Again; Thanks!!


Second at the same time or second sequential? The optimum number of cats
is usually two or three at the same time.

only have one cat or dog at a time and the dog can't be over a certain
size You can have more birds and fish though.

Well, I guess not everybody can live out in the country ... with fourteen
cats, plus visiting families of skunks, coons and possums ... and
hummingbirds, more of those than I can count or even estimate.

Why is that? My family has usually had only one cat at a time. The cats
always seemed
happy. I guess w/two or more they have company and someone to play with
though.

It's usually held that two will be playmates; with three, two will gang ou
on the third. That may or may not be true: three may get along well with
each other, or two will be a team and ignore the third while the third
ignores them; on the other hand, two may never become friends, but they do
provide interest for each other.

Personally, I prefer enough so that there is almost always one handy for
lap duty. Until I got CJ, that took over a dozen - him, I can't get rid
of when I *don't* want a lap cat. The current count (indoor/outdoor cats
living out in the country) is fourteen.
