Precious is 11 years old, spayed, front paws are declawed, gets along with my dog, not sure how she'd act with any other dogs. They lay next to each other at the foot of my bed every night for awhile. Loves to lay on your lap and snuggle with you, but does get feisty if you pet her where she doesn't like or if you pet her for too long. I don't think she'd like to live with little kids, I think she'd rather be with calm adults & calm older kids. Likes to sleep in bed right next to you. She likes the top of her head rubbed and under her chin, but not for too long. Only usually meows to let you know when she's thirsty or hungry. I have a 3 level cat condo they can have that she loves to lay on.
