It’s a good idea to introduce children to the family cat when they are still toddlers. Not only are you teaching them to love and understand the joys of having a pet around the home but also not to be scared of animals. It’s a matter of teaching your child by example and simultaneously telling them. ‘Don’t pull the cat/dog by the tail, but stoke her like this.’ And immediately offer praise to let your child know that the cat/dog is pleased and shows pleasure by purring or wagging its tail.
