Thanks Em, please read my comments I made to Milly first before you decide. Cats can be very aloft and not friendly, as some say that is because they are more intelligent than dogs, I think dogs are more predictable and stable.
Thanks Milly! Our son and daughter - in - law had three cats, one big Tom Cat named Kramer, two Persian, Kloe and I forgot the other one's name. We would watch the cats when Scott and Erin went on vacations. I learned a lot about cats, both Kramer and Kloe were very unpredictable, each one would jump up on my lap. When petting them they would seem happy and content but in a heartbeat they would grab my hand in their mouths, not hard but I got the message and off my lap they went! Some cats are just weird, like some people.
