    I bought a new pram for LO on Saturday and it's a lot bigger than his other one so I need to leave it downstairs in the kitchen. I kept the other one in the hallway but the new one won't fit there.

    Now my cat keeps jumping into the pram and he is driving me nuts! I keep moving him away from it and telling him no and then half an hour later he is back in there! I've tried putting tin foil in there as I read cats hate it but my cat isn't bothered by it.

    Anyone any ideas?

    Ahh I didn't know about the cat nests! I shall order one of those. I haven't got a raincover for it yet. Need to buy one when I get paid as the pram was 2nd hand and didn't come with one. Both good ideas though. Thanks :)

    It just depends, our male ginger cat is huge in height and size but he is literally a big pussy! wont fight with any other cats, surrenders immediately... basically is a big fat, lazy cat called ginger! would of been as well calling him garfield :haha: he has never bitten anyone, is a big softie, puts up with emilys constant annoyance towards him and just sleeps all day and eats his meals :haha: there was one time he cosied himseld up in emilys pram when she was a few months old... one swift hit set him straight! although he is quite a timid cat, and you only have to tell him off once and he will not do it again. He knows not to go into emilys bedroom too, luckily! but cat nets for you pram is very good too if nothing else works... yes, the world does sell cat nets for your pram! :rofl: xx

    I'll try putting a bed sheet over and see how it goes, although I'm pretty sure he will somehow turn it into a bed in the pram lol! I've got a car seat raincover that I bought off the market for the other pram and it seems quite big so I'll try that too :)

    It wasnt like a proper smack or punch or anything, it was a swipe at his backside to tell him to move :haha:

    Someone once told me to try foil. They don't like the noise when they jump on it.
