How many cats is too many?
My cousin found a piece in her local newspaper advertising kittens for sale. Being around my cat has sort of put her in the mood so we went along to the breeders home to have a look.
This breeder had about twenty odd cats in her small two bedroom apartment. I counted about four litter boxes. No beds or toys and one large litterbox that was used as a feeding bowl for all the cats. The kittens and their Mom was kept locked in the bathroom for their own protection. The house was clean but the room the litterboxes were in had a strong smell. There were cats fighting everywhere.
My cousin decided against buying the kitten and instead went to her local shelter, but we can't get over this woman's house. I have one cat and it takes all my time to give him the attention he wants. I know people here have more, but how many is too many? The all can't get the attention they need from this woman.
I can't get the cats out of my mind. I'm sure the woman is good to them, but can it be good to be around that many cats?
