Acquired: Pet store
Posted Aug 24, 2015
Although I am not much of a cat person, I have had cats almost always throughout my life. The only ones I have really been attached to are the ones who have a great personality.
Our current cat has a wonderful personality. She is very affectionate and patient. We have a 7 year old daughter who thinks it's great fun to dress her up in baby doll clothes and cart her around the house in the baby carriage. We chose not to de-claw our cat and surprisingly, she is very conscientious of her claw usage.
The cat is great with our dog and here's a kicker: she and our parakeet are friends! We can let the parakeet out of his cage and he hops around on the floor right next to her and she doesn't bother him one bit!
