My family has always been a cat family. We dabbled in a rabbit (a baby one that my cat carried in like a kitten one night) and had guinea pigs once (never again!!) but apart from that, only ever cats. I got my first cat when I turned 7. My parents decided 7 was a good age for taking care of your own pet. My sister got her first cat at 7 as well.
In our home currently, we have one cat. She has enough personality for four. We call her Meow, The Meow or Meowhead even though she is a very quiet non-meowing mog and her name is actually Nissa. Sometimes we call her that too.
She is crazy indeed but I love her to pieces. I cannot imagine life without a cat in the house.
