We do not go looking for cats, they seem to find us. Precious is my oldest at 15. He was a stray hanging around the daycare where I worked back in Arkansas. I'm not really sure how old he is, 15 is how long we have had him, we think he was not quite a year when he attached himself to me, but he has always been a small cat, so it is hard to tell. He is the grey and white cat on the left. Tiger, on the right, we got as a kitten because we were cat sitting him as a kitten with his mom and her litter while their parents were out of town and fell in love with him. Precious is our smallest cat and Tiger is our biggest.
There is no need to buy a pedigreed cat, just go to your local shelter and rescue one. If you are worried about the cost, that is what you would have to pay to get the cat fixed anyways. If I were to choose a cat, I would pick an adult cat, especially if you have children. They are tamer, gentler and more loving, not to mention already house broken and won't be climbing your curtains!
