Because my family already has quite a few pets (2 dogs, 2 gerbils, 1 rabbit) my dad seemed pretty unwilling to get another cut after our last cat, Mystery, died last Spring. I suppose my mother must've worn him down.
Anyway we ended up getting a 4 month old black cat who has yet to be named. Hes pretty playful and sweet and I'm pretty happy to have a new pet to play with.
Hopefully we can name him soon, but if you guys have ideas feel free to post a comment on it.
