

I just went upstairs and found it again, sorry but I booted it down the stairs this time. I can't have it coming in my house all the time......hopefully one little kick will make it stay away otherwise I would end up killing it if I found it sitting on my baby.
There's never any excuse to kick an animal. You could just have made loud noises and claps to shoo it away. put orange peel near the door it enters, that should keep it from coming in, but never, ever, kick it.

Seems you should be more worried about pillows (and parent's beds) than cats with regard to the baby.
With regard to unwanted visitors, all my windows/doors are screened. that's not to keep cats out though, it's to keep massive (and possibly venomous) spiders/snakes/bugs out*.
*Although when some do manage to make it inside I still catch them and release them alive elsewhere rather than kill them.
