sorry to hear about your cat ilduclo. We had a cat for 18 years and I still miss him, so I know how it feels.
our cat is pretty good, but very playful & mischievous. She gets into lots of trouble and we're pretty sure she bit through a lamp cord.
I do miss "my" dog though. I wish we could have both, but the dog wants to chase the cat and having both seems like a disaster waiting to happen. He's back home but getting fat
