As you all know by now, due to my other posts, I have four cats, Keylah 3, Jerryn 2, & Lily-Jade & Jessavyn 12mo+. I love them all to death and they're not my problem. My problem is, I love cats too much. Lily had babies. She had four babies, which I posted about a while back. They're all 3 months old now, vaccinated and ready for homes. That's the problem though. I don't want to give them up. I want to keep them. But that will make my total eight cats and I'm not sure I can cope with that. I'm coping now pretty well and that's with 6 of them indoors and one in and out, but i'm not sure how i'll be as they get older. I have a 3 bedroom house, and a huge backyard, I live in the suburbs, away from busy roads as i'm in a court. I also have a dog who is cat friendly. The pro's are that I can afford them, I can look after them, I love them, they'll get a good life with me, but the con's are do I have the space? i'm only legally supposed to have 2 cats (the other 2 are seen to be my "relatives" cats... they don't do any harm and do have bells on their collars) can I give them enough attention? is it selfish to my other cats? also my real estate agent doesn't know I have pets, am I pushing it? So far, the kittens, Miah, Sin, Alex'n & Sapphire are all indoors, along with Jess who is an indoors cat 99% of the time by choice & Lily who is indoors until she's de-sexed on the 2nd (she's been booked in for a month) Jerryn comes in and out, Keylah for food, so sometimes I have all eight inside. Am I pushing it? What do you all think. Advice would be greatly appreciated. tomorrow I have to give Sapphire to my sister, but i'm dreading it, it's tearing me apart, Sapphire is a beautiful charcoal Grey Persian looking fluff ball with blue eyes, and she's sooo gentle and definite lap-bed cat. Sigh. what do you all think?
