Ya don’t wanna end up being the old lady who lives alone with her ten cats.

Two cats are good, one alone might get lonely but more than two is probably unnecessary.

If you want more cats, consider becoming a “foster”, taking in young stray cats, nursing them to make sure they’re healthy, then placing them with an adoption agency. Check with your local adoption agency for information on becoming a foster.

I would have a hundred of them if I could properly take care of them. I have found that one is about all I can afford and give a good amount of attention to.

two is enough.

As many as you can afford to take GOOD care of…

If you lived in the country you could have more, but two house cats would be okay. Three cats might be the limit without being “that” person.

This video is of “that” person:

theres a girl at my school who has eight cats and reads books about them

I personally would say one would be fine if I did not have a bad experience with one when I was seven.

See it was newyears and I just got one of those blowout things that make a funny sound

Long story short my cat didn’t like it
So he bit me in the eye…

@ Blippio: I’m pretty “cats” is not part of the answer to the ultimate question.

My family lives near the world’s most awful horse barn and we have had stray cats find us several times. (A local spay group has gone over to the farm several times to spay their cats, but the people there never seem to think that the barn cat population is a problem).

Our first cat, now 13 adopted my father when he on a work trip to western Massachusetts. She was a dumped kitten. Our second cat, Willoughby forcibly adopted us as we moved into our current house (he would just walk up the steps and meow at the door, following us around. He’s the head honcho now). Then a pair of tiny kittens came to our house right before a big snow storm, two little sisters. Lastly, again, before a giant storm a brother-sister pair of very young kittens took refuge in our garage, we think they are related somehow to the other pair, and Willoughby.

So we have six cats. They love each other and spend all of their time playing and sleeping together. This is it for us, as we don’t want to have more than we can care for, but I couldn’t imagine living without these cats for company.
