I got a cat, she was 2 1/2 years old. She has been an absolutely wonderful cat!! We believe she was previously an indoor/ outdoor cat or strictly outdoor, when we adopted her we made her strictly indoor. She has adjusted so well! We had a cat already before we adopted her, his name is Whiskers. It took Sweetpea awhile to adjust to her new brother, (who was only 1), but after having Sweetpea for 1 year now they get along great!
