She si going to be the main character in Thursday's "Catnap" story in the Paws & Reflect thread.

Once we move to a bigger house with more land, I'd like to get a couple more cats (girls) and a Papillon. But right now, the boys keep me on my toes.

I have three but one lives with my parents. I think four would be my perfect limit. Even if I had the time and money to give to more than four cats, the chances of cats not using the litter boxes increases with each added cat (according to a vet). I also don't think more than four cats would get as much quality time either. Plus, if I don't stop at four, what's to stop me at eight? ten? fifteen?, etc. Before you know it, I would become a hoarder.

Nope, finances or not, four is where I would draw the line. Plus, my Lovebirds need SOME attention too

How did you decide on how many is right for you/what things factored into your decision?
I voted MORE THAN 10 as if I could I would have a houseful of cats! I just love them so much!

My 3 are actually enough for me BUT I may be adopting the Church cat in a month or so as someone has frightened her so much she is very afriad! IF she tests negative to FELV/FIV and Vet thinks she is healthy I am going to give her a home with me. I would also love to adopt the poor Mommy kitty who so desperately needs a home but I just do not have the money!

1 for me. If Joey ever needs a playmate we can go over to Rena's house.

I have my 2 boys Lukie & Rufus & would like to have a kitten for them to help raise. I usually have fosters in the house but want a permenant addition but I am waiting for that special kitten.

I think the most I would want to end up with is two. Roxy needs someone to keep him occupied. Right now though I don't really have a permanent house and I would like to wait until I set in some roots before taking on that responsibility.

We just had 1 for so long, I don't know what it would be like to have more! If (when?) I get another cat I would like to be able to have 2 so that they have company.

I liked having one cat, but now I really prefer 2 cats. I never knew how much cats enjoy having another cat buddy around until I read it here on TCS and then adopted another critter. I cannot imaging owning more than 2 cats. Even if I could afford more than 2 cats, I don't know how I would ever be able to focus that much attention on each cat...like 6 or 10 of them.

If we didn't have 3 dogs I'd probably want to have more cats. I just love my 4 girls to death. When I was at my lowest they were the only thing that kept me in this world. I love our dogs too but they are a handful. Good thing we're moving to a bigger house with a huge yard soon !

If the conditions were just right and I had enough room etc. I'd have two. -a girl under each arm so to speak.

My ideal # of cats would be 2 but as you can see I have FIVE.. I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world BUT later on (LONG time away).. I would like to go back to 2-4 cats..

Only 2 girls? I sense you have more "girls" who are waiting in the wings.

Well, I didn't want to get all greedy.
