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"!
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?
