Not any more!! We were always a cat family. I can still remember all three family cats we had over a 40 year period. These all came at different times in our lives. Lets see - there was Tiger, L&P, and Biscuit. We were forced to give Tiger away when we moved - that was back in 1980 when I was a teenager. L & P (Named after a favourite soft drink - World Famous in New Zealand!!) and Biscuit, both lived long lives and died of old age or old age diseases. L&P died around 1995 to 1998 (Cant remember exactly when as I was not there). Biscuit died in 2015 and my parents, who are getting on years, chose to not replace him.

As much as I would love to have a cat now, my DH is allergic to cats and would prefer a dog. I HATE DOGS!! So we dont have any pets at all.
