Pumpkin Pie was the first cat that my family owned. We got him when I was a toddler, and so I have fond memories of growing up with my black cat. He lived to be 17 years old, and had very few health issues, if any. He went regularly for his distemper shots and boosters, and needed little else in the way of medical care. We had chosen to declaw his front feet, which I feel affected his personality somewhat, and he was always a little grouchy. He tolerated me as a child very well, and never bit or scratched out of anger or malice.
