Thank you so much Jill!

We've named him Digit - short for Digital - since all our kitties have photography names.

But, do you pinky swear? LOL. I visited the neighbor with the 15 cats -- 5 are inside -- and I think I finally got their names right! I suppose if I had a lot of acreage with a huge cat enclosure, then I'd have more cats. I would have to lose a husband first. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Wish my hubby loved kitty cats! He's not an animal lover by any means. Never had any pets growing up. He's terrified of dogs as he was nearly attacked by a doberman one time. We've had cats for most of our married life. He claims to "tolerate" Raiden! But, Raiden loves laying on his lap, getting petted and massaged.

Lovely looking kittens you have there. I hope they all get on well in the future! Did you get all of them from adoption events? Where are you from?

Besides what everyone mentioned about them getting along and having a working family unit without issues and being able to afford feeding, toys and other essentials etc.

I think the big question you need to ask is how many elderly cats with issues could you afford? As the problem with getting a lot of cats (or pets in general) around a similar age is they will all be elderly at the same time. Everything might be fine whilst they are still babies up until their prime but when they are elderly there are issues with things like kidney disease, higher risk of cancer and various other complications. As the other thing is after a while some insurance companies don't pay out and there are also premiums and many vets make you pay for everything up front and claim back.

It's up to you at the end of the day but I personally always try to stagger the ages of my pets to make it so I don't have more than 2 of the same age. After all the worst thing in the world is the guilt you feel over not being able to give a companion who gave you years of love the right care in old age.

Or at least that's how I see it with getting pets no matter how much I would love a house of puppies and kittens.

I was fostering one cat who was 6 years old, had my 6 year old girl, my 1 year old girl and then when Archer came, there was a lot of tension in the house. I think mostly because of the two 6 yo females having dominant issues.
Once I found a furrever home for my foster, it has gone back to normal. I am picking up another kitten, which I do not worry about, since it does not pose a threat to the older cat.

I definitely think the age and gender play a role in how everyone gets along.

Hi Everyone! Hope you are all well!

We forgot the password to the other username - so we created this account.

Anyways, I wanted to give an update on how things are going. We ended up having to re-home one of the kitties (Macro) as he wasn't getting along well in a multi-cat household it seemed. Caitlin's friend took him and with the updates we've been receiving, he seems MUCH happier.

We filled the void by rescuing a black cat who we've named Carbon. He is a MUCH better fit. Iso and Pixel have been together since day one, so they have bonded quite firmly, and now Digit has a playmate in Carbon (who can surprisingly keep up with him!)

To answer my own question - I think 4 cats is a perfect fit for our home. We don't have any children, and it just fills the home with immense joy.

Here are some photos!

Four would be wonderful. Running around playing and following the humans around...I am maxed out with two, but wish I had the resources and energy to have more. My two tend to wear me out. Everything has to be just so, exactly the way it was done the day before, or there will be unrest (pacing) and upset (throwing everything off tables and counters) followed by revolt (refusing to come in the house at night and beating each other up). If I do everything that they expect, they are perfect citizens.
