We only have one cat now, Allie, who we call Allie Cat. She has been with us for over year and three months now. She sleeps with Bob and is his cat. I myself, prefer dogs. Don't think we will get another dog. She is a good cat and stays outside most of the day and comes in at night. My next door neighbor gave her to us when she moved away. Allie Cat is approximately three years old and reminds us of Billy Bob.
