How many cats is too many?
I had one cat for 7 years and recently rescued another one,I am curious about what people think is too many cats.
You'll know you have too many cats when your neighbors call in the Board of Health and A.S.P.C.A.......and maybe even the producers of "Hoarders."
I'm not a cat lover, so one cat would be too many for me.
I have two dogs. Two is exactly the right number for me, especially when we're all trying to lay on the sofa together.
Depends on where you live and how much time you have to devote to them. If they are strictly indoor dwellers, your nose may tell you when you have too many.
I think 2-3 cats is normal. Most people i have seen do have 2 - 3 cats. As long as you can handle them well no number of cats should be too much.
I think it depends on how many you can support. That support includes, but is not limited to, a place to live, food to eat, healthcare, a clean litter box, exercise space, play time, individual time with caretaker, and hiding places for alone time. I have 4, two rescued from the animal shelter and two that found their way to my patio, one starving and one only 6 or 7 weeks old. My cats get along well 99% of the time and for the other 1% I keep a spray bottle of water sitting on the table. All I have to do is pick it up and they scatter and stop the growling, hissing and semi-aggressive behavior. They also share one litter box and we've never had an accident. I use Arm & Hammer Multi-Cat Unscented litter. That's Unscented NOT fragrance free, there a difference and it's a BIG one.
My vet has 26.
