As the newest member, joining just tonight, thought I would say hello.
I have a 12 year old black and white cat called Snuggles. She is a house cat, and loves being spoilt. I liked and agreed with your comments about the fur being everywhere. A lot of my furniture is also black, including the suite, which can be interesting.
Not only has she been sat on as she blends in, but if the seats are not wiped, then clothes become as hairy as the cat!
Hope to speak to you again soon.
