Here Kittty, Kitty?

Do the cat lovers out here in EF land tend to see their cats constantly, very often, seldom or almost never ("what? You mean we own a cat"?).

How social are your cats...with you?

Well, there are five (indoors only) in our household currently (I say currently because we take in and do our best to re-home strays: five have passed through in the past year -- of those one died (complications from FIV, humane euthanasia), three were re-homed, and the other one is with us (in my lap currently) as he is big, mangy, and FIV-positive and thus not really "re-homeable").

Five cats in a three bedroom household means there's usually one or more in a room with us at any given time, and there's usually one in my lap. Sometimes two. It gets crowded when my dog (a Pug) is also in my lap!

Wow...you have a house full. I don't envy your vet bills either. I asked this because we have friends with indoor cats (we are dog people) and they sometimes go days without seeing either of their two cats!!!! That sure isn't life with a "dog"!

You are a wonderful woman for doing all that for those cats!

I had been collecting strays and no one would take them, so naturally they are mine now (I had to humanely put a few down, too and it broke my heart!). Thank goodness I moved from that neighborhood, or I'd continue accumulating! And I can barely financially handle the five I have.

My cats are so intensely bonded to me, they may as well be dogs! They follow me everywhere, sleep with me, on me, are constantly in my face...and I love it! I only have one who is a cranky pants, I think she would prefer to be an only cat and she sleeps in the living room as her little domain, but comes into the bedroom when the others are on the bed with me and she hangs out on the floor for a while. It's how she is; she likes to be near the other cats, but not messed with. She's a strange little girl, but she seems very happy.

I cannot imagine not seeing my cats for days! I'd freak out and worry, but there are some strange cats out there. I would think they'd show up for food at least? Maybe the owners have to leave down dry food all the time just so they know the cats get some?

I have 2 indoor cats, so I see them every day. My tabby likes to sleep with me and the younger, more active cat likes to rub up on my leg when I'm busy on my laptop or in the bathroom. She always wants me to turn the bathtub's faucet on low and let her walk under it.

We have 2 indoor cats. How much we see them depends on how much the dog is around. Somedays we see them long enough for them to walk through the living room to get to the litter box, others they are around most of the day.
