    Hello,

    I have the company of 6 cats at home.
    5 cats are taken from the animal shelter and one is taken from our neighbour.
    Here is a slide show with all 6 cats:

    Did you mean "taken from the pound"...?

    If you have cats that can swim I'll buy a ticket to see THAT!!

    When you start making .gifs with cats, you know you spend too much time on the internet.

    Hello,

    I mean they are bought at the animal shelter.
    The animal shelter takes care of the cats that are either found, because they where a wanderer and the owner could not be found,
    or brought to the animal shelter because the owner can not take care of it anymore.

    Hades / American Pit Bull

    Toby / Boxer

    Lexie / ? have to ask my daughter / A little white dog?

    Zoie / Mexican Chiwawa

    ButterScotch / Hemingway cat, it has thumbs.

    Omega / Cat Black and White

    Edit: All of the them co-exist peacefully. I'm suspicious the Cats have a ( Mafia hit ) on the Chiwawa.

    I limit the number of pets, but I do enjoy them, both cats and dogs.

    When you have a cat as big as this one (Jack), you can only afford one. :)

    I had a Betta, but he couldn't handle the stress of moving and died. RIP, Bear Gills.

    We had a 12 year run with miniature schnauzers, then about the same with up to three cats. Then my wife developed severe allergies.

    Oh, and during that run. We also had rabbits, hermit crabs, scorpions and others I have certainly forgotten! (There parakeets, lizards, goldfish and koi)

    I like the name...

    At one point, we had 3 cats: Mussolini, Sean Connery, and Milo. Now the only cats are Milo and William Shatner.

    What made you name the cat "Mussolini"?

    Actually, it was her given name when we got her.

    However, with how mean that cat was, naming her after a dictator was well suited...

    He is our third dog. All were adopted/saved from shelters.

    That almost looks like my Cat Butterscotch.

    Hey, I'm going to weigh her tonight, could you weigh your cat? I want to see how many pounds difference between the two.

    Yup!!!! 2 full blooded fully trained German Shepherd Service and PTSD dogs, a happy old Golden retriever and another 5 sisters out in the yard taking long naps waiting for us at the bridge. The sleeping sisters don't bark much and are really cheap to feed, but don't play very much very often anymore either...

    Used to like having dogs & cats as a kid, when my parents took care of them. Now, I can't justify buying a useless animal, paying for food, paying for shots, cleaning up its messes, letting it outside, bathing it, etc. I have enough of that from the kids. If the kids want a companion, they have each other. If I ever get a dog, it will be guard dog; the only useful type of dog for 99% of people. Never a chihuahua never a cat.

    Not necessarily. Depending of where you buy, you could need just to change batteries from time to time.
