Anna. Both of my kids ( now grown and adult ) were snuggled by our cats. Granted, they were not Savannahs...the breed had not yet been conceived, but Siamese, which we were told were baby killers. We watched the first night. and when my son cried, the cat meowed at my wife and demanded she check the baby. As has been said, it is an old wives tale, and so much untruth.
