I welcome continued opinions.
I need to have a tricky conversation with this person (not related to the cats) and want to know if the general feeling is that a person with 15 cats is probably not very stable, or a little off.
I think so, but I was wondering if I was being unfair. I also am not sure how common or uncommon it is to have this many cats.
I think we all have at least one thing where we could be considered "a little off"
I wouldn't be afraid of someone with 15 cats and a cat-fenced yard
To tell you the truth, I kinda think the dog owners that take their babies to the doggie circus-type things are nutty
I think the "crazy cat lady" is a stereotype. Right now, we have 5 (3 unexpected kittens
). I'm not seeing it as too many to handle. I always had barn cats growing up, at least 15 at a time, only a few would come inside.
Cats multiply quickly... I know, duh, right? But through freak circumstances, our little stray got knocked up twice before we could get her spayed. It happens... and we were actively trying to get her spayed both times! Anyway, if we hadn't found homes for the first litter, we would now have 8. If mama cat had 2 large litters, and we didn't find homes, we could
have 15 at this moment in time.
But you bet your bippy, I'd be trying to find homes, it's too much for me and 2 littles.
I'd love to get some cat-proof fencing, so I could keep the kittens we have now
