I know how you feel. I keep getting the urge to get a kitten....but then I remind myself they grow up! Besides...I don't have any trouble having new kitties find me.

After 7, whats another mouth to feed?

I wish we could get another one, but not until we are financially stable and have a bigger place! The next one we adopt will be an older kitty from the local HS

For right now, 5 is my limit!
Cappy is driving me nuts! I've never had a kitten like him.. he's the nastiest kitten I've ever met!

When I think of adopting another kitty...
I think of the potential vet bills and know that I can't afford to do it.
If you have the money for future vet bills and vet emergencies....
go for it.

Get another, I've just purchased my 8th He's coming home early April, a chocolate-silver Ocicat.

I figure 8 won't be any different to 7.

I'm tired of the 'kitten' stages I want a nice, calm adult male. There has been a GORGEOUS black male at our local HS who is probably about 5- just stunning, I so want to bring him home!

I say if you have the meens, go for it!!!!
I get that urge every year or so. right now I recently got a ...I could say special but more troubled cat who needs a lot of work, so until there is a bigger place on the horrizon, 5 it is. Though 2 cats ago I was saying 3!!!!!

oh and besides, your looking at a middle aged black cat, those are the ones that have a tough time finding homes. Because black cats are bad luck and kittens are so cute & always stay kittens . only one of mine was a kitten, and an older kitten at that. 3 mostly black cats here!

got 2 people mixed up, but all the same about the black cat (s)

I encourage anyone looking to adopt to ask at their local shelter to meet some of the kitties who have been there the longest! Oftentimes, they aer overlooked just because of age or something simple!
post #19 of 26
yup after a while it just doesnt matter, 22 mouths here right now.of course by next week we will be down to 17 with kitties goinghome, lol

i know a few good persians LOL

Zoey is asking for a sibling but I am still looking... lol.. it only took me like sixth months to adopt her ...
post #21 of 26
Aww the kitten is lovely. bet you cant waite till you bring him home.

i think adding another cat to 7 cats is fine as long as you can afford it , give it time and the room. i have 7 of my own plus 1 stray , 1 pregnant and 1 whos looking for a home so 10 all in all.
my best mates cat has just had kittens(long story) this is her fourth litter in 3 years. and i finally got through to her , and she is getting her spayed once the kittens are 6 weeks old , there now 3 weeks old. so thats 1 good thing. but now i have to convince her that the male she has ( who was from the second litter) will mate with his mum if his not neutered . but she dosnt seem to think so as he has shown no intrest. but for now she is starting to listen.
she did ask me if i would like 1 of the kittens. but because i dont condon what she has done i have said no , but they are lovely and the only time i ever went to someone for a kitten rather then rescueing or a stray was when lilly lost her litter and someone wanted rid of there 4 week old kittens. so i couldnt bring myself to take a kitten from her when there are so many needy kittens. or do you think im just being silly ? lol

Ahhhh....it's feeling like Spring in Kansas and the mind turns to babies!! The spring kittens are being born right now and the shelters will be filling up by mid April. You must have your psychic kitten hat on!!

Go for it and POST PICTURES!!

I'd say go for it!! if you can do it... and do adopt from a shelter of some sort. Those kitties need so much love...

This is why I volunteer. I can't bring another home right now, my apt complex won't allow more than two... and while SOME tenants might be able to get away with it, I can't... my windows face the management office!! So, I volunteer at the county shelter to get my 'fix.' It helps... other than the strong desire to take them ALL home...

Go for it... bring another lovely kitty home...

I think I have reached my cat limit at 2 cats. I don't know how all of you with more than that manage it Mind you I think Radar is the equivalent of having 5 cats, the amount of energy and mischief he contains. I am definitely not getting any kittens for a while. I have told my colleagues that if they ever hear me say that I'd like a new kitten to remind me about the dark circles under my eyes and kitten scratches on my arms and face (from Sonic running across me while I'm asleep) that I have at the moment.

But sure if you can afford and have room/time for another then I don't think 8 can be much different than 7, not as noticeable a difference as going from 1 to 2.
