We have two cats. One for 8 years and the other for 3 years. Before the babies, I used to feel playful with them and enjoy them being around but since the girls were born, I feel more like they're underfoot all the time and demanding too much of my attention. After taking care of the girls, working and being there for DH, I feel I don't have much left to give for my cats. DH is still very close with one of them (Picus, our 3 yr. old Maine *** has always been more his cat); Ashley, our 8 yr old, has never been as social. Anyone else run into this problem/have your feelings change towards your pets after your LO(s) were born? I'm hoping it will get better once I'm getting to STTN again and have more energy.
