1. We have seven cats
They're neither pets nor livestock. We're their staff. :D

2. I have 7 inside cats and 9 outside cats.
They aren't ever going to be my livestock, they are my family.

I'd say "welcome" but you've been around a while. So just, howdy. :hi:

5. We just went from two cats to four.
In the morning they're all over me looking for food. It's like farm chores now.

8. We have the same problem.
Just please be sure to spay and neuter your cats, and really if you can afford it you should fix any other "regular" feline visitors. It's the best way to help combat animal suffering and also help control the cat population on your property also.

3. No, no, no, no, no . . . see, you can HERD livestock.
Try herding cats. ;)

We have 8-9 indoor, of which four are in/out, and at last count, four permanent ferals/semi-ferals outside, and innumerable hobo ferals.

Never livestock. Always pets. Even the ferals (just check their vet bills).

:hi:

10. Depends on the ratio of cats to staff (what we call humans).

15. 1
Just one if it's the size of my recently- inherited monster of a cat. He opens his mouth and says "Me, uh, sorry, MOOOOO!"
