I am going to a Halloween party tommorrow because this lady I used to know has a cat for which she needs to find a new home and when I talked to her about the cat she invited me to the party for the kids. So we might be getting a new kitty soon. He is an orange declawed cat about 6yo. She says he is good with kids and her Jack Russel so I think he will get along well here. I just hope he's short haired; I can't remember if she said he was. But with Justin's allergies a long-haired cat wont work.
