Just that, really.

When it was just DD1, we had a 5 seater Toyota for me, and 5 seat Skoda for DH ( yes, we do love our flash autos!).

But with the DTs coming along, I think we need to raid savings for a bigger cat.... sigh! Recommendations?

Thought about a Tiger?

Oh I was just coming to suggest a ragdoll or Maine coon but I don’t think they come with seats!

A leopard? Maybe a cheetah? Neither are particularly family friendly mind you wink

I hear that Scottish Folds can get quite big - plus they have those gorgeous faces.

This big enough?

How about a Ford Kuga? grin

How about a Lynx, they're about to be reintroduced to the UK apparently.

Mothers of large families who claim to common sense,
Will find a tiger well repay the trouble and expense.

Assholes wink

Lol i have two small cats and they're hard work! Cant imagine having a large one with strength and increased ability to take me down at the top of the stairs.

I don’t think pp have taken your request seriously, tigers...hmm

Anyway, Maine Coons and Norwegian Forest cats are pretty big. HTH

Car, car, car blush blush

Definitely a Maine Coon grin

JohnnyMcGrathSaysFuckOff Fri 10-Aug-18 14:51:56

Also Jaguar and Kuga are genius answers, as is Albus's gif

Any sensible suggestions? grin not holding my breath....

You're not going to recover the thread op. Best start another grin

I was going to say Norwegian Forest. Some tomcats are pretty large cats, if you go for an adult rescue.

I don't know if kittens are like puppies and you can tell eventual size from how big their paws are?

Lions are much better, the kids can hold the mane while travelling. grin

Or a Toyota Previa. Thats the best car I ever had.

My actual cat is half Maine Coon and is the biggest soppiest thing ever, so I'd recommend one of them also.

Make sure the tiger behaves himself at the table, though. Repeated café visits can get pricey.
