Good question : We have nine cat. They are pets that we love. They eat dry cat food, can food, balony, chicken, fish on a regular basis. When I cook chicken in a micro wave oven I give them some.
I found a reasonable priced vet to neuter, and spay them. They are happy animals indoors. We clean a lot of litter boxes. One room is just for their litter boxes. Takes work to keep the house clean, but we work around the house anyway.
They play and important role in our lives. Since we have a daughter in a wheelchair, the cats are good entertainment.
God Bless You Precious Heart.
