We have 2 Cats ( strictly indoor ) as well as 3 Dogs ...
Six. One male and his harem of 5 ladies. They are all indoor. Mollipop goes outside in my arms only during the summer. Muffin and I go outside and sit in the swing at night during the summer. Other than that, they don't go out. I don't believe in letting my cats outside.
@CalTriTwiAmb4 , Yes we have a houseful . It is not overwhelming for us . It can get hectic at times though . We have a fenced in yard for the dogs so we can just let them out to run around .. My husband and I both have always had cats and dogs .. I guess it also helps that I am a housewife so there is always someone home with the animals ..
Hi 2Cats4me, You have a houseful as well. Is it manageable for you or does it become overwhelming? I have 3 cats and one small dog. Fri I will be adding another cat to our family. Cat ownership is new for me I began adopting my rescue cats in 7/13. 20 years a go I had 2 cats but sadly I was allergic ending up in the hosp. 2 time with allergy induced asthma. Now 20 years later my cat allergies are gone! I always wanted to have cats again. I have had dogs since I was 2. As an adult on my own I always have had 2 dogs and couple times 3 dogs.
Itching too. For us we just keep remembering that currently we're able to provide extremely good care for the two but most likely, not for three. Also, not having time to do proper introductions is an issue as we're both out of the house now for nearly 12 hours a day at times (sometimes, he gets home earlier but, not by much).
2 beautiful indoor cats.
I'd like to know the secret to keeping the count down too! I have an itch to get a 3rd.
We feel OK (financially and emotionally) with six cats. We've had six (not the same six, but close to it) for well over 20 years and we're pretty much used to that number. We manage the vet bills OK and their kitty supplies OK as well. We've had some cats with high vet bills and, so far, we do OK with them.
Hi Winchester, Just the response I was looking for. Do you find having 6 cats overwhelming financially and or caring for their daily needs overwhelming? Are you reluctant to tell non cat people how many cats you have?
One cat is all I can afford right now. She gets everything she needs and wants, I don't know if I could do that with another kitty. I also had a bad experience with more than one cat in the past a couple of times. I will just stay with one happy kitty and I'm happy too. No secret here, just facts
Hi LaRussa, What is your secret to keeping it at just 1 cat?
