6"-8" telescopes or pearlscales are as small as they get, sorry.

Good luck finding Siamese dolls.

But no fish is fit to live in a bowl we all agree on that right? I have read of people who keep healthy Bettas and when there friends who keep bettas in bowls come they ask what it is and can not grasp it is a Betta.

Yeah. Those are really hard to find so when speaking in general about goldfish speak about the common ones.. Nobody gonna automatically think "oh yeah a 4 inch Siamese Doll" they are going to think about the telescope eye, black moor, etc. you said fancy goldfish require a minimum of 20 gallons... You never said very small species of 4 inch ones so we assume you mean the more common types

I think this myth is hilarious because it is so wrong. The myth most likely came from people not knowing what SIDS was in the old days, and wanted to blame SOMETHING to make themselves feel better, even just a little bit, so the cat was a good culprit.

I don't know if this has ever happened, if so it's very rare, but the only way that a cat would smother a baby is if the cat smelled milk on it's mouth and wanted to lick it off, or by cuddling with the baby. If the cat smells the breast milk/formula on the baby's mouth and decides it would also enjoy a taste, it might sit on the baby's chest and lick their mouth. If the baby is too young it turn itself over or can't move because of the weight of the cat, it might be possible for the cat to accidentally cause the child the stop breathing. The cause of death would be from the cat's body being heavy enough to compress the baby's chest so much that it couldn't take in any new air.

The cat getting into the crib to cuddle and sleep next to the baby because it's warm and soft might possibly cause death from the cat's body covering it's mouth and nose so it can't breathe. That would also only be possible if the baby is young enough that it can't roll over or move it's face away.

My cat Munch is very protective of our son Lucian. He will sleep in Lucian's bedroom and they play together every day. Munch watches over our son like he is the baby's keeper or something! It's so sweet.

Here is a picture of Munch sitting close to Lucian after he fell asleep in the living room. He got tired after playing with all of his toys, which are scattered everywhere! The other two are them playing together.
