Our cat is 2yrs old we got him from my Fiance's mom whom found him as a baby, nursed him back to health, and then declawed him in the front. She ended up being allergic. She let him outside all the time too. Now all Barney wants to do is go outside. He's not interested in catnip, toys, or being cuddly. Our roommate has two small dogs who Barney has recently stopped playing with. We have noticed that if we come home smelling like a friend's cat, Barney seems playful and actually rubs against our legs! So...is if safe to say, Barney needs a kitty friend?
