About This Quiz
As we're sure you know, having a pet is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. One single cat can take a lot of energy, time and money to care for properly. Before you find yourself buried in the litter box, we think it's a good idea to figure out how many cats you should own.
While some people have the kind of personality that can handle living with dozens of cats, other people are better suited to maintain a one cat household. After we learn how you feel about cats and the way you handle them, we will do our best to calculate the number of furry beasts with which you should share your home. There's no wrong number of cats to own, but there is a responsible number based upon the way you interact with them.
As you claw your way through our questions, make sure to put on your best catitude and to turn your nose up at any answer that doesn't sit right in your food bowl. Once we see what you have in common with our favorite beasts, the number of them you should call your babies will be clear! Should you be a one cat human or should you own your own herd of them?
