I've been playing around with numbers for the past year and a half and I'm thinking 8 feels like my comfortable point. But you see my username soooo there's no telling. LOL!

I had two cats at first and felt I needed more action around the house. So I got another one, a Balinese. He brought a lot of action hahahaha and having 3 cats was wonderful, but my nr 3 needed more playtime than the original 2 could give him, so I welcomed number 4.
In future I think 3 cats is my maximum. Since summer my dog (used to be my brother's) lives here and 5 animals really feels like a lot and some days (especially when it's their shedding period) I just feel like a cleaning lady.
But I am very happy to have them around me.

2 at once is my limit.

I don't have time to give attention to more than that many cats. Especially with 5y/o and 2 y/o boys hopping all over the house.

I have had as many as 18 in the house at one point, which
anyone with any thought processes will recognize is an
impossible number in a small home, but I moved and couldn't
place the (very socialized) barn cats and couldn't leave the
barn cats to starve, and so they came with....

In any case, I am down to 4. I have also recently lost the
last of my 4 big dogs, so the place is feeling REALLY empty,
and I find I like it. I think I would prefer 2-3, which is where
it stayed as the house number for many years, but I think
even numbers would work best for what I'm observing. Mine
(including barn cats) used to hang out, sleep, eat in pairs,
and sleep in like-colored piles, blacks with blacks, torties with
torties and reds, pointed cats all together. I don't know why,
but they still do, so I'm leery of having one being the odd cat
out. So, I guess it will be 2 from here on out. I really enjoy
having littermate sisters. Now if I can just convince some
obliging queen to have my dream kitties in the same litter we'll
be great!

Right now, we have 6 and it feels a bit out of control. Our house is big enough and they all get along (mostly, but thats another post for another day lol). All are rescues and technically, one is a foster, but I see us probably keeping him, but who knows? If the right opportunity comes along to adopt him out to a good home, we probably would. All things considered, 4-5 is "just right" for us.

2 is right for me, most of the time. I'm currently living with my GF while I wait for rennovations to be finished in my new apartment. 2 is right for her also. so for the last 3 months, and for about 6 more weeks, 4 seems to be working.
