My 1 yr old won’t leave my cat alone


I really love all my babies. Cats and child included. So my baby won’t leave my one cat alone. And my cat just sits there. My 1 year old will lay on top of him. “Pet” him which is more like a rough pat. I’m sure it’s not super hard because my kid does it to me. But I just feel so bad. And if I try correcting my sons behavior he just laughs at me. I just dont want anything to happen to either of them. But they won’t stay away from each other
