We have two cats.
When I moved in with my wife, she had an ankle biter that wasn't housetrained. Needless to say that rodent went to an animal shelter to be adopted out. Fortunately it was a breed that was highly sought after.
Then a cat adopted us. On the exact day I was to take her in to be spayed, she gave birth to four kittens. Yes, we are that stupid. We thought she was just putting on weight. In our defense four kittens don't make a cat that much bigger.
We only gave away one, but we are down to the two cats now.
I like big dogs a lot as long as they OBEY.
