dog and new baby

Getting Fur Family Ready for the New Baby

Our baby is due this summer. I'm concerned how to prepare our pets for the arrival.

I have a 4-year-old cat who has been our little princess since we got her at 8 weeks old. She is spoiled absolutely rotten and is used to getting attention when she wants it. We also have a 150-pound Malamute/Wolf mix who is an absolute sweetheart but is incredibly hyper.

I am afraid of the dog crushing the baby and I am afraid of the cat having fits of jealousy. What should I do for them?
