Personal Story (not an official 735 endorsement): Prior to having Kyle, Kevin & Lori Briere had 2 short hair domestic cats named Princess & CJ.  However, when we learned we were to be blessed with Kyle, we needed to found a new home since we had family allergies with this breed.  Princess & CJ were given to NEAS and were ultimately placed with a wonderful family in Marblehead.
