What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
Tommy is my 3 1/2 year-old, gray-colored, American Short-hair cat. His brother is Dublin, (orange cat in pictures), and they have been together up until November 2020. Out of the two of them, Tommy is the alpha- and he asserts his dominance. He's calm, cool, and collected though; a pleasure to be around and very low-maintenance. He's an indoor/outdoor, but can be inside for as long as he needs to be. He is well-adapted to many environments, after having to move from house to house since he was young. He will make himself at home wherever he goes, and isn't prejudice with humans. He loves everyone. My concerns for Tommy are outdoor access and other animals. Tommy loves being able to go outside, I've never prevented him from being an outside cat. He will sometimes get sick if he has to stay in longer than he wants, forcing himself to throw up and sometimes peeing in plant pots, (even if there are several litter boxes in the house). He communicates well about what he wants, and will let you know when he needs to go outside or needs food. Tommy is dominant, but not food-aggressive or territorial. He doesn't mind submissive cats, but he doesn't particularly like dogs. Tommy and Dublin do NOT have to be together, in fact they may be much more calm separated. Over the last year and 1/2, Tommy and Dublin have been vying for dominance, and Tommy is quite aggressive to him now. (Seems to be only Dublin, however. I've seen Tommy interact with other cats and he isn't aggressive towards them). Tommy is a great cat, doesn't require a lot of attention or needs- just make sure he has plenty outside time and space to himself. He's doesn't like to be held or overstimulated; he is a cat's cat.

How many hours is your pet home alone each day?: 
He is alone for maybe 3-5 hours maximum indoors. When he is not indoors, he is outside- and prefers to be.
