I feel like I have extra kids around the house, they're not happy unless they are making a disaster out of something.
How do those of you that have several cats deal with having that many terrorize your home?
Have you considered finding new homes for some of the kittens? I think even Momma cats get sick of their own kittens, so maybe having so many different personalities is part of the problem. And of course, it is easier to find a home for a kitten than a cat, even though cats are generally much more well behaved!
If this is just temporary frustration, it will pass. But kitties can live 20 years. Are you sure you want to keep them all?!?
I recently has 11 cats, including lots of fosters. Since I am down to just my three, I am enjoying my time with them so much more! Festus and I spend more time together, and Gar is on my lap now, giving himself a bath! And I have even gotten Jasmine to be a little tamer, now that I can focus on her. I certainly don't know your situation...but it is ok to admit that 12 is too much, and give some up. I think of it as sharing the love, instead of keeping it all for yourself!
