One cat household v. multicat household - Cons

When you play with one the other(s) look so hurt and dejected.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

I have a hard time trying to give attention to my shy guy, Leo without Teddy butting in.

Re: One cat household v. multicat household - Cons

It's ironic because I looked up while I was reading this (with Stormy in my lap) and Misty is on the living room rug, sulking. (Crouched, ears to the sides, sulking.)

However, I think that has more to do with the fact that Stormy is in THE CHAIR -- on my lap, but still in the chair -- during what Misty considers her chair time. (The computer chair is the most sought-out chair in the house, don't ask me why.)

Cinderella and Cleo vie for position at night time. If I pet one after I lie down in bed and the other sees, I feel like I have to pet the other one. Then, the other one sees, so I sit up so I can pet both at the same time and they both see that. Geesh!

Cali, Cinderella, Cleo and Charlee

Yep. Two hands, two cats. Do the math.

Actually Misty and Stormy are pretty good about sharing people time now. But when they were younger, if I was petting Stormy, Misty just HAD to butt in.

The computer area is definitely the most contested are in the house. Fay will come to the back of the chair and scratch it. When I swively aroung she hops up all the way to my shoulder. Mia just hops on the desk and starts circling the monitor and walking over the keyboard meowing.

-Twice as much noise when they run around at night
-Twice as many cats running over your face at night
-Twice as many cats on the counters/tables/all other forbidden areas

Pro: Twice as much love.

I find it a little sad that I cant provide the fun, games and training that another cat would give her. Apart from that, Im happy to be her sole receiver of affection.
