Hello! Longtime animal lover here, with a long history of cat ownership. I currently have three sweethearts: a sixteen year old blind cat, a twelve year old black cat, and an eight year old calico who thinks she's a snake (she just...likes hissing. It's weird.). My kids are trying to talk me into another pet, like an iguana, but that's probably not going to happen any time soon. I don't trust the cats not to traumatize it!
