I always think having two of each is good, can't bear to see my pet alone

you can have the whole jungle if you want :) that's what i would do if I won lottery. Get a jungle or at least huge shelter abandoned animals, birds, cats, rabbits, fish .. all kinds of pets aside from snakes and tigers - these ones can take care of themselves :)

I'm happy with just one. Right now I'm supporting two, because my younger sister has a cat, and I kinda got stuck with buying food and litter for both of them. I don't even like my sister's cat. But I like having just one, because I can devote more of my attention to her, and I don't have to worry about rivalries with other cats, or hearing those loud, yowling fights in the middle of the night.

Hi, I've only got two at the moment as I live somewhere quite small, the most I have had at any one time was 7 when I lived in the country. 3 where adults and 4 were kittens of one of my cats, the most cutiest kittens you had ever seen, they were long haired and a delicious cream colour! I would love to have a big country house with loads of cats, dogs and probably some livestock!

LOL it is possible really, if everyone in the house likes them too so we could help each other feeding and took them to the vet regularly. Unless you have allergies, having a lot of pets are fun :)

We have four cats, well they actually belong to my housemate, and if he had his way the house would be over-run with them, but I put my foot down, even tonight he begged me to get another cat, he wants to go to the shelter place to get a rescued animal, but we only have a small house and four is enough, he buys them cat toys and activity centres, they are his children. I love cats yes but four is enough. He has always said that if he had the money he would love to open and run a cat sanctuary, it would be his dream. He is cat mad and would rather have cats than a partner!

If I was rich, I would buy alot of land and put my house on it with a big barn. I would then take peoples cats, whoever did not want them and keep them on my farm. I love cats too. So I guess I could not put a number on how many cats as it would be alot.

I think they are only expensive for the first year. But if you keep them indoor it should be affordable

If I was filthy rich, I would live in a castle with 100 cats and kittens roaming all over the place. I would of course have a crew of live-in help to be changing the litter boxes, sweeping up cat hair and hairballs, chefs to feed them all, and a van and chauffeur for trips to the vet... In case of multiplication, don't worry, I'd have them all neutered!

I think having 3 cats is enough. I have enough time to give attention to the 3 I have and I fear getting any more would only take away from the ones I have.

Hi there...although I think 2 cats are plenty enough for my small home, all the neighbourhood cats seem to find me. Those who do not have homes are rehomed with people who can devote the time and attention they truly deserve.

One's enough! I've had my cat around my friends cats before. They didn't really get along.
