My name is Kathy and I have a 100lb+ black Lab named Carly, she is 2 years old and she thinks she is a lap dog. I also have a cat who is about 5 years old, his name is Baby Cat (how original). He is kind of on the heavy side but we love him just the same. He is very independant and does what he whats to do when he wants to do it. However when I am sitting on the lazyboy chair he likes to curl up on the footrest.
