Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Jul 12, 2015
Milo is the third cat our family has had, and is, by far, the most family-friendly. Our first cat was a stray; our second, like Milo, obtained when a family friend's farm cat had a litter. Our family since getting Milo has also included an American Staffordshire Terrier (a rather large dog, usually considered a pitbull) and two children in grade school. Milo gets along with the dog swimmingly, and the two have built up enough interspecies communication that he's able to let the dog know when playtime has been too much. Milo can be very cuddly (and sheds a BUNCH), but is also more than content to be left alone at length, as long as his food and water are replenished daily. He is an indoor cat, and has gotten a bit lazy as he has matured, so he's gotten a bit roly poly in the past few months. He will also be VERY loud if his food or water bowl are empty, or if his litter box needs changing. And he is VERY active come night time - very fond of knocking over glasses left out on the coffee table, or of nibbling at toes that wiggle during sleep. Otherwise, though, he is a wonderful, loving addition to our family!
