American Shorthair Cats (an orange tabby in my case) are intelligent, independent little balls of fluff. They are generally well behaved but be sure to put limits in place...and be prepared to see the cat disregard them if they think they can't be caught. In the case of my Quincy, she regularly draws me into a game of fetch with some bread ties she's stolen from the kitchen!
Pros: Incredibly Intelligent, Problem Solving, Cuddler, Well Behaved (mostly)
Cons: Will push boundaries (especially if they don't think they can be caught), might try to antagonize the dog
