I’ve been noticing alot lately about people who have a TON of pets. . . .perhaps I am more sensitive to it as I have recently added to my own moggie crew. I now have three cats.
I work with a lady who now has 3 dogs, 1 cat and a parrot. Is that too many? She can sustain her household adequetly, and wouldn’t deny any of them medical treatment.
What about ‘S’ from a previous (rant) entry? She now has 2 dogs and 2 cats, and barely enough money to support her household, and if you read the rant (here: http://joeymoggie.wordpress.com/2006/11/26/how-much-moola-would-you-spend-on-your-moggies/) you know that she has, and might deny vet services.
So the question is, how many pets is too many pets?
I personally believe that it is a case-by-case situation, obviously things like
- Type of House
- Amount of Time Home
- Total Household Income
- Experience etc etc etc. . . . . should all be taken into consideration. . . . .
