During the first few years of our marriage, my husband and I had 7 cats…all rescued. Thinking we were doing the right thing by giving a loving home to as many as we could, we later learned that there is such a thing as too many.
As with all things in life, balance is everything. Having so many kitters under one roof ended up creating a stressful environment for all of them. The ages of our feline family ranged from very young to very old so within a few years after our elders had passed on, we decided not to add any new members to the group.
It was a valuable lesson. As much as we wanted to, we came to realize that we can’t save/help ALL who are in need. But we can help a few…and by doing so we are able to offer them the absolute best life we can.
