I have two cats, a ferret, and a boyfriend in an 850sqft 1-bedroom apartment. We have plenty of space, as far as I'm concerned. The layout is fantastic, so the litter boxes (which take up more space than the cats) don't bother me. They have an entire hall closet (double doors) for their litter boxes, now that no one is confined to the bedroom. No humans have to step on tracked litter, and the boxes are out of sight (but easily accessible for regular scooping). In the past, I have lived in places that sort of forced placement of the litter boxes in out of the way, inconvenient areas, and it was a pain to stay on top of litter box detail. I don't want them underfoot, but I need to have ready access to them to stay on top of regular (usually twice daily, but always at least once daily) scooping. If i ever build a house, I am including a "litter closet" - it's really one of the major reasons I picked this apartment. As we have three other closets (two walk-ins and a large linen closet), I don't feel like I'm "wasting" closet space. There's room to keep the broom and vacuum in the same closet, and a shelf along the top where we keep laundry items (no in-unit washer/dryer, but the trade-off was worth it).

I think I could easily have several more mellow cats in this space. My lease won't allow it, and my budget certainly won't, but I can see how it could be done.

I live in loft style apartment about 800 sq feet. I have two cats and I think that enough for me.
If I had a bigger place I would likely add another cat or two.

Tortie, I have a very similar situation (minus the rehoming thing) I totally have been wanting cats for 5 years now. I have tried to be so patient and my husband insisted that we wait until we were financially stable (I agreed). Finally we're better off this year and after seeing me turn into a mess over simply -thinking- of kitties and start asking if he wants to have a baby (a human one!) his opinion on cats did a 180.

But we're in 600 square feet! I got a large cat tree so I hope that'll give my little monkey meezer space to play.

4 bedroom home, the backyard is 2 acres - fenced. I own 3 dogs, a cat, and reptiles all inside pets. There is a lot of room. The dogs love running around outside, there is just not a substitute for that type of exercise and freedom, we still take them on walks daily but the backyard is wonderful. We also grow fruits and veggies.

Well...I have seven cats, two cockatiels, and two bettas in a double-wide trailer. =) I couldn't say how many square feet we have here, unless I woke up the sleeping parentals, but...it's a nice-sized trailer, and it's pretty new, too.

Well, my sweety and I just got married in July so we are combining homes...

We all live in his house which is about 1000 sq ft 3 bed 1 bath - He has converted part of the garage into a pantry type area where I can store things on shelves. This area will also serve as a "caged" area if I have any more rescue's come in that need to be apart from the others for a while.

The other part of the garage will become our bedroom someday.

We currently have 11 cats and 1 bearded dragon.
5 humans - 2 adults and 3 teens/pre-teens. ranging from 11 to 16.

We have the framework up for a 20 foot by 10 foot (approx) cat run so our kitties can all enjoy going outside and stay safe.
