I have a big, beautiful American Longhair male cat named James.
Health problems notwithstanding, Cyrus is close to the perfect dog. No chewing, begging, excessive barking, NEVER had an accident in the house, etc.
James the cat begs food, harasses the dog, knocks stuff off my bureaus and counters and spits hairballs like no tomorrow.
But he is my cuddly wuddly kitty who snuggles with me every night!
