We had them for 12yrs , Great cats. Recently adopted 2 cats they are great we love them. While at the shelter I saw a man unable to have cats but he loved cats so much he was fostering a cat The cat stays at shelter & he donates what he can , but most of all he can visit and cuddle with his cat whenever he likes. I found this to be a great program for those that can not have a cat..:)view less
