I know that a lot of us have barn cats, house cats, and just cats, LOL. How many have you got and how many is too many?

I currently have 9 cats and most of them have names.

Maxi is my oldest at 6 y/o. She's a long haired almost black calico.

Calli is about 4 y/o and is a short hair calico. She's an outside only cat and a great mouse/snake/whatever catcher.

Dusty is Calli's kitten from last year. He's a 1 y/o male, short hair and his color is hard to describe so I'll put a picture below.

Cotton is 1 y/o male, gray and white. His fur feels more like rabbit than cat. We thought he'd grow out of that, but not yet.

Of course there's Weeble, our newest kitten. He's a siamese (mix?) with blue cross-eyes and a bum leg.

Then we have 4 kittens looking for new homes. They're Calli's from her last litter and will make great barn cats for someone. There's an orange/white, striped/white, striped, and calico.

Here's Dusty, is there a name for this color? (Please excuse the junk, he makes a point of laying on the worst stuff!)

I guess when I run out of names for my cats, that'll be too many, LOL. They all get their personal "lap time" and are fed and happy.

We've got three.

One long haired "Maine Coonish" tabby boy named Keeper

One blue-cream point himalayan girl named Tiffany

One tortie-point himalayan girl who is insane (not kidding) named Sabrina (as if she knows)

Are we asking how many cats are too many for INSIDE or just in general?

(Jill, your's are all beautiful!)

We have four cats. All are indoor/outdoor kitties, although one prefers to stay inside 99 percent of the time.

"Homer" is our youngest, age 4, a Maine Coon, adopted from the humane society.

"Ted", "Splinter", and "Sweetie Pie" are all getting to that geriatric age being between ages 12 to 14. We've had them since they were kittens. "Sweetie" was a stray that we rescued from an old auction warehouse building. The night after we brought her home, the warehouse burned to the ground.

We just have one cat..she is my son's cat and 10 years old. But thinking on it a bit, my son is the cats pet.

Here is a picture of her.



We might get a couple of outside only barn cats this fall, but not sure. Could use the help with all the field mice.

One thing I do know, as long as Heidi rules the house we will not get another inside house cat.

OK currently I have 2 house terrorists seems like alot more when they are racing through the house a mach 10 in the middle of the night......both are grade siamese lynx point....for the person asking about the cat on the tub that looks to be lynx point


for the record each of my cats has about 3 different names depending on which mood they are in


I love love love cats so for me too many is a variable number if they can get along and have good manners I'd easily have 10 house cats.......ours are indoor only until we can get a cat pen/play yard built.......

my neighbor/friend has lots of barn kitties and several of them do come visit but they don't count as mine.

l'm not a cat person and wouldn't allow one in the house for sure. But we do have about 17 adult cats out in the barn we have no mice just moles which l guess they don't bother with. lf l forget to feed them they all hang around my legs and it looks like a big furry mess and scares me to death so l never forget to feed anymore. All ours were dumped off here by people driving by or left on the driveway in boxes. So rude. l talk to them each day but only have 3 that l will pet and hold which is a big deal for someone afraid of cats.

Last time I looked it was just one!
But with his antics sometimes you would think there were about 10!! Larry is a piece of work, just a DSH black and white with piercing yellow eyes. Mainly hubby's cat, but he grows on ya! Oh and he loves guests!!! We'll be sitting in the living room and he'll be sitting on the ottoman in the middle of the living room paying attention strait as an arrow as if you are conversing with him. Gotta love the little bug-ger. I feel sorry for the one legged crickets this time of year tho....they never go any further than the kitchen floor...and Larry gets his protien that way!
