I chose the "I'm not telling", but only because there was no option for 5! Yes, I live alone with 5 cats & I love it! If I could afford it & they all would get along, I'd have more! I love dogs, also, but I can't live without cats, I have been drawn to them since I was a baby. In my previous house, everyone on the street called me the cat lady because I kept rescuing all the stray cats. My next door neighbors called me the cat whisperer, because I could get the most feral of cats to come around. As I write this from my bed, I have three cats draped on me! One on my legs, one under my left arm with her head on my shoulder & the other on my abdomen...heaven! All I need is a dog or two, (that the cats don't mind, HA, it'll never happen), and life would be even better!
