New guy checkin' in

Hi everyone, I just found this forum today, I have 6 cats, yes 6, I didnt really choose to have that many it just happened

I only had 1 for 10 years, I found him as a newborn, apparantly abandoned by his mother, I heard him screaming and went to look expecting to find a full grown cat it was so loud, luckily I knew someone who had a cat with a new litter, she took him in and I got him back after he was weined

The other 5 are a different story, my neighbor kept bringing dogs and cats home, and not caring for them properly, he would leave for days at a time and leave them with no food or water, no houses for the dogs tied up to trees etc, the authorities would not do anything but give him warnings, finally he was evicted and abandoned the cats, I got them spayed/nuetered except for 1 and kept them outside, the 1 was pregnant so we took her in and let her have her kittens, she had six, we adopted 5 of them out and kept one

one day a dog from the neighborhood got loose and came onto our porch and attacked one of the cats, he would up with a broken shoulder blade (scapula?) and we had to have his arm amputated 1 inch higher and he would be dead, after that we decided if we were going to keep them they had to stay inside, Im having some issues with them now as anyone with more than a few cats can imagine, hoping Ill learn how to cope with some of them by reading here.

welcome to TCS! i totally understand about not 'planning' to have 6, & it just happening. i never planned to have FIVE! i was happy with my 4, but rescued a feral kitten, & haven't been able to rehome her... so i guess she's staying!

Hello and welcome. I know how it is - all my life I had 1, 2 or occasionally 3 cats,and told myself that three was my definite limit. Then I rescued two more, and it went on till now I have seven! When you love cats you cannot stand by and see them hurt, abandoned and lost. See you around the forums - there is a wealth of information and friendship here.
