But, I swear, I've seen this at my house, and they almost look like my bunch...

Little bladders with fur, I swear...

Whoops. I left a comment because I though this was lourdesmont's picture. I hoped she hadn't gone over four cats like someone else I know...

Someday I'd like to hear the story of how you wound up with so many cats. I doubt it was something you planned, or was it?

Hemingway once said that one cat just leads to another. That's kind of what happened. We came to Georgia from Chicago with five, and actually got down to three, then, well, it kinda got out of hand...

Incidentally, I got the comment that you left the first time. I got a big laugh out of it.

I figured you would. It is impossible to see a large number of cats without thinking of you.

One woman at work started fostering cats. She has three of her own, and just took in two 11-year-olds which, most likely, won't be adopted. She said one night all five tried to sleep on her bed but began having territorial wars instead. It was then she decided that five is probably too many, but I really don't know if she is done yet.

It gets overwhelming at times and we've actually considered finding new homes for them, then we realize that our bunch is getting older and probably would never find other homes. Judi's kittens (who are eleven today) were born here and have never lived anywhere else, and Homer and Jethro were about three weeks old when we took them in and really don't know another home. I think it would be traumatic for them, and neither Mary and I could deal with it. As much trouble as they can be (peeing where they shouldn't, getting into fights etc.) we really love them and think of them as family. But this is it. We're both in our fifties and it's time to let the number decline to zero.
