How many pets are too many?
I have 2 dogs, 2 cats & 2 finches in 1100 sq/ft home. I clean everyday and people w/allergies have never complained....too many?

Why do you ask?

If it suits you to have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 finches, then it's OK.

Just as a matter of interest, do you have any problems with the dogs chasing the cats, and the cats chasing the finches (thoughts of Tom & Jerry here).

Lol, it just when people ask how many pets I have...I tell them and there is like an "ew" expression of distaste. I just wanted an average of opinions. I LOVE animals and at one time wanted to be a vet. I think my life would be a lot more empty without them...granted, I would have more time on my hands.

As for Tom and Jerry....my husband's name is Jerry...does that work

When you start loosing your sanity, too many pets.
Before we had kids, my limit was 3 cats and a ferret.
Phoebe, Lokki, Jingo, and Sabrina de Gato.

Well, I for one don't think you've got too many.

My sister on the other hand, has 6 dogs, 4 rabbits, two Chinchillas at the moment (she keeps selling the young uns to a local pet store, who gives her free food for her other animals in exchange), a couple of Hamsters and a Parrot.

OK, she's got a lot of space, but that's over the top. Still, even from being a kid, she always brought home all the waifs and strays, and she's not changed in that respect at all.

I've just got two Dobermanns, Susie & Sasha.

I agree -- on both counts! Currently, my count is two dogs and three cats. The number fluctuates, but I always like to have the combination. When I get tired from walking the dogs, I can sit down with a cat in my lap...

My brother currently has 14 cats -- he took in a stray with kittens six years ago (didn't adopt any of them out), and took in a pregnant stray this spring -- had six kittens, then another was dumped in a sack in his roadway -- hasn't found anyone yet to adopt any of these, and doesn't really want to give them away although even he realizes that 14 is too many for him to afford -- just the spay/neuter costs are going to be expensive...
