We lost two cats to old age and I searched high and low for the right cat that would be good with small kids. I came across Pandora at the Humane Society in January 2009. I was reluctant to take her cause she was a Siamese mix and I did not know how that breed would react with playful children. I took a chance and she has been the best pet anyone could ask for! She is loving and playful and VERY tolerant of the children. We can not thank you enough and now we will be back for another cat to fulfill our family.
