How Many Cats Makes You Crazy Cat Lady?There is certainly a point in which cat ownership takes a crazy turn. But it doesn't happen over night.
Usually, cats are brought in from the street or rescued from a shelter, and repeat. A fairly common situation is that a woman turns into a Crazy Cat Lady as she collects more and more cats out of the kindness of her heart, but it turns into a hoarding situation with 35 cats living in a tiny house and the neighbors complaining that it smells.
So how many cats is to much?
The general consensus on this matter is that if you have to ask, then it is probably too much. If you have 7 cats, but are able to easily handle it, you won't really ask many people if you have too many cats. But if you have 7 cats and handling just 1 is too much for you, then yes, 7 is too much. Back it down a bit.
Depends on the cat, depends on the person
Just like no two people are alike, no two cats are alike either. Some require much more attention and care than others. Some are very easy going while some scratch and hiss at everything. Cats can be like that too :)
So stop worrying about it, and if you are worried about it, then you probably have too many cats.
