The fact that we have dogs may not seem like a big deal, but I am not a dog person. I am a cat person and we have had our cat Cherry for 13 years now. She is friendly, but not too friendly. She is cuddly, but not too cuddly. She is very low maintenance, and our interaction occurs mostly in the morning when she comes in to my room for a bit of a cuddle before I get up. Then we're mostly done for the day. Easy!
