I think there have only been a couple of years in my life where there haven't been cats around, I have always wanted a houseful of animals, and no kids, although when I was first in my house, I wasn't going to have a cat cos I didn't want to be tied down. That lasted two days, until my neighbour asked me to take a cat in, she lived on the next street, her mum had died, and her mum's son said he woudl microwave her if no one could help, so I took her in. And that was the start of it really, due to fostering and taking on oldies that dont have a long time with me, I have had over 50 cats since then, and it is only 5.5 years ago!! Ironically, when I lost Charlie, the first cat, I then went to the local rescue the day after as the house didn't feel right, then my mum told me I was stupid cos Ginger didnt' have a home, so I picked him up the week after - so 10 weeks after thinking I wasn't goign to have one, I had 2!!
