We've had Zoey for quite some time and to be honest we could never house break her, so she stays outside. She has a bad habit of peeing on the stove if she gets inside, needless to say, this is not good behavior.

In general she's very nice and affectionate. She is very good with strangers and despite always being outside, she has a gorgeous thick coat that everyone enjoys petting. It doesn't take much for her to become the center of attention.

She's not great with the dogs, but they don't fight. They are indifferent to each other and kind of go their own ways.

Being outside, and us being on a farm, we of course feed her, but even that is unnecessary. She's grown very big on mice (and strong) and is a great hunter. She keeps the barns and garage clear so that mice aren't much of a problem, even in the spring and summer.

We haven't had success with her as an inside cat, but I've heard of others having no problem. She makes for an excellent outside cat though and she's wonderful with strangers.
