This morning I discovered this video on YouTube (Cat Indoor Playland) and thought I’d found my dream house.
The owner of the house starts listing all his cats and I start thinking, “Oh my! How many cats does he have?! That’s insane.”
At the time of this video, he had 15. Because of my fostering work, I have 14 in house and 2 at a nearby pet store.
Ready— in age order— Oz, Opie, Venom, TJ, Misty, Fog, Hermes, Mars, Jupiter, Minerva, Vesta, Fenrir, Loki and Vale.
When I first started fostering I met a woman (whom I lovingly and admiringly refer to as my foster godmother) who had a cat room in her house, outdoor cats and cats in cages in her garage.
A lot of cats.
I have come to understand that the cage cats are transitioning back to life as outdoor cats, many of whom will be relocated to a barn or farm.
But this man is right— cats don’t usually congregate together so when they do it is special. And there’s usually one or two interesting in what you are doing.
So I’m officially becoming a crazy cat lady, but I love seeing them move on to new homes and seeing their growth.
