    Default Animal house

    Due to my uncle's illness that is not the point of this thread, my mom has added three new cats to her household for the foreseeable future. She already has two, resulting in five cats wandering the house. I warned my mom that five is right around crazy cat lady territory, but she wouldn't listen. Her existing two are indoor/outdoor cats, so the crowding is temporarily relieved. But the three new cats will all follow people around and investigate any movement like dogs.

    I am currently visiting my mom as I wait to move in to my new apartment, and have been helping out with the cats. Taking two of them to the vet recently was not fun, especially considering that my mom's old cats do not particularly like the new invaders.

    What's the most animals you've ever had? Have you ever owned your own zoo like Shorty, or have you only had a sane amount of pets?

    THE MOST? Well at the most I had 8 cats, 8 dogs, 3 peacocks, 23 chickens, 42 horses and a goat. At one time.

    I dunno what our current count is... still 8 dogs, 4 cats, dunno how many chickens and horses we have. Oh one red bull! No more goat or peacocks though I've had fish, gerbils, hamsters, and a hedgehog though.

    The maximum acceptable number of cats is three. I visited one of my father's friends once; she had four cats. I was there for six hours (we helped finish her deck). At no point during those six hours could I look in any direction and *not* see at least one cat. Usually two. Therefour four is too many.

    Freya, you live on a farm. (...used to!) That shouldn't count for this thread!

    The most animals my family had at the house... was two cats. Or maybe three if I decided to include the stray kitten that briefly stuck around before it died.

    I am just... that ace!

    You're just jealous cause I win the animal thread. When I went off to college, of course I couldn't have a pet in the dorm and that year I went crazy without having an animal around. I grew up with so many that I now find people who don't have any pets weird. People who don't like animals are weird.

    The most I had was 2 cats. Due to the Association rules or w/e you wanna call them we are only aloud 1 animal either a cat or a dog under 30 lbs. So my step bro took the other cat with him only to give it away to someone else so he could get a dog.

    I had my two ferrets, hedgehog, goldfishes and hissing cockroaches at the same time. It was the happiest I've ever been.

    My friends once had a dog, a cat, and a bunny. And despite trying to clean up, spending an entire day there actually caused me to suffer pretty severe allergic reactions.

    The bunny passed away so it's slightly better (esp if I wash my hands every hour) when I visit.

    Bam.

    Personally I've never had more than three pets in the same house, and only temporarily. At home it's usually just one pet at a time. We don't have time to take care of farms.

    I have also had these things except for the peacocks. One of the neighbors at Sarah's old apartment had a peacock that would get out and roam the complex. He was an asshole. That made us not want peacocks. But I have had horses and goats when I was living on the ranch and a lot of my families raised chickens (I smurfing love chickens) and we currently have 8 cats and 2 dogs and a chinchilla now. Also some of the stray raccoons and possums are playful so we take care of them too because they love us the baby skunks under the neighbor's house love to play with the cats and it's adorable to watch them play together. The cats that they play with are black and white so I guess they think they're family?
    At one point a few years ago a friend brought home a mountain lemur (no idea where she got it or how) and we ended up keeping it for like three months until somebody found at we had it and we discovered that it's apparently illegal to have your own monkey without some exotic animal license that you can't get here anyway. Ah, memories.

    I want more animals.

    I'm allergic to animal dander too but as long as we vacuum at least every other day it's no big deal. I love them too much

    The thing is I'm not supposed to be allergic to these sorts of things. Very odd (unless it's normal to develop adult onset allergies?)

    The most animals I've had at one time was 5, at two separate points in my life. First, 3 cats and 2 dogs, followed by 2 cats, 1 dog, and 2 rats.

    Right now I have one cat and she is crazy enough that I don't want another pet right now. Also I think she would not get along with another animal.
